I Got No Power Window*
March 29, 2008
You know what sucks. When the motor on your vehicle’s power window goes out with the window halfway down. It happened to me the other day, then a few hours later I tried to put it up, and miraculously, it went up. I vowed to stop using it immediately, to spare myself from a relapse.
Well, I forget easily, and history repeated itself multiple times. Sometimes at the McDonald’s drive thru, sometimes at the ATM, once when someone ripped a particularly rank one, and again when crossing a railroad track where the lights were flashing and no train was in sight. Each time my window went down, but not up again for several hours, resulting in me having to drive to my destination with the window down in the bitter March cold. Each time I bartered with fate, vowing to never roll the window down again if it would just go up. I was overjoyed each time it did go up, and quickly forgot about my promise to fate.
Yesterday was particularly cold, and I had to drive to and from work, freezing my arse off. It was bad, but I think I finally learned my lesson, as I did not try to roll it down today. I should really probably go cover the switch with some duct tape or something.
