It’s never easy

So I took my car back to the collision place for a few niggling issues — the trunk latch was flaky, the steering wheel was rotated slightly, and the brake light was out. I just called to get an ETA (after a whole day) and it turns out when they checked it out, they found that the rear axle was bent (How was that missed in the first place? The car had its rear end smashed against the curb…) So now the new estimate is late next week, which is great except… I’m getting married in Connecticut late next week. I need to drive from DC Wednesday, be there all weekend, then leave the country for over two weeks, then get back and the next day, drive back to DC. How is that going to work with a rental?

That’s what I’m hopefully finding out very soon. Why can’t it just be easy?
