Yesterday and today I learned what the odyssey was all about.
I replaced the radiator in my wife's car. Never done that before. That wasn't bad. What WAS bad was the endless run around from the parts stores that would order a part "It's coming in from Columbia, SC. Be here tomorrow at 9am!" Can you hear my derisive laughter from here? "I need the little plastic clips that undo quick couplings on the transmission lines that run into and out of the radiator. " Oh, we have those." Get there. "Oops, sorry... " says the ninteen year old young lady behind the counter..."I thought you meant the clips that hold them on. "Hey, have you got a bottom hose for the radiator of a "x".?" Nope have it here in three days, or you can drive twenty five miles to florence to get one!"
Seriously? I mean, it was three different parts companies, and they all crapped out on me.
So, I learned how to replace a radiator, and how to keep my cool and not burn down a town.
Does that count?
