Today starts the fifth week of Stella being at the Dealer to have her rear drive assembly fixed. Updates have been sporadic, calls not returned when promised, and questionable excuses have been offered. But, when you are the only Dealer within 350 miles you hold all the cards. The two best excuses are #2 the mechanic quit and took the special tool with him.
The #1 best excuse is the non reusable keeper is on back order and should be here in thee weeks. I told him to just put it together with the used keeper and call it good. That is when he used excuse #2. He called me Thursday morning and said the tool would be in Friday and he would call me back as soon as it came in. I’m still waiting.
Well, at least Petunia is back up and running. But, is being naughty and blew a fuse yesterday that I have to check out this morning.
At the end of this week I begin my next project. Because I just don’t know when to quit I purchased a fixer upper condo in the retirement area known as Sun City West. I close on the little gem Friday, the cabinets and granite are ordered, and I plan to start the demolition on Saturday.
I hope I'm not getting to old for all this fun!
