A Day Late

I seem to be running a day behind on my after-action reports here. I will try to do better.

Yesterday's annoying news arrived when I set out to go out to lunch with Gretchen: the driver's side seatbelt sensor in the van is not working correctly and believes that the seat belt is not fastened even when it clearly is. This, in and of itself, would not be a major problem.

The constant chiming of the bell to tell us that Gretchen is in imminent danger, however, is pretty much intolerable. Especially because it is lying. We did not go to lunch in the van, because I would have gone mad from the bells.

Unfortunately, this repair requires a trip to the dealership, which means it cannot be done until Tuesday, when they have time to look at it. In the meantime, Gretchen has discovered that you can sometimes get it to stop chiming by buckling up before starting the van.

And sometimes, you can't.

Ding, ding, ding.
