When it Rains it Pours.

So I still don't have my car. As I stated earlier I was supposed to pick it up on Wednesday. My mother and I went down to the dealership to pick it up. When we got there we went straight to the cash register to pay and get my keys. Well...... when they handed me my keys they had two different ones and they said that I would need one to open my door and one to start the car. How obnoxious and inconvenient right?? I was pissed. I ran out to my car to see the "new" steering wheel they installed. OH MY HELL, that steering wheel looked even worse than the one I had before even when it was all ripped apart. This thing looked as if it had been sitting in a dumb for a few years and looked like it was disintegrating and had so many scratches on it. DISGUSTING! (I forgot to get pictures because I was so upset.) When the insurance guy called me on Monday and told me that they were ordering recycled parts I didn't think it would be a big deal cause I assumed that they would at least be NICE recycled parts. My mother being the mama bear that she is, called the insurance guy and chewed him out. He then blamed the dealership on not refusing the parts. They nice guy at the shop kept saying they have never been told that they could refuse parts and that no where it says they can. At this point I didn't really care whose fault it was I just wanted my car fixed but the insurance guy would not stop blaming it on the dealership. SO ANNOYED. So now the status is that I wont be getting my car back till next week but they are ordering and installing NEW parts.
On top of all of this last night Ryan's battery in his car died. Luckily we made it to Auto Zone to buy a new one before the car completely gave out. When it rains it pours eh??
