I was too nice.
I had a car to pick up today from a guy that I have gotten several other from. They guy is twitchy. I mean like he is high on something. I don't know if he is, or if he is just a person who cannot be still.
I told him last night I would call him today to get the address. He called me at about 11 and said to be there at 330.He didn't have an address but he told me about where it was and I knew the area. Not much out there
We left here at 245 because I thought it was further away than it was. I called him and he said he was trying to get an air tank because it had flat tires. I told him I would go back home and get mine.
SO we did. I was back there at 345.
We got the tires aired up and the guy was all over the car. It wasn't even his car. IT belonged to his friend, who was standing there like a lost cat. One of the air tanks would not work on the tire. I could fill the other tank up with it when it was empty. I think it needs a new end on it.
We got the tires aired up and then pulled it around front with BettyBlue.
While Steph did the paperwork the guy was ll over the car again. I had already paid for it so I told him it wasn't his to crawl through. I said it nicely. He said he was trying to see if it had a spare ( which would not have been in the glovebox). I told him if a tire went flat I would drag it home on the rim.
I was hurting pretty bad. My back wasn't happy at all.
Steph tried to hook the winch to something ,but it would not hold. Then guy jumped over and started trying to hook it to everything, I was going to wrap the cable around the radiator and bumper, but he insisted that it had to be hooked on whatever he was looking at.
I couldn't bend over to see what it was, and I just wanted to leave. I tried to pull. It slipped. When it did it jammed the cable up in the cross member of the car. I pulled it on up knowing it wasn't coming back out. Then he was trying to snatch the cable out. I told him it could sit there till I got home and could take two bolts out to let it come out without chewing up the cable. He kept saying he could get it out. I kept trying to tell him nicely that it would mess up my cable. He kept saying he would get a hammer. I finally had to get firm with him. I think it scared him a bit. But he left it alone.
I ran out some slack so it wouldn't be binding up any more and we left. I was exhausted from just 20 minutes with him.
We had no problems getting home.
Steph had to tutor tonight so we unhooked the tow dolly and set the winch on top of the car. I figured I would deal with it tomorrow.
After we ate she left to tutor. About 20 minutes later she called and said the clutch on BettyBlue went out finally. It has only been bad for over a year now. I am a bit amazed it lasted this long.
She is having AAA tow it to Tim's house. We will put it up on his lift tomorrow and fix it. It shouldn't be too bad I hope.
