Today I had to move a hospital appointment in favour of having work done on the car.  Sounds crazy I know.

The problem is that my car has a cracked windscreen.  That in itself isn’t a huge issue but, in a little over a week, the MOT falls due.  A cracked windscreen is an instant MOT failure.  So, I have to get the windscreen replaced.

Without a car I can’t get to work.  If I can’t get to work I don’t have a job.  Without a job I don’t have an income….. you know where this is going.  So, I’ve actually had to make the conscious decision to cancel a hospital appointment in favour of getting my car fixed.

Financial survival above actual survival? That’s the modern way.
