Not Me! Monday

For a few weeks now, I have been following this blog, which has a segment every week entitled "'Not Me!' Mondays". For the same few weeks, I have been wanting to replicate this segment in my own corner of the blogging world. Alas, I have always forgotten about it until Tuesday or Wednesday, and by then, it would just be lame. BUT, today the stars have aligned. So, I bring you . . .

This week, I so did not take the car to the repair shop, forgetting on the way that the 896 bridge is closed and so making the trip 20 minutes longer than it should have been. While at said repair shop, I definitely didn't find out that our car needed much more maintenance than we thought and would need to stay the night. After I wasn't told this, I certainly didn't tell them to just keep the car tonight, only thinking about how I could probably find a ride home, and not how I would get back to the shop tomorrow. I definitely did not continue to forget about this unsolved problem until I was halfway home. And all this did not happen because the dealership screwed us over and charged us waaaay too much for waaay too little service. Nope. We would never let that happen. We are informed consumers who always know what's going on and shop around so that we don't get taken.

And that is how "'Not Me!' Monday" works. Join in for a dose of humility. :-)

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
