Go to head to the inlaws for dinner this afternoon, and starter is dead. No biggie, I knew it was coming. I have had to bang on it a couple times. So I call around for the best price, including my store. I call pepboys, autozone, vip, and advanced auto. Only advanced auto carries it in stock. Everyone else is a special order. REALLY? Are you F#@$ing kidding me? Special order? WTF?
So I get one from advanced Auto, install and no workie. More of WTF? Pull it out, and bench test it. Yup, no workie. This started at 2, and three hours later, I have given up on dinner, given up on automotive parts chains. To special order a starter that should be in stock at every store in the land? WTF.
Rant over, I need a smoke!
