Sometimes there is a sequence of unfortunate events all happening very close together. For example if you think that having a second car is a good backup against mechanical troubles, well it is not. Last Saturday the flagship of our little car fleet went into major troubles, while the backup already left me in Castellanza outskirts. I just called the mechanic and he told me there is problem with coils they are to be replaced. Well that’s the third time. My Scenic is going to cost me more in coils than in gasoline!
The first time the warranty period had just expired. It was a manufacturing fault so Renault offered the repair at half the price. The second time was last year. The mechanic replaced the four coils, at least that’s what he said. According to the current mechanic, three of the installed coils are of the same kind while the fourth differs.
Anyway, if this is the Universal Order, acting through the Law of Large Numbers, taking back what he gave us by the wonderful event occurred on January 23… well I feel like the old Jack Burton saying – Just remember what ol’ Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says, ‘Give me your best shot. I can take it.'”
