i get up at 6 am,its raining. i pack all my junk into JR for a fun ride into work.my wifey is up with my son cuz she delivers the TRADER TIMES,truck,auto,cycle,etc.she does it for extra loot while she is in school.(heaven forbid she touches the tens of thousands she has in the bank! her mothers house sold and she got her share. she just bought a new focus with cash.BUT i have to still give her gas money??WAIT thats another post). anyway she calls me at 9 am and tells me the tierod end broke on her van. so i gotta leave work to go see. mind you i'm in JR no tools or nothing.so i get there and the end you adjust is completely unthreaded. so i take her home and grab the DD and a floor jack to fix it.we drive 26 miles back to the van and the end won't tighten on .so we go to the only auto parts store i trust in the ghetto and get a new end. then back to where i work to get a hammer.i jack the van up and see that the nut is on the bottom. a whole six inches to swing the hammer. after a few pissed off blows of said hammer it poped out.got it fixed in heavy rain and got that POS home. so i put 94 miles on my trucks and have to take a vacation day for the lost hours.yes sir i knew i shoulda stayed home.
