8/1- Car Upkeep
When you buy a car, you hope you are getting a fine piece of machinery. However, if you want to keep it in good shape, there are constant expenses. Every couple months you've got to get the oil changed. Every 10K or so you need to get the tires rotated. You need to get the brakes checked. You need to do this. You need to do that. (granted, I could probably learnto do many of these things myself, but I won't)
I can't think of a single other product that requires this much upkeep. Would you ever buy a bookcase if you had to replace the shelves every 3 months? I know I wouldn't. Its sh*t like this that makes me jealous of those of you who live in a city. For all the hassles of public transportation, atleast you don't have to maintain it.
Car upkeep: I hate you.
