I only have rants today. Why does going to a dealer service dept have to be a negative experience? I thought I could trust them with a simple fluid top-off (and have them clear my airbag error since I didn't d/c battery cable when unplugging env controls), but noooo.

Rant: drop off car at dlr saying "would you please top off these fluids for me, I spilled a slight amount during maintenance, and I'm on my way to Orlando ... rear diff, transmission, and go ahead and check angle gear oil but I haven't seen any leaks there, its just tranny fluid I definitely leaked while doing CV axles" Then calling dealer 4 hours later and they haven't even put it on the rack yet. Then they call me an hour later and say "have you SEEN this car? there are leaks! my guys dont even want to TOUCH it!" Then proceeding to tell me there's diff fluid leak, and leaks around transmission .. LEAKS ALL OVER ... has someone been putting AFTERMARKET PARTS on this car?"

Mmmm Troeg's Sunshine Pils....


Ummrants:

At work on a beautiful day. No one is here at this point. It's absolutely dead and there's nothing to do. Of course my director is still here though.
Birds decided to either eat berries, or **** berries on my hood and it may not get rained on tonight.

Raves:

Going to this place called the Mead Hall in Cambridge for the second Friday. 110 beers on tap. The "biggest" brewery they carry is Sam Adams, and even then it's their Norse Legend(rare and tasty)

Drinking: Water, gotta make sure I'm 100% hydrated for this evening.

RANTS: -Slave started leaking (albeit very slow) and since the terms of my leaving a certain indy were not great, I don't have access to a lift anymore. SOOOOO I actually have to pay someone to do my slave/clutch. I'm not silly enough to lay on my back and rest that thing on my face to save $. Just not safe.
- 105dg around Boston today so car was a slug from stand-still, and apparently everyones brain melted and dribbled out their a** cause it was bumper to bumper all day around here. FOR NO REASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
RAVES: I've got a wonderful family, and a pool to swim in. I also own a 6MT VR with Atacama. :)

Late, but:

Rants:
I'm in Greenville, SC for my college orientation, and I didn't have time to clean the R, so it's absolutely disgusting.

Raves:
I really like this town and this school! Also, I was amused when the hotel parking guy couldn't figure out how to start it.

Listening to: A random electro house mix
