Earlier in the week I had my oil changed, at Jiffy Lube. I go there often as it’s on the way home from work. I went to Mom’s this morning and hung out for a while. I had to deliver some Scentsy in town, and then on the east side of Iowa City.
I had ordered a Drive Up order at Target, so I swung by and picked that up. I swung into the ATM at MidWest One on 965 and then right by the Post Office my car started to ding, a warning. It said Change Oil Soon. Then it said Engine Power Reduced. I was able to make it home. I tried to call Joe; but as usual he struggled to hear me and didn’t call back after hanging up on me. I posted a few pictures on Facebook. I checked my oil. It didn’t seem too low, but I added a quart of oil. It started up just fine, but the warning still said change oil soon.
I’m of course worried about getting to work tomorrow. I texted my coworker to let her know I’m going to take it in first thing in the AM, then I’ll be in. My boss is on vacation. I hate this. It’s a $35-40 taxi ride one way to work. Here’s hoping it’s just something Jiffy Lube messed up. But, if it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have none. I’m not holding my breath.
Seriously, fuck my life.
