Car Inspection Woes

I just got back from trying to get my car inspected. Unfortunately the brakes were bad enough to warrant a “Rejection Sticker” so I’ll be needing to take a day off and get new brakes installed before the 10 days are up that the Rejection Sticker gives you before trying again.

I don’t have new brakes in my budget at this time, so it looks like I’ll be needing to break out my credit card, which I have been shying away from this past year. So far I have managed to pay cash for just about everything since I put my foot down on the credit card usage that we all have been guilty of using more than we should. But sometimes you have to do what you have to do and having a charge card has saved my butt on more than one occasion, just like this one.
