Necessary check-up for my car. Maximum calculated cost I was prepared for was only a fifth of the total amount.
Not only the brake pads had to be changed, but the brake discs had rusted. How can this happen? It's not as if I never use the brakes.
Anyway, parents agreed to pay it. I can't describe how relieved I am.
Nothing like a little financial shock to show me how thankful I should be to have them.
