It needs to happen. The little sticker on my windshield says it needed to be done May 2nd and that was nearly three weeks ago. I could wait until I hit 157,500 kilometers, but I know I'm meant to bring it in for whichever comes sooner.
Why am I so bad at taking care of my car? I burst a tyre back in March and drove around on my spare for at least two weeks before I got it swapped. It took them half an hour and cost barely anything. It was easy, yet here we are procrastinating more car maintenance. I have to drive to Adelaide this weekend and, still, I haven't checked in to make sure my auto's fluids are topped up. My engine hates me, and my apologies mean nothing to it.
I know exactly where to take it, so that's not some hard choice I have to make, that fault is squarely on me. It's time to accept that I am not going to do it myself, so please book my car in to get serviced. It's an '04 Camry named Frank. This is not an abuse of my power.
