I got the car back

I got the car back this morning, after paying the bill. The mechanic said it was "unsafe" to drive it the way I had been. I guess that makes me a daredevil! Actually, the struts were so far gone that a couple other pieces in the rear suspension had to be replaced too, which is what ran the bill up so far. However, the car is much easier to drive now that it's not bouncing all over the road.
