Pluses and minuses of spending three and a half hours in the lobby of teh car dealership while waiting for a one and half hour service to finish (They had to wait for a part.):

Plus: Guilt-free time for writing, thinking, and reading.
Minus: Five Guys and a Burger is not a good place for a fat-intolerant person to each lunch...
