Okay, so recharging the AC just exacerbated the problem of my compressor being bad. By the time I got back home, there was some nice billowing smoke coming out of it. Parts to fix it would be $1100 plus that much again in labor.

So I'm having them disconnect it instead.

I think I'm going to get rid of this car soon.

That smoke is actually good luck. When you start seeing it you know you will soon be owning a new car! Or at least one thats new to you. What could be better?

Next car you get should be a pickup truck with the wheels all jacked up. That way you'll be able to go over speed bumps and park benches without problems.

just get a compressor at a junkyard and fix it yourself.

I did consider that. But it's way outside my realm of experience, and I don't wanna break my only car :/

mmm, exacerbate. Next most technically useful word to ameliorate.
