Woe is me...and my car

I went to the mall today to drop off an application (yes, I'm applying for part-time jobs, too, now) and when I pulled in the driveway I heard a weird sound. I listened. It seemed to be coming from my car. That's when I noticed green liquid spilling out from underneath my car all over the driveway. I pulled my hood and decided to take a look (yes, I even surprise myself sometimes). It was my antifreeze. I decided to take a closer look and took the cap off. (I managed to lose said cap - never to be seen again.) And I called my dad for some help. Finally the car cooled down and was almost empty of coolant so I added water and headed to the nearest garage. Long story short - it doesn't look good. And I need a job. Desperately.

Oh, no. I'm sorry. I hope it's something easily fixable, and I hope you get a job soon.

Gosh Amy. Why does it rain when it pours? I hope you find a great job soon. I also hope that your car can be fixed at a cheap, cheap price.

I'm sorry. Hugs.

Hey Amy. A similar thing happened to me when I had my old car. It was my radiator. I ended up with a new radiator, which was not that expensive. But I know it's a pain to spend money on getting a car fixed as it gets older. It seems never-ending. I have to get a new tire soon (yes...on my new car), because one of them is patched(because a nail was in it), and I don't wanna be driving with a patched tire during the winter. I'm dreading spending the money.
