What a month
1. I had problems with my kitchen under-sink drainage. My local plumber's from the Unique Service Company fixed them at a cost of $174 - and for the first time since 2006 my sinks drain well.
2. I knew that I needed two new tires/'tyres for my2006 car. My super local and independent service station (Sam's Auto) took care of this and also recommended a wheel alignment and tyre balance; a flushing of the transmission fluids, and various other flushings and replacements - at a total cost of $700.
3. Now my desk top computer has refused to open, and needs work. At the very least it will cost $100 (if the problem has to do with the on/off switch), But if the mother board is shot I'll have a much higher bill. (I am using my slow and clunky Notebook to post this)
4. I can jiggle my bills and use a credit card to take care of these unexpected expenses,
5, But if I were a single mother with two children; who has an "old banger" of a car which she needs for her two jobs; and who does not have a credit card; and who lives in a run down apartment ---- well all these "if's" would be daunting.
That's the bit which the Tories and Republicans just don't get,.
