That sure does sound good... And add another grilled cheese for me too!

I grew up in Ohio and eventually settled in Texas where I look fwd to "winter" more than just about anything. Surprisingly I've seen it snow here at least 4x and loved it every time. But I know from living up north that when it's really cold with snow over a long stretch.. That's another story lol.

Still though... Chili just doesn't sit right with me unless it's cold out ( same with beef stew and some other meals). I like daytime highs around 65-70 and lows around 45-50. I just can't handle the heat and humidity anymore. Doing yard work last week was almost effortless because it was in the 60's... sunny and low humidity. In the summer, the same amt of work and I feel like I'm gonna die lol.

Napa Autoparts....

Called to see if they had tires chains. The guy said they had them in stock and gave me a price... cool. Showed up, confirmed the information and price, and said I will take them. The guy asked if I wanted them shipped to my house or to the store. Confused, I told the guy that I was told on the phone that the chains were in stock. He confirmed, they had them in stock, they just needed to be shipped from a store that was six hours away.... ***sigh***

Good Lord ^^^ That's ridiculous.

So- UPS. Sent return to Amazon, they create the label. Thankfully ( I thought) to keep the receipt/ tracking info. We eventually get charged by Amazon thru the seller... didn't receive the return. I try to go thru Amazon.. no dice. I contact the UPS store where I sent the return from... no dice. "Go online, create an account, file a claim, etc, etc". Judas. Are there just no phones at companies anymore? Even emails seem to be a dying correspondence option. I have to set up this account or use that app just to let you know that your company screwed up and lost my stuff? Thanks?

Had a transmission flush a little while back... On my road trip this weekend I find transmission oil dripping from the undercarriage, so I turn around. Today I take it in (made the appt on Monday), they check everything over. The oil level is a bit high, but ok, and the transmission is fine, but they could tell a decent amount of oil came out of the transmission's vent. The service manager insists they did not overfill the transmission after the flush, but can't tell me where the "extra" transmission oil came from.

It was either overfull, or got hot.

My guess would be overfilled unfortunately.

My brother has a truck with over 300k on it.. mind you he works in parts at the dealership.. but he had a trans service done and it didnít make it back from the road test afterwards. Now we donít service transmissions without a history and my brother got a trans installed for free. He had to buy the assembly through.

Sounds like you scored some extra ATF for free!

Thatís frustrating for sure. I work in the automotive field and absolutely hate having to get anything done to my cars. Fortunately/unfortunately that doesnít happen often unless my Toyota needs warranty work done.

Or tiresÖ I hate doing tires.

Amazon is doing something really interesting this year.

When I ordered my nVidia RTX 3070ti - they sent me a shipping notification and a message saying that I would get a code via text to provide the delivery person to prevent package theft!

Sure enough, I got a text from the driver when they were close asking me to corral any pets and turn on the lights out by my door if needed, and then when she arrived she asked for the code before handing me my big-ticket purchase.

Seeing as how I had a package stolen a few months back (from in front of my 3rd floor apartment door, no less!), this was MUCH appreciated...

Those criminal dumbasses that stole my package that time got a 12 pack of energy drinks, a small Wiha driver set, and a pair of jeans. I'll bet they thought they really scored based on the weight of the 12-pack!

Amazon refunded me on that one - I know it was stolen from in front of my door, because the driver snapped a pic of it sitting there and it was attached to my "delivered" email.

I get those 12-packs every 10 days, doubt it was the driver that took it - if they shook the package it would have sloshed...

Been waiting 2 weeks for my element ecto I ordered from my lhs. It was on backorder when the order was placed which was fine because the element website showed an eta of mid November.. which is when I ordered it. They tried selling me on the rtr w/lipo combo but first off Iíve got 2 chargers and Iím not spending an extra $80 for a 2s lipo Iíll never use. So roughly 5 days after I placed the order element showed them in stock. This was Wednesday before thanksgiving and I waited until Saturday evening to roll into the hobby shop and ask for a status. Without looking the guy tells me theyíre still on backorder. I said interesting it shows stock online. Oh.. let me check. Hey look thereís stock here in California. Iíll place another order and you should see it by the end of the week. Granted itís still not the end of the week but I could have ordered from any online retailer and had it over a week ago smh

Rant thread, probably beating a dead horse but I can blow off a little steam at Traxxas.

Pre-ordered a grey Defender either day of or day after announcement. Small LHS but been with traxxas since 1986

Fast forward to release week, lhs was confused on order status they were seeing, supposed to be coming on one screen, backorder on next.

Spent a good amount of time on the phone trying to get it sorted accross multiple days. By this point I had doubled the order in parts damn near because I grabbed a bronco from an LHS 30 minutes away so I had a TR4M for the event the next weekend.

After plenty of bs getting to the right person, my defender was set with the LHS traxxas order. But someone took it and put it with another larger LHS order.

Wouldn't hunt around the warehouse or anything to find another one or set one aside as shipments kept arriving.

Their regional traxxas rep which of course covers all area LHS was beyond pissed cause all but 2 of his stores were dealing with BS from traxxas.

If the trx4m wasn't so cool Id tell traxxis to pack sand cause they dropped the ball bad and making 0 effort to make anything right.

Iíll eat crowÖ about 2 hours after my last post my lhs called and informed me my ecto made it. They didnít inform me that the box had been opened and the battery/charger removed because that was the only way they could get one. Oh well Iíll take it.
