As I drove home this afternoon (I had to drive myself since my carpool took a vacation day) I was thinking about the numerous accessories that I could buy for the new phone that I just ordered. Phone accessories are so expensive. I am not sure which ones I will need yet so I didn't order any with the phone. I usually have $50 every month to spend either on something I need or if I'm lucky, something I want.
September was looking good. I didn't have anything on my need list. Well, the truck probably needs a tune-up but it just got an oil change, isn't that good enough? As I was dreaming of bluetooth and memory cards it hit me...a rock. It put a big star shaped crack in my windshield. Bummer. So much for September's fun money.
Now, should I have the star repaired or wait for a bigger crack and have the whole windshield replaced? I took the glass insurance off of the truck 2 years ago right after I got a new windshield. I've been very lucky. 2 years and barely a chip. I know I should have it repaired. It will be cheaper in the long run unless I get hit with another rock after the repair. That's the chance I take for owning a vehicle. Those phone accessories will have to go on my Christmas list.
