Default My car needs some karma.....

My poor car failed it's MOT yesterday - new brake pads and £178 later it finally passed.

Then today it was frosty and when I tried to open the window it made a cracking noise and then FELL OUT!!! So back to the garage and just been called to say it is ready and that will cost me anoher £110...........

The worst thing is I am selling the bloody thing in Jan when I move out, but didn't have much choice - needed an MOT and couldn't drive windowless!!

Need cheering up...........karma and all gifts much appreciated

Have just send you Karma, so hope you will feel much better. Still better than having to pay for someone elses fines. We had no luck arguing over our unjustified fine and were told to pay up or pay extra charges. Would not give us evidence photo. Good luck everyone!
