Double Trouble

Here’s something I wrote a little bit ago but wasn’t sure if I wanted to post it or not.

I’m a little embarrassed to even be writing about what happened to me.

I need to get a couple of things done today and none of them are things that I am particularly looking forward to. The worst of the bunch is dealing with my upcoming DUI charge. My court date is exactly one month from now and I need to figure out what I’m going to do about it. I also need to deal with my car because I seriously think the transmission on it is going out. I am no mechanic but I am pretty sure that is what is going on. When I shift into 2nd gear it is fine but when I try to shift into 3rd it doesn’t want to do it. I have been just skipping that gear altogether which I know isn’t good. Reverse isn’t working that well either but thankfully I don’t have to use that too often. I’m going to take it into a shop that my buddy Greg works out and have him or one of his coworkers look at it.

My DUI is a whole other bag of beans. I should have known that sooner or later I would get one but like most people I thought I was invincible. I know I probably can’t get the charge dropped because I was well over the legal limit. I am just glad I didn’t cause an accident or anything like that. I got pulled over because I forgot to use my turn signal when I changed lanes on the highway; I wasn’t speeding or anything but that is all it took. After doing some research and talking to a few people, I know and am going to need an attorney when I go to court. I’m thinking about talking to this firm. I am going to call them later this afternoon when I’m done with my car. I think I should get that looked at first because that is my only mode of transportation. Hopefully I won’t need a new transmission because I know how expensive they are, and if that’s the case I would probably just have to get a whole new car which means a car payment that I don’t have right now. I guess you could say that I’m not in a very good spot in my life right now but I have nobody to blame but myself. It’s apparent to me that I need to get my act together and soon because I am not getting any younger.
