Today I had to go in and order a replacement key from the dealer for my '04. It might address a few electronic issues the car is having (i.e. auto door locks – batteries weren’t replaceable in these fobs) but it’s pretty much a $250 “no fun” necessity. I can live with certain stuff not being automated, but the bad key may be affecting the ignition function.
Another no fun purchase this year was a $600 gas line replacement for the fireplace, though the heat is nice. However, my BFF may have made the least fun money layout of the year: $8,600 to have garage concrete removed, a leaking water pipe replaced, then cemented over. Ugh.
What have your Year of Our Lord 2018 “not fun” car/house/etc expenses been?
