Shields Up!

Driving into work today, I get this warning light on the dash.

I’ve never seen this light before, but they’re usually a picture of what’s wrong; such as a Gas pump if I’m low on
fuel, a oil can if I’m low on oil or an axe if there’s a killer in the back seat.
So what the hell does this mean?!
The first thing that popped into my head was that my shields were failing.
Fine, turn off the A/C and divert all power to shields.
Nope, light’s still on.
OK, possible spatial anomaly ahead?
Sure, I suppose. Could be like worm hole season or something?
No, that doesn’t make sense.
Too soon for wormhole season.
Could be that my tires are about to fall off?
Now that would really put my up shit’s creek. I mean, I only have the one spare!
Maybe it’s warning me that I’m expanding.
Thanks, yes, I’m fat but I don’t need the car to tell me that.
So I’m looking online for docs about warning lights and the like, and it seems that any info that VW has, they want to sell you.
Hateful greedy Germans.Turns out it was my brakes.
Yes, my front breaks were wearing thin.
Nice to know, however next time it would be better if they did something like this:
HEY DUMBASS, YOU’RE BREAKS ARE GOING!!!! GET THEM REPLACED!!!!I suppose it’s the same as shields.

    Thanx for the good laugh Bill! And good luck with the brakes – can’t imagine how much VW brakes cost to replace.
