It’s been a while since a deliberate behaviour experiment has been undertaken, and this time it isn’t even balloon related! My friend noticed earlier a burning smell at certain times when I was driving (tbf I had also noticed it a few times but total car newb here) and mentioned it could be the clutch.
Cue panic, berating myself.over my terrible driving style which is clearly the reason (note: It’s NOT although there are aspects of my driving which need work) and a phone call to the local Toyota garage.
For the pleasure of paying £65, a mechanic will look at the car in attempt to diagnose any faults. If it is the clutch, then we can say goodbye to another £600 on top of that, 2 days before Christmas 🎄 . Merry wallet hole-burning!
And as we are expecting a delivery tomorrow, I have to go on my own. In a potentially breaking car 🚗. Through town traffic. To somewhere new. Aaaaaaaaaaaargh!
I put out a plea on social media for either a companion on my journey, or someone to sit with the smalls in my house for an hour whilst husband and I went.
Nobody answered the call, therefore I am going to use the opportunity for a behaviour Experiment!
My hypothesis is that the car will break, I will get lost, panic or otherwise make a fool of myself or do something wrong.
Otherwise, I could just drive to the place, drop my car off and have a lovely powerwalk back home 🏡.
Current feeling is 85 out of 100 on the anxiety scale. Will know more tomorrow!
