Tuesday, my son and daughter-in-law left to drive to Dothan to eat with her family. They had car trouble at the bank in Ozark, AL and the wonderful guys at Jim Whaley Tires had the car towed to their shop and had the charge added to their bill. (They’re the same guys that fixed the car last year when Alexa had to dodge the giant pine log and flattened 2 of the tires.)
Lucky for us, all it was was the alternator and a new one was easily acquired. We got the phone call about 5:30 to come get the car, and when we opened the door we discovered this note stuck in the frame.
Alexa was livid! She has spent many evenings being upset because of the arguments this mother and daughter have and sometimes they sound physical. At one point The Kids even thought about moving because of the noise coming from upstairs.
I kept reminding her that we had to get the car because Jim Whaley Tires was closing at 6 and would not reopen until Jan 2. Luckily we only live about a mile away, but the shop was dark when we arrived. I thought they had already closed, but had not. While I pulled out my trusty plastic to charge the repairs, Alexa called the landlord.
This was not how I’d planned to spend my New Year’s Eve: being in “neighbor conflict,” but that’s life folks! Onward..
