Van Woes

(copied from message board Thursday)

i had a problem with the caravan on wednesday. i've been wanting the brakes looked at for a while, and it finally went really bad on wed.

my back right brake just froze up. i was upset and stubborn, and well, dumb, lol, and i thought i could loosen it up by driving it, eeek.

i made skid marks up and down the driveway, and then if that weren't a clue, i kept going out the driveway and down the street. i stopped when i smelled burning rubber, and i pulled into a driveway.

my sweet old neighor actually chased me down, and ordered me out of the car. yikes. he's sweet, but very demanding. i was so embarrassed, and bugged at the situation, i was pretty curt with him. i pulled the van out to the curb, and left it. later, when i had calmed down, i went and hugged my neighbor, and told himi wasn't upset with him, and i was sorry for the way i acted.

we're going to get it fixed saturday, jeffie has 1/2 day.
