I recommend fish oil, Clags, for your constipation. I go at least twice a day. Hee ha

Well...the auto repair shop took me to the bank.
$500 for rear break pad (had my own parts) replacement along with rotors. He flushed the break fluids and changed my oil (had my own).

He basically took advantage of me....shog[1].gif

No, in actual fact, the gravitational pull of the Earth on your baby wipes is slightly weaker on the third floor than it would be on the ground floor.

 

Hope this helps.

Damn. I so wanted that sky blue three-piece suit. But my buddies on the Rudals thread said no, it's not working for you.

 

I think I might on this occasion have to listen to my buddies and pass on the suit.

Everyone should own a light gray suit. (I care not for your complexion concerns, fair people!) EVERYONE. Then wear it with a white shirt, black grenadine tie, and black shoes. You will look awesome. And then wear it with a white shirt, sky-blue with black/white stripes tie, and dark brown shoes. You will look awesome.

Y'all need higher-capacity plumbing.

Cox, revisiting my earlier comment (pre-coffee and consciousness) about "horizontal" waistcoats, I think they work better when they are not in the same fabric as the suit. TTO posted a navy suit with a white (cream?) DB waistcoat, and it looks great.

cox - pass. you will find something just as good or better, that works better for you, in good time.

SB - nothing to do with capacity of plumbing. things that dont dissolve fuxxor your pipes.

Baby wipes are awesome - just only flush one at a time.  The awesome thing is, you only need one.  Also, this is only necessary in the uncivilised world where a butt-washing hose or bidet are unavailable.  I mean really, if you got shit on your hand, would you really just wipe it with a piece of paper?

 

Anyway, good you had a clear out, Noodles, because that mechanic certainly made use of the vacancy in your butt.  I guess the racist comment for the day (there's no way I'm giving up racial abuse in this thread!) is that he clearly assumed Asian accountants don't understand vehicle maintenance.  $500 to change oil and pads and you brought your own parts?!  Damn!  Greg's reading this and putting a zero on your Formosa invoice...

 

Also, cf. three piece linen suits, alas mine all got too big for me and I look forward to replacing them at some point.  But climate aside, the primary reason for wearing one is looking awesome.  Ask Butler for evidence.

@mimo 

I think I was too busy working that I wasn't aware of what was hitting me. I got hit left and right at the auto shop. 

Had my own break pads, my own oil and filter...but I still paid $500. 

 

My racist comment of the day is "Don't trust the polite white mechanic. He'll take you to the bank."

A lot of shops frown on customers bringing their own parts so that may be why too. They gotta make their money one way or another.
post #6114 of 37396

True.  But I think it's unfair to rip off Asians on service just because they can't drive.

Get better plumbing,...it's never happened to me. :)

 

And my ringpiece is sweet as your mother's kisses.

 Always a white shirt?   Would a very light blue be acceptable, if not, perhaps, optimal?

 

Cheers,
