well today was a eventful day .. I woke up early went to make breakfast no eggs, well I'll just have some toast and a glass of milk. I put the bread in the toaster the phone rings I go answer it my mother is on the phone and needs me to drop in and fix the garage door opener it jammed up , no big deal till the smoke alarm goes off my toast is burnt...
so I say screw it I go to get a glass of milk my kid left the container in the fridge EMPTY so me nor the ol'lady knew we were out ...Well I go to my moms fix her garage door opener no problem.
Well I still have time to kill because my mom made me a bite to eat while I was fixing her door. I decide I'm going to the dealership to look at a new truck. I go in look at a 2008 F250 4x4 diesel loaded leather moon roof 4 door
the sales man asks if I will be trading my truck in I say no.. He then goes and looks at it anyway and asks what year it is I tell him a 99 he says he would be happy to take it on trade because good trucks are hard to come by and with the long bed construction guys are always looking for this type of truck .. I tell him I dont want to trade in as its a great truck and I have plans for it.. So off I go the first time in a 2008 I like it, ride is very smooth, power is real nice for a stock truck, so I'm thinking ya I could get use to driving this ..
After I get back from my test drive we crunch a few numbers and talk for a while about business and our families and what we are planning on for vacations this summer (I know the sales guy I do all the towing for the dealership and am some what friends with him).. then I tell him I'll be back with the wife and let her drive it too and see if she likes it as well..
I jump in my old reliable 99 that I just got done telling the salesman it is a great truck and that's another reason I wanna keep it..
I hit the key CLICK! again CLICK! hummm CLICK ..OK now I feel like a tool I jump out tap the starter... CLICK I get out tap it a few times a little harder CLICK ....
I then look over and Scott (the sales man ) is standing there with a some what grin on his face ...I give the starter one more good whack ... off comes part of the solenoid
I then look at Scott and say .. "hey wanna give me a ride to the shop so I can get my roll off and come pick up my reliable truck?" we both laugh he drives me to the shop about 10 mins away, get the roll off tow it home and realize that top starter bolt is a PITA to get at ... But its running again like a charm ... I think it thought I was trading it in
so how was your day
