I got off work today at 4:30, which isn't unusual. I started the drive home. I turned down one of the roads I take, and about halfway down the road, I realized, rather abruptly, that I had an agonizing pain pulsating in my head... My ears were hurting and my head felt like it was going to burst. Clearly, this alarmed me. It only took me a second to realize that there was a strange noise that was pulsating (word used loosely, as I didn't actually comprehend what the hell was going on at the time...) in the same way as the discomfort I was feeling. Me, being the quick person I am, put two and two together and decided that they must be connected. I turned down my radio and my heater, and listened. The sound that was causing this discomfort was, in fact, coming from the rental car I was driving. When I stopped the car at a red light, the sound and discomfort stopped too. So... the pain and the sound were connected, and it was definitely coming from the car. I called my mom (because that's what I do when I don't know what else to do), and explained to her what was going on. She told me I needed to call the rental company. I checked my car for flat tires, there were none. The sound, which was similar to a helicopter noise, continued until I pulled into a parking lot... I called the rental place, no answer. I called the 800 number, got a nice lady who went out of her way to help me. She couldn't get a hold of the branch either, so she found another one near where I was and told me the address. She then set up a switch for me at this branch so I'd have a car. So I drove, with the noise, to this branch.

When I arrived at the place, I waited for a while... only to discover that they didn't have a car ready for me... there were some Chargers available, but they, apparently, were already rented out. The only available car was this Veiho (spelling?) that had just been returned by this disgusting man who was very rude... me, being who I am, decided that I didn't want to be touching the steering wheel of a car that, moments earlier, had been handled by this gross individual, said, in more words and with more tack, 'I don't think so...'. So they informed me that a jeep should be returning momentarily, and I could have that. I said great, and sat down and waited. The jeep arrived, and let me say, this thing is HUGE. It's a Jeep Commander, which I have called "Zap", after the character from Futurama, because I feel it fits. Anyway, I love the thing, but it eats gas like mad, so it's not going to work for me in the long run. Seeing as how I needed to get back for rehearsal, having already spent too much time to be able to make it back to vote... I had to put gas in this monster, $10 worth, because it was under a quarter of a tank. This was after I spent $28 yesterday to fill up the other car because I thought I'd have it for another week. I'm a bit pissed about that....
