Mechanicophobia

You know you are quite mad when, faced with having a dentist's appointment and having to take a car into the garage to be repaired, both on the same day, you lie awake all night worrying about how the heck you are going to buck up the courage to walk into the garage's reception.

I'm a lot better than I used to be about walking into new places but for some reason garages still scare the living daylights out of me. I think it's because it is so easy for mechanics to pull the wool over my eyes and rip me off. They also, have a habit of trying to make you feel really stupid.

    My car has been out of commission for a couple of months now. The intimidation factor, and guilt, and shame, and further intimidation have been quite distressing. 🙁
