    My stepdad's work truck broke this morning a few miles from the house. He calls my mum out of work to come get him. My mum owns/manages/runs a convenience store. So its no big deal if she leaves, they both go back. I go in there this morning to get some tea. And he is telling another one of her employees about it. And her employee asks me what I thought was wrong with it. His truck just shut off on him, it will start and run for a few seconds, then die. My dad completely ingnored my response and called and woke up my brother-in-law. Who just happens to own the same year truck as him. Hes like "Shit man....fuel pump, that electronic shit goes out all the time" So my dad is about to write a $1400 check to get that done.

    I'm an ASE certified MASTER Tech goddammit. I got so much schooling and training on just this subject. But I'm unemployed at the moment, so he thinks I'm a shitty mechanic and not worth highering, which means I dont know how to work on cars to him...

    But fuck him, he can waste his money....I'm done trying to be his friend.

    It's cuz he's too macho. and probably fucking stupid besides. Don't let it get you down, it's just one of those annoyances.
