I definitely should have passed on NAPA. I had found the bearings online for a total of about $60, but I was impatient and decided to check out NAPA. I told the guy what I needed, he surfed the computer to see what was in stock and then, before he had even told me the price, he got on the phone and called another location. They spoke for a couple minutes and then he hung up the phone and said "they'll be here by noon". I was still scratching my head when he asked "you want to pay for them now?" At this point, I felt like I was committed and I sheepishly handed over my credit card. 10 seconds later I was signing a slip for $90 and learning a $30 lesson that I am way too old to be learning.
Even worse, it was 9:00 AM, I had nothing else to do, and I was 30 minutes from my house...so I drove home. Then I got caught up in other stuff and didn't feel like making the 1 hour round trip to pick up my parts that afternoon...so they sat.
I finally made my way to NAPA 4 days later...driving 30 minutes to get there...and I realized that if I had ordered the parts online, they would have been $60, I would have saved 2 hours of driving, and they would have been delivered to me on the same day that I drove to pick them up.
Stupidity ain't cheap.
