So today I was knitting on a sock while I got my car serviced. I also needed a new headlight. I thought I had LED ones and that it wouldn’t be a big deal, or a huge cost, to get it replaced. Wrong! Wrong to da max! My car has HID lights. And just one of them was….are you ready? $250!!! Because it has the ballast already in it or something. I love how bright they are, but sheesh!! I hope the other one doesn’t go out soon. And on our dark country roads, having my headlight back is a good thing.
I used to change my own headlights. Simple. Buy the bulb. Open the hood. Take out the old bulb. Install the new one. Not any more.
But I knit on a sock while I was there and I didn’t have to wait too long; at least my socks don’t cost that much.
Ouch indeed. My dad, the former grease monkey, used to be able to almost all the servicing on his cars. Now, no can.
So true. If no can, no can. No more if can, yeah?
