Being hustled by a mechanic initially was told $250 for a tune up and fixing Check engine light. Now $300. If any problem I won't hesitate to bring it back until it's fixed .

What Grinds Your Gears?

Flash flood watch started at 7 this morning and ends at 7 Wednesday night. Warning starts in a few hours. Looks like the cars won't get out for a while.


Only the rocks last forever.

Deposited the money, in my bank account, for the wheels I want. When I got on the site to purchase them, through PayPal, I find out I put the money in the wrong account. Plus, I forgot to factor in shipping/tax costs. Not a very good day. Which I get everything fixed tomorrow and deposit some more money for shipping and tax.

Not a pleasant experience. It annoys me that I wasted about 30 mins, of the teller's and my time, getting the money transferred from my other accounts and deposits. I'll try again tomorrow. And I made a boo boo, I told my mom about it before I bought them. She wasn't real keen on the idea of dumping that much money for wheels.

Not for a while. I wasn't planning on buying wheels for another 2 years but these came up and I was saving over a grand. So I said duck it, I'm getting them now. Plus I have something I want to do to them before they go on. Which that's after I get the tires.

Wheels aren't in production anymore. And every supplier I've talked to say they have X amount and when they're gone no more.

That's at least what I've been told and read on websites. And it's not getting on the track, until the brake upgrades.

People that get hooked on Crack or Meth... Just randomly thinking about it and I ask myself "how the f'ck do you get hooked?"

For those that say they were trying it for the first time, what success story have you seen or read about that makes you even wanna "try" it? ....

People who put their blinker on then change lanes without looking because they assume there was room thanks to their blinker.

I'm on one tonight ... watching investigation discovery channel and of the stories baffle me. Sadly to hear why people have fallen victim to these horrendous crimes, but how dumb fck the people are that commit these crimes.

I seriously would want to fry these people on sight no judge nor jury needed... just pathetic what people are willing to do for the stupidest things that isn't worth someone's life.

Gotta keep that stuff on hand, man! Only ever NEEDED to buy it once, but ever since I keep one in the medicine cabinet. Replace before it expires. $50 is cheaper than a kid.

I gave it once to an ex gf, it's horrible it has so many side affects it can even prevent birth in the future. I work at a pharmacy so we sell those like crazy. ( it wouldn't look right me buying a birth control pill in front of my co workers ) lol. Especially my manger.

I use to work in a pharmacy as well as a tech. The poll was still behind in the pharmacy when I worked, everyone was always so hesitant to come and ask. Sometimes when I rang it up and told them the price, they would be like, oh, I don't have that much, never mind. Haha.

Reason I said it is he's from Quebec, so he might not speak English well. Since its mostly French.

Quebec isn't really part of Canada --it's like our New Jersey or the southern states.
