Truck Back, But …

I went and got the truck back this afternoon.

All was fine until I was driving down University and went to change lanes. I signaled … but there wasn’t the familiar mechanical sound that goes with my blinkers being engaged. At the next stop light, I checked my blinkers in the chrome bumper of the car in front of me. They don’t work.

It was about that time that I also noticed that my air conditioning, which is normally slow to cool on a hot day when the truck’s been sitting for a while, wasn’t cooling at all.

Mechanically, the truck is in great shape. However, that is not a complete repair.

At present, I’m too pissed off to think rationally, so I’m going to sit here for about half an hour and occupy my mind with something else before I set about to getting this straightened out.


  1. Reminds me of a time when I had my clutch replaced and the fookers forgot to plug the speedometer (sp?) back in, thus the poor decrepid Rice Rocket II had no MPH, odometer, or cruise control.

    Then when the tension cable came loose and I thought the clutch had destroyed itself 2 months after being replaced, I had the mechanic plug it back in, cause I had no idea what the problem was. It cost me more to tow the car than it did to fix it.
