July is automobile inspection month for TV Stevie and me. We schedule the appointments around my must-take vacation (when Day Job shuts down for a week), which is the most convenient way to handle it. Because when my car is in the shop, I don’t have a car. When his car is in the shop, I don’t have a car–he needs wheels for his Day Job. If I’m off work, I don’t have to think about packing a lunch (I usually come home to eat) or leaving on time (I usually have to wait for him to pick me up or try to catch a ride with a co-worker).
This year, I forgot to tell our mechanic to uninstall the app in TV’s car that prevents it from stopping at the supermarket when he runs out of something.
