What is large, Java Black naturally aspirated and weighed 5,512 lbs ….

it’s actually my 2007 Range Rover sport

my sweet “Jennifer Tilley” is sitting idly by as it is awaiting a new set of key transmitters

Short scenario (mind you the vehicle was brought into the dealership because Progressive chose to schedule my insurance adjuster appointment at that dealership because of Covid they were not doing house visits our location visit Surf or I had to meet at an assigned location),

I took my 2007 LR Sport HSE, into a dealership to have the insurance adjuster do a adjustment on a little fender bender or in this case the active suspension, Driver side rear wheel and rear lower fender area had damage along with rear bumper. Claims adjuster would only count for the real one shock a bumper and a repainting of the driver side rear lower fender panel.

Adjuster stated that they could not include any of this suspension items because the service department warranted that my vehicle needed these items due to the age of the vehicle not due to the accident.

Dealership quoted me $12,000 for the suspension and that it would be out of my own pocket

I stayed up until the accident my vehicle is working just fine went to go pick up a pizza and an Uber driver backed into my vehicle while it was parked deeming my vehicle stuck in the low access mode

Due to the suspension being stuck in Acess mode I had it towed into the dealership for this process and then towed home.

When the dealership was done with the vehicle they brought it up to the portico vehicle was running I took the vehicle parked it up front left it running called the tow truck company, I pulled a vehicle around to the side where the tow truck company could then load the vehicle.

The Tow truck operator place the vehicle neutral placed it up on the flatbed. Tow truck driver turn the vehicle off. Flatbed truck arrived at my driveway, check operator place vehicle in neutral rolled off my vehicle into my carport. A bit off centered but hey what it was back home safe.

When I retrieve the keys out of my vehicle I noticed that the fob is in two pieces and the reason why it was together was because it was hooked on the key ring. Attractive circuit board was not in the (KFT), key Fob transmitter; as to the reason why the driver was unable to turn on the vehicle and parked straightaway in my driveway.

Contacted dealership they had no idea what to place did not own up to the fact that the key fob was taken apart by one of their employees. After several visits several go rounds in several tow truck drop offs to their dealership and back four to be exact which means eight tow truck trips in total I am still in the same position of not having a set of keys for this vehicle is basically a giant paperweight at this point.

Does shorten the go around on this I’ve gone through all kinds of different message to figure out how in the world I’m gonna get a set of keys for this vehicle the most obvious of course was going through the dealership dealership would not get me a set of fobs finally when they did they gave me a used fob that had been assigned to another VIN number.

The GM of the store and unknowing how to spell his last name I will just call him by his first name Bruce; he stated that the fob was just fine, it had not been synced to any-one vehicle; at this point that I was to remove the existing blade from the fob, which belong to the other vehicle.

Which leads me to this post. Needless to say the fob did not sync with my vehicle causing my vehicle to go in total lockdown and now I am unable to have a set of keys for my vehicle now the dealership says I need a new CJB along with two new fobs and I am responsible for paying for this really should I have to pay for this mistake?

I stated to the general manager that this mistake was on them.

I live in Sarasota Florida

I realize there are other Land Rover dealerships that I may be able to deal with but I also know that dealerships tend to stick together when it comes to service and not wanting to work on somebody else’s mess up any input please

I saw you today

I saw you today

I saw you today
It took me a monument
to realize it was you

Fresh as
If it was my first hello
Smooth
As water on a slip’n slide

I was back there
The days of
Simplicity and quiet gazes

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I’m enamored
by your ability to hold me
Without ever reaching out

Yet;
Saddened by your ability
to set fire to a room
You never intended
To be in

You never owned your
Dysfunction,
you collected glitter
and wore it as
your charmed life,
rolled though me
Like a hurricane party
on nitro

You know
One day
You would be
Standing
In the place, that space
Only you would fill
Only you could fill

That day came
It was here
Before us
Playing out
Like it did
In my mind

No disappointment
No resentment
Oddly
It was joy

I saw you today,

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I saw you, today.

Situational empathy

How do say I understand?,

I lived a privilege life

Born of an unknown woman

Raised Another, of Jewish Faith

and a passive Protestant  father

Given much

Yet the feeling of emptiness

and loss is prevalent

and knowing that lived

on borrowed time,

Left me with survivors guilt

and sarcasm scribbled in bits n bytes

viewed by thirty thousand minds

Whose thoughts were in-kind

Nothing vague left

between the lines

The words in times

They will be found

And once read

Will open the mind

To know

I as well as you

Have lived a life

Of similarity

Just in different Hues

Varied expectations

Dreams short of breathe

Overwhelming Reality

Ever looming questions

Of why, and if

Purpose and contentment

Will ever agree enough

To leave me at peace

With

Not being more

Proactive toward

The injustice

All because

It’s hard for

You to think

I can not understand

As I am not you

I am me

Endlessly

mis-understood

Most of all

Human

How do say I understand

I lived a privilege life

Born of an unknown mother

Raised by a Jewish Mother

Abandoned by a passive-emotion void father

Replace by excess

Yet the feeling of emptiness

and loss prevalent

and knowing that

living on borrowed time,

Left me with survivors guilt

and sarcasm scribbled in bits n bytes

viewed by thirty thousand minds

Whose thoughts were in-kind

Nothing vague left

between the lines

The words in times

They will be found

And once read

Will open the mind

To know

I as well as you

Have lived a life

Of similarity

Just in different Hues

Varied expectations

Dreams short of breathe

Overwhelming Reality

Ever looming questions

Of why, and if

Purpose and contentment

Will ever agree enough

To leave me at peace

With

Not being more

Proactive toward

The injustice

All because

It’s hard for

You to think

I can not understand

As I am not you

I am me

Endlessly

mis-understood

Most of all

Another day I did not use algebra

….because,

some words, are harmful.
some words, are peaceful
some words, are unheard

these word must be read.

somedays are longer that others. the length of time is relative only to the minds in ability the release the unattainable love we seek.

we are awashed in stories,

tell us words that seek

….approval, not by a long shot.

somewhere in our human existence we equate approval with love.

the very definition of the word only leaves a yes or no outcome. no algebra needed.

just a clear bright sky to be there when the soul decides to offer up the ever elusive reasons for why it held out so long.

the x equals A. the y equals B and the total sums equals u

Sitting in the front seat, yet, Worlds apart

I can own my words
Own my world
Move about in yours
Live daily
One thought
At a time

You can accept my words
Live in my world
You Move about
As if
You truly knew me
One daily thought at a time
Just enough
Just getting by

I can own my words
Own my world
Move about in yours
Live daily
One thought
At a time

No more yesterday’s
Will I throw away
No more
Because
I Can’t own my words
Can’t live in my world
…. Knowing you can’t own yours
Your words
Your world
No more time
Can I waste

I’ll be fine
Don’t spend the dime
Unless you can
Own your words

To be continued

Town

How did I get here
What precipitated this reality
Can
I see it
Feel it
Touch it
Will I recognize it
Would I understand it

What was it
That got me this far
Only to fall
To trip
Throw out
My conscience
Living against the wind
Standing still
As the tide rolls in

I will not chase it
I cannot embrace it
Would I leave it
Now that it’s here before me

Left
still
Unanswered
And alone
Walk Till the moonlight fades
into daylight

Left in
Darkness
Awakened by the known
who stands before me

This town
My town
Changed me, yes it has

Breathe in
Breathe out
Live
Embrace
Accept the given
Nurture the known

How Did i get here
Is it because
I’ve grown
Into it
Or it grown into me
This town I call home

Obstacles

There are days
when I can see clear, far and everything fits in side this simple bag. When I question why the items on my list are not conforming to the items that you say equals bliss.

I realize how much I am everything but nothing that will save you from yourself, given everything you think you deserve.

I will leave you with the thought of what you think is enough to get you by, only to find out I’m the everything that your looking for.

Too bad you closed that door.

Sunday

Suspended by the inability to be the one u want to be when the day goes by so quickly that the movement of motion doesn’t even make a ripple in the sea of banality.

Known reality that you can’t see beyond the statements made up of letters forming a label that confines you to a future you never would’ve chosen had you not chosen anything but me.

Who am I to say to you the choices you make now will change the dynamics of everything you thought you would be verses who you have become.

one day, never came

one day never came
 
it seems anything that resemble you take my breathe away,
one day I’ll be out of breathe and out of time,
one day I’ll be looking for you looking for me.
Maybe someday one day will enough the bring you here
same place same time 
 
 
any trace of you
brings me closer to a place
place I should have been all along
wondering why I left
why I chose to flee
wishing I was anyone but me
 
 
one day I’ll be out of breathe and out of time,
one day I’ll be looking for you looking for me.
Maybe someday one day will enough to bring you here
same place same time 
 
 
cut my losses,
move on down the line
do I hold you close or let you go
one day i’d know
the letting go
was my highest low
 
 
one day I’ll be out of breathe and out of time,
one day I’ll be looking for you looking for me.
Maybe someday one day will enough the bring you here
same place same time
