Remember, Megan

there is nothing people want more of in their media diet than rich white people complaining about the slight drawbacks of being rich. Megan bought a relatively exotic car model which only has one very busy dealership in the area, and now that it needs service, she can't legally drive to the dealership.

This leaves me with two choices: spend hundreds of dollars and leave my car parked for at least another month, or fix it myself.
Fun, huh? This is what my whole month has been like, friends. It's just one damn thing after another, and funnily enough, almost all of it the product of some useless bureaucratic innovation designed to convenience the designer at the expense of a "customer" they don't care about.
Nobody knoooooows the trouble she's seen, nobody knows, but Jeeeeeeeebus.
She's a trooper, our Megan. Despite it all, she carries on.

I just don't get it. How could The Market have failed so badly? Every firm or agency she's dealt w/ in her last month of horror should have folded up yrs. ago!

It's a complete mystery to me.

Has she ever been able to use this car? Or has it sat in her mother's garage since she bought it?

I'm with M.Bouffant. The marketplace has dictated that with so few Mini-Coopers in the area, the market can't support more than one repair shop. So why is she bitching? Sears will die when people like her stop buying things there. Isn't that Libertarian 101?

And note to Megan--service people are more helpful when you don't yell at, bully, and threaten them. Believe it or not, they are your equals.
