Her car is parked in her driveway and it has a flat. Not an emergency since she is using MY spare car. She called yesterday and asked for help to fix the flat ASAP. Apparently the city inspector said that is a violation to city code and she will be fined for $250 if the flat is not fixed in 3 days. I have no problem with helping the mother of my kids so I said OK. I went there yesterday and gave her my portable air compressor, that should do the job.
She called again this morning and said the tire went flat again overnight. OK, I told her she needs to take the tire out, get it to the shop, fix it, put it back. "Can you do it?"... oh well, yeah... I'm off and the kids are in school, what the heck. But when I got there, freaking new boyfriend sitting on the porch, smoking a cigarette without a care in the world... I drive by and came back home. I called, left voicemail "You have an able man there that can fix your flat. No need for me to do it."
She called back some minutes ago, left voicemail... "YOU have to fix it! And if I get fined, you gonna have to pay the fine!".
All I can say is... she really has a pair.
Surprisingly, I'm not upset, mad, jealous or depressed. Looks like I'm finally reaching the point where I don't give a sh1t anymore. And that's good, very very good.
All that's left now is to decide if I'm gonna fix the fricking flat or not. After all, it is in my best interest to help her get her car up and running again, so I can have my spare car back. I should probably help with the re-title too. I don't want my name on her car's title.
So, to fix or not to fix?
