Friday night we had the CHAMPIONSHIP BASKETBALL GAME! ...and we lost. Since we were the team from the winner's bracket that meant we played again Saturday morning. This is when we made up for it, we didn't make up for it well, but we in the end, the right team won. We beat the other team by 6 points. I only had two bruised knee caps, a cracked chest, a slight concussion, and I'm happy to report, very little blood shed. I have decided that I can't shoot, and defense is
Maybe next year we'll get real shirts so Arthur will stop saying we look like we just went to a yard sale.
The car is back. I got him (p.s. his name is Stewie) to the dealership on Monday morning...where they told me that the crank position sensors were not what was recalled, rather it was oil consumption. Oil consumption? So they checked that, meaning that they did an oil change, meaning all that money I put into an oil change they undid. I had a nice, week old filter in there, I had synthetic oil, who knows what they put in. The crank position sensors cost me an additional...over $300. Okay, scratch that, the sensors cost an additional $150 or so...and the rest was labor...oh and $5 tax. The part that bug was when he told me my total he said, "It will be about $300, well, $360 with tax." Yeah, I can see where that tax made the price jump.
So the sensor apparently, from my understanding, stop working because oil gets in them. So if the recall was on oil consumption and oil got into my sensors...wouldn't that be covered? If I had more moxie I would have asked it right then and there. New goal - learn enough about cares to tell when someone is trying to pull one over on me. There is a special place for people who act so kind and caring but are really lying underneath it all...he may not have been, but I'm just saying.
So the guy brings my car around and says it runs like a new car and without thinking I say, "It'd better!" He doesn't know how much time and money has already gone in to it. But it does run like a new car, I had no idea that the tires could make such a different too, the speed bump at work...really just a bump. Didn't feel like that before, felt like I was off roading in Idaho.
Okay that is all. I promise, no more talk about Stewie. It's over and done with.
