The honeymoon is over...
WK2 is in the shop. ESC light was randomly coming on, code showed the problem was in ABS system. Turns out, that someone in the past had put in the wrong type of fluid (possibly not even brake fluid!) Long story, short= now I need a new master cylinder/brake booster.
And of course, it's not covered by the 2-year powertrain warranty I had them throw in when I bought it.
Everything is being documented and I'll be visiting the dealership where I purchased it.....Won't do any good, but at least I can give them a piece of my mind...
New parts are 3 days out...Hopefully I'll have it back by the end of the week. In the meantime, my loaner is a full sized, quad cab 4x4 Ram....the thing is like driving an aircraft carrier
So I take my wife out to dinner. As soon as the appetizers arrive in comes a couple with a two-year-old. The kid then starts letting out random shrieks every 30-90 seconds. To appease the brat, jerk parents set their phone up on the table and turn on some idiotic kids program. (If you thought Barney was bad back in the day, be glad you don't have kids now.) Just so you know, we're not talking UpChuck E. Cheese here, but an actual "grownup" establishment. Is it too much to ask that you get a babysitter and leave the kid at home? We're talking 9 PM on a Sunday night, too, so the stinking kid was probably squawking because it was past his bedtime. I rarely go out anymore. I bought a big-ass TV and watch movies from my couch. I have a nice grill out on my deck. Crap like this is why I just stay the heck at home. Wish I had tonight.
That ticks me off like nothing else. If you insist on dragging your disobedient, horrible child out in public and then using your phone or tablet to appease them, get them headphones. No one else wants to listen to that shit, either what's on the device or what's coming out of the brat's mouth.
Friendly's, or UpChuck E. Cheese, I get it. I don't go to either place - on purpose. If I go out to a nice dinner that's going to cost me a few bucks, I expect a decent, quiet environment. Kid screams or shrieks, I'm leaving. And not paying, either.
People that litter should be hung by their private parts in the village square
The Chinese are invading
Ya with lots of SPAM lately. Thanks to all members which have reported the spammers!
Crazy amount of spam. All gone for now.
Put two items up on Craigslist. Started getting responses for both within an hour. This is easy!, I thought to myself.
Then the typical seal-the-deal arrangements go like this:
Buyer: I'll be there Wednesday afternoon
Me: Cool, see you then.
Buyer: Something came up. I'll be there Thursday afternoon
Me: Cool, see you then.
Buyer: Something came up. I'll be there Friday afternoon
Me: Cool, see you then.
Buyer: Something came up. I'll be there Saturday afternoon
Me: Just stinking forget about it.
In the meantime, I have other people asking if it is still available. New policy: First one up my driveway with cash in hand gets it. No more saving anything for anyone.
Can someone ban this CCplait idiot? I got ten thread updates today. Boy, maybe things are picking up, I thought! All some kind of Russian spam.
Went to new posts. 26 out of the first 27 were from the same jerk.
This forum is becoming unusable...
Never save anything and never wait for anyone.
If they want to stop by and we set a time we can agree with , I’ll tell them text to me when your there. No text - no wasting my time.
Btw I always meet at the tops parking lot couple blocks away from home.
Really helps screen out the losers
I reported that guy and the new asian spammer earlier today, just have to wait for a staff member to show up
The two items I was selling were both made out of cast or wrought iron. I'll keep your idea in mind for future sales, though.
Sorry I was tied up in a flight, but I'm back & took care of both CCplait & asdfchen09, they wont be bothering anyone anymore..
"Tied up in a flight"? Is that what you young people are calling drinking heavily these days?
Must have had a brain fart while posting - I never finished my thought haha
What I was going to add was , if you are at home and they respond back “hey im here I don’t see you” that’s your cue to say “yea just stuck at a light be there in sec”
Then you leave the house and drive a couple blocks
I have my motorcycle for sale.
Lots of "really interested" buyers; but not many responses past the first volley.
Had a guy actually stop last week. I told him several times on the phone, "no test rides unless I have the cash in hand."
"That's cool, makes sense," he responds.
He shows up, checks out the bike, asks me to start it, yada, yada.
"Can I take it for a quick spin," he asks.
"Let me see your license,, do you have the cash?" I reply.
He says he doesn't have his license with him and 'forgot' to bring the money. And then gets livid because I wasted HIS time.
I told him to try a tricycle first and when he grows up he can be a real biker.
The phrase didn't help his mood, but it greatly improved mine
