trying to be zen

This whole car drama has been going on for 4 days now. It was really heavy and oppressive on Sunday in the dealership, mainly because I hate cars and I always feel like I'm getting screwed when I do anything involving cars. It's gotten worse each day since. Everyone there was so nice to us and set us at ease originally. They assured as that despite the finance not being resolved yet (due to IT issues) it would all be resolved the next day and our car would be delivered on Monday. We made plans around it, which we had to cancel when no car arrived. Each day since we've been told the same thing. In the morning it will happen today, in the afternoon it will happen tomorrow. The one guy who told me he'd get it sorted on Tuesday then hasn't been in the office since. At least I don't think so, each time I try to call him I get told different things, he's on the phone, an hour later he hasn't been in all day.
What I really should do is forget all about it and just wait to see what happens. Pretend there is no car, then when the car arrives it will be a pleasant surprise. If the car arrives. I'm usually the one telling bastardang not to stress out about things. It frustrates me that my car is just sitting there at the dealership, waiting to be delivered and I can't use it when I really need it because certain people aren't typing in the right boxes or signing the right forms. I hate knowing that if I don't keep chasing this, it could go on for weeks. This is compounded by how much I wish I didn't need this stupid car and how I'm proving right all those people who told me how I'd have to get a car once I had a child.
OK, fuck it. There's no car, there never was a car, there'll never be a car. None of this matters.
