Since you guys asked, here is the car story: The check oil light turned on one day and I ignored it for months. Then my car started smoking. I ignored that too for a few weeks. Then one day when I was on the highway, driving home after closing up at work at 1 in the morning, the car started smoking a LOT, luckily at the exit I needed. I pulled into a gas station (dumb) and then was almost immediately surrounded by police cars and an officer rushed over and shooed me away from my car just as flames started licking up around the hood. Luckily it was all smothered quickly and I just got a stern talking to from the police and I had to call my aunt to come get me and have my car towed away but I still sold it on craigslist hahaha sucker.
