About a year ago, I bought a new car. I would often use the car to go to work, getdinner or for recreation. About a month ago, it began to make an odd beepingsound, become difficult to start and the word FUSE lit up on the dashboard. Thenext morning, I found the car dead in my driveway on my way to work. Sincethis meant I would be late to work, I worked quickly to find alternativetransportation and a tow truck as well as contact the dealership but the processtook a while. Being that the car was still very new, I was extremely upset aboutthe events that transpired. A few days later, I got the car back from the dealershipbut the word FUSE was still lit on the dashboard. I figured that since thedealership saw this, it must not be a cause for concern and I ignored it. Two dayslater, the beeping started again and upon hearing it, my blood pressure started torise. Later that day, I found my car dead in the parking lot at work which mademe pretty upset. I was able to quickly contact the dealership and a tow truck aswell as find alternative transportation. Eventually, I got the car back from thedealership and when the odd beeping began, I immediately drove the car to thedealership for repair. While I was mildly upset about this, it was mostly becauseof the inconvenience it caused. I currently am driving the car again, but amlistening for beeps and difficulty when I start it. And, while I love my car, I hateall the repairs and must decide to either not get another Audi or assume anothercar would not have the same problems.2. Jack and Jill met getting on a roller coaster. When they got off, he asked her outand Jill accepted. In the beginning, every time Jack picked Jill up for their date hehad flowers, chocolates or a card. He showered her in praise and made her feel sospecial that she barely noticed when he started bring her presents less frequently.She still continued to be happy anytime she was around… even when friendsbrought up his name, she became happy and knew she had fallen in love. Most ofher friends could not understand it, however, because Jack was often aggressivetoward Jill. Eventually, they break up and Jill has a horrible time adjusting. Shefeels tired, depressed and lonely and begins to text/call Jack each night.Sometimes he text/calls her back, but not usually, so she continues calling/textingeach night until he finally stops texting her at all for weeks. Eventually, Jillmeets Bob and they get married and have a child. Jill and Bob argued overwhether Jill should be a Stay-at-home mom or keep working and take Bob Jr. to adaycare. After a few years of daycare Jr. seems to be comfortable with strangersand loves his parents very much.3. Jane has been trying to loose weight since she can remember. She’s always feltthat fat people were lazy, but now she is overweight and she knows she is notlazy. All of her friends are thin and Jane tries to look like her favorite Hollywoodstars. She’s tried all the latest diets and when her friends would tell her she waslooking thin it definitely kept her dieting. While at the grocery store, there arealways multiple options available for her to buy, healthy and not healthy. Moneysometimes plays a role in what she chooses to buy since she does not make muchat her job and healthy food is more expensive. She is often convinced to buy unhealthy food simply because it says ‘Low Sodium’ or ‘Low Fat’ even though thefat or sodium content is still relatively high. Jane has decided to start putting starson a chart on the days she goes to the gym. Jane loves shoes and make a rule thatonce she has 10 stars she can buy a new pair of shoes. While at the gym, Janegets a lot of benefit (high calories burned/sculpting her body) from the elliptical.One day when she goes into the gym, this machine is taken so she had to get onthe treadmill. She finds that she gets as much benefit from this machine andbegins to split her time between the elliptical and treadmill (and occasionally willuse the stationary bike if the other two options have lines waiting). Eventually,Jane stops going to the gym but keeps buying shoes anyway. When she starts upthe 10 stars = pair of shoes chart again, its highly ineffective but she can notunderstand why…
