Time flies like a banana

[ #23247 ]

Time is nature's way to keep everything from happening all at once.
John Wheeler

No, Time is nature's way to keep everything wrong from happening all at once. And right now, nature needs some debugging. While waiting to hear from the Volkswagen dealer about whether they could get the part they needed to start fixing the car (toxic fumes out of the heater vents--it's what's for breakfast!), my cell phone took a dive into a puddle. After missing the train. While recovering from a mild flu.

They didn't have the part.

But later...

The VW dealer got the part and fixed the car under warranty, costing me a grand total of $5.21 to put gas in the rental car they sprang for. And the cellphone survived the dunking.

Sometimes time just gets things bunched up.
