Green

Feeling lucky (209.2)

I'm at Autoworks to get my annual NYS inspection. With a two-year-old, leased car, I can be pretty confident it will pass, and if not, it's not my problem to bring it back in spec. The poor lady in front of me, though, was actually crying at the guy at the desk. Her driver's side door burst into flame when she was driving, thanks to a short in the door wiring. They don't know yet how much it'll cost to fix, and she says she just sent off all her bills for the month and has barely enough left for food.
