12.4 Place - Dealership

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the fourth day of each month is "Place."
We paid off our car last October in just under five years and just as the odometer went over 100,000 miles and we went out of warranty.  I still take our car to the dealership to get oil changes, though, mostly because our 2010 Hyundai Elantra has had about a billion recalls,* so I like the reassurance that my anti-lock brakes aren't going to fail me just as they are supposed to do their anti-lock thing. 

So today I spent an hour in the waiting room of our local dealership, waiting for them to replace the inside door handles (!), enjoying coffee from their Keurig, and reading a trashy romance novel on my Kindle.  Don't say that you're not jealous of my Monday morning.
And then I went to the grocery store and then I went to work. Mondays. Who needs them anyway?

*I exaggerate. It's been at least six recalls that I can think of off the top of my head and this seems like a lot to me. Maybe this is a common thing for all automobiles, but the constant barrage of postcards from Hyundai sometimes leaves me concerned that the whole contraption is just going to fall into a million pieces while I'm cruising down I-43 going eighty.  Hence, waiting an hour for some mechanic to replace door handles (!) this morning.
To see what Bestest Friend wrote about the theme of the day, check out her blog, Too Legit to Quit.
