Expensive Repairs

Tia dropped her truck off this morning to get it serviced before her trip next week. It needs the 60k service, but the recliner knob on her seat broke. She got a call a little while ago that the knob/lever is $20, but it’s almost $200 to take the seat apart and get it on there. She also has an issue with a trailer light and needs to drop that off.

Both of these are fairly simple repairs, though likely time consuming. I think between the two of us we could get both of these done, but we don’t have time this week. We’re both busy, weather is semi-lousy, and I travel on Thursday.

So we’ll end up paying a few hundred dollars for someone else to fix things. I hate doing that, especially in places where we could build some skills and repair things ourselves in the future, but I think it’s unavoidable in this case.
