One day, one day, I will have a car that’s reasonably new and functioning. Old, raggedy cars don’t just break–they decay in weird, unexpected ways that you can’t do jack about. I went to get out of my car today and the door stuck about halfway. It looks like the body panel just in front of the door has shifted somehow and is blocking the hinge from opening completely. I can still get in and out, but it’s a tight it. Maybe, if I’m very lucky, this is a temporary problem caused by snow and ice buildup shifting that panel. If not, there’s nothing I can do about it anyway–I certainly can’t afford any bodywork right now. All I can do is hope it doesn’t get worse, adapt, and keep an eye on it to make sure my damn door doesn’t fall off..
