    Welllllll - that was fun.

    Wiper motor went out on my old truck so I took it into a garage to get it fixed. Figured while it was in there might as well let them change the oil instead of me crawling under it.

    Drive it out of the lot, go about half a mile and it seizes. They forgot one itty-bitty step in the oil change process. I think it's terminal.

    Wow. I guess they must be insured to pay for stuff like that, right?

    They just called and said they're gonna find another motor for it. Wonder if this one'll have 280,000 miles on it?

    Though I will say the engine on this was gonna run forever. I'm pretty religious about motor fluids/maintenance. An axle may break next week but the engine was great - still get the same gas mileage as when I bought it in 1990.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that forgetting to put oil back in a truck after an oil change is really not a good move for repeat business.

    Kind of like one of Bellisimo's girlfiends forgetting to take her pill on a Friday night.

    The next thing you know you got trucks blown up and chicks vomiting in the mornings.

    Where does it all end.

    Several years ago a "buddy" went into one of those quick change places in BLoomington for an oil change and a change in transmission fluids and filters. The next day the tranny siezed. Although he had paperwork proving his service records from day 1 (he bought it new) the Oil change place refused to help out. They told him they had no control over what he did to/with the car after it left their station and therefore he couldn't show their negligence. His lawyer agreed with them and he ended up paying the full freight himself.

    Nope, put the last of it down the outhouse about 50 years ago.

    I remember an old Alfred Hichcock Show episode where a farmer killed his wife, put her in the feed grinder along with corn, and fed her to the chickens.

    The irony was a police detective kept coming out to the farm to talk to the farmer about his missing wife. One day the cop showed up and the farmer invited him to Sunday dinner....fried chicken of course.

    How long would it take chickens to eat her?

    I would think he could have served hot dogs much quicker.
    Perhaps she was an overly petite woman.

    Depends on how much you want to pay - you can go from a paste-on (which won't pass close inspection) to a hot glue gun.

    They'd have had a tough time with this one - picked it up, drove down the road, went about 2 blocks, it seized and called 'em up.

    Plus I know a lot of people around here.

    You told them what a shame it would be if their shop blew up right.
