So, many of you know I'm moving in a week...

Well one of my best friends and I were working on the car, I need to do some routine maintenance and shit before I drive 800 miles.. we swapped inner and outer tie rods, swapped some hoses, new coolant temp sensor, changed the oil, and replaced a broken exhaust manifold stud, gasket, and gaskets in the lower manifold. Fuel filter, some other crap.

Well, my neighbor is a Mexican and comes over to talk to me, even though he speaks no English. We go through the typical routine of him trying to explain something for 20 minutes while we just look at him and pretend to know what hes talking about. I guess he wanted to help, I saw him pick up a socket wrench?

I walk away, and hes gone, no big deal, right? Yoshi says he tightened a bolt up or something.

Well, I go out to my car a minute ago and notice he broke an exhaust manifold stud. I just replaced a broken one! And this one is broken off in the head where I can't get it out. Pisses me off!

Well I'm drunk now and hopefully I'll get over it, just puts me in a bad mood, I guess Im not mad at the guy but shit!!

Thanks guys! Feel a little better now. 6 pack of Bud Light w/ Lime didn't help, but after a few 24 oz Icehouse cans I'm good!
