My luck sucks

My luck sucks...

My wife and I was driving my jeep over to Kens to pick up my car that he was working on. About two miles from his shop my breaks starting fading, then pulling one direction. After that and pumping the breaks to stop the break pedal got rock hard to push. Then the bad metalic burning smell started. The good thing was it was going the right direction to Allpro. But dang get one thing fixed and the next goes out. This sucks.

Hey, at least you had a ride home! At least you didn't crash because of brake failure and kill 7 small school children that were on their way to the petting zoo...

I know that feeling. I've had vehicles towed to Ken's just in time to drive one of the other cars home that he just finished working on...
