This is odd, but I don’t know who to ask! I have a minivan that my children have very slowly ripped to shreds. They are small, furless, feral animals that I love. But they are animals.
The other day, I noticed my gear shifter felt loose. A closer look revealed that the metal pole was slightly bent. Because my children are animals, and I was a mess before them, my brain is now completely gone so I thought, “maybe it was always loose. Maybe it was always bent.” The next day, the whole damn handle came off in my hand. Sigh.
Thing is, my kids are very little. Too little to bend even a utensil made of metal. But they have done some other damage so…The other thing is I have an automatic starter. The car can’t switch gears until the key is in the ignition. Is it possible someone tried to steal it? Do they do that? I wouldn’t be able to tell if someone jimmied the door since, well, it doesn’t close right after a certain incident.
Thank you in advance!!
