sometimes something goes a little out of whack though. this time it was the exhaust pipe. i was driving home from work and started to hear scraping on the road- that's never a good thing... i pulled off on a side street and took a look at it. yup, the exhaust pipe broke off from the engine and was hanging down. i was a bit worried, so i did what i always do when i have a car question- i called aaron! he was kind enough to walk me through the issue and come up with a solution. he asked if i had a duct tape to fix it temporarily so it didn't break off completely. miraculously i did! there was a little roll in the emergency kit in the trunk! lucky me! i taped it up and it held the rest of the trip. i set up a time later in the week to have aaron take a look at it (cause he is an amazing friend). i made it almost all the way to his house that day with the duct tape still holding- about a mile from his house the pipe gave out and started dragging again! i got my fair share of looks from the pedestrians on the side of the road...
i made it there and aaron worked his magic- he actually had an extra tail pipe that he cut a section off of and made it work on what was left of mine. i was truly amazed- he fixed the whole thing and somehow we didn't even have to go to the car parts place!
