I just really need to vent right now and other peoples opinions are more than welcome on this.
My DH and I just spent $4000 on getting repairs done to our car, went and picked it up this morning and everything seemed fine with the car. My DH drove the car to work only 10 minutes away and still everything seemed fine. His car sits at work all day without being touched or moved etc. After work today he gets in the car drivess for 15minutes to find flames coming out from under the bonnet. The Battery was on fire, the insulation on the top of the inside of the bonnet was on fire, the battery brace was on fire. There was fire everywhere. My DH being mechanically minded put the fire out with some quick thinking and called me to let me know what had happened etc. My immediate response was fear and then anger. We had paid $4000 total on fixing the car, only to have a careless error made by them ruin it all. What would have happened if our 18month old daughter was in the car? Or my pregnant MIL?
My sister seems to think that I am over reacting by being angry and wanting to call and abuse the people tomorrow. My sister does not have any children by the way. So my question is Am I just over reacting, should I not call them tomorrow and am I being a Chopper Mum.
