CONNECTIONS: Make sure to listen for the warning signs

May 4, 2013

Oh, great. Now I’ve really done it.
I sat disgusted in the middle of the hospital parking lot, not sure what to do next.
Although the grinding noise in the rear brakes of my car had been growing increasingly louder over the previous several weeks, I kept shoving it to the back of my mind.
Maybe the problem would miraculously heal itself. After all, I was a young college student and did not have the money for a mechanic.
Every time I slid in behind the wheel of my Ford Escort wagon I prayed that I would somehow make it to my destination.
