We have all been there. Getting ready for another day at work with everything ready to go and the day planned out.
You’re in your car, key in the ignition but as soon as you turn on the car, a light catches your eye. A new light that usually turns off immediately after a few seconds suddenly stays ON.
You ask yourself: Is this something serious or is it just some glitch in the system that will sort itself out?
So you do what most people do. You continue on with your day as if nothing had changed. Those initial plans are still on and you are on your way.
As you continue to drive, though, your car begins to sputter and eventually shuts off. You start to smell and see white smoke billowing from under the engine. Your heart sinks and that possibility of it being serious has become reality.
Your car is in trouble…
You are in trouble and now so is your wallet.
Maybe if you would have just taken a minute to think about what that light had meant before deciding to ignore it this embarrassing situation could have been avoided.
Don’t let this happen to you.
Be prepared and get educated on what different dashboard warning lights mean so that when you see one, you are both ready and able to make a smart decision. It will only take you a few minutes.
