    Dealt with this over the weekend, dealer must've used an impact to tighten the drain plug on my oil pan.
    Northland VW did the same with my mothers Touareg and then snapped off the wheel bolt when they tried to change back to the summer tires. They then had to replace the hub and it was all at her cost of course.

    They usually call you to investigate non picked up bins. They came out to get my recycling with a pickup one time when I complained.

    They call you to lecture you on putting the carts out in time.

    In my case it was to apologize profusely. But then again I am not in Aspen, they must get daily cart collection there?

    Really? When I call it's always "My driver says the bin wasn't out, and I trust his word".

    Meanwhile I have video evidence it was out the night before.

    People that husk corn in the store when there's signs not to do such - can you not read or can you not comprehend what you're reading or are you that self entitled or are you just plain stupid?

    You're paying by the ear so weight makes no difference plus you're making a big fucking mess plus you'll throw ears back onto the bin that you've husked and now don't like.

    Stores need to install a Monte Python laser system - husk just one ear a mind the laser lops off your non-dominant arm above the elbow but does it in such a way that you'll bleed out slowly unless you're smart enough to use your dominant arm to stem the bleeding. Keep husking and off goes your other arm. Keep husking with your feet and your legs go. Last appendage is the neck because that'll solve the problem for good.

    Fucking corn huskers.
    I totally agree with you and I don't do it myself.

    I see a lot of stores put a garbage bin beside the corn but don't remember ever seeing a sign that says not to husk.

    Why does every company need to make a statement on racism after an incident like they just discover racism? Where have you been? Should I update my Facebook profile with a picture of me and a black friend?

    For the same reason they made statement about covid.

    Money. The answer is always money.

    When someone asks you how you got a great deal on your home internet/tv/phone, so you explicitly tell them what they have to do, but then they do the exact opposite, and complain that there's no way you got such a good deal that way.

    google maps gives me routes between two locations that require easily 8" fording depth and some quality route-finding.

    Who is your deal with? I want to know your deal and see if it is good so I can ask how you got it

    You know I do. Although after some closer inspection on google earth, there may actually be a bridge where I thought creek fording was required. I guess I hadn't explored as much of that area as I thought. I wish I still had my old Expedition with the air suspension. That thing was amazing on logging roads. My current 3/4 ton is pretty punishing. I have updated that map.
