Because I did, it never seems to fail lately.
I went out late last night to see if that Bronco would start just because.
It did, just barely.
I could hear that new fuel pump running but instead of running for a second, building pressure and shutting off, it just kept running.
I went out there this morning and it did the same thing except this time it was a No Start.
To say I was pissed off would be a great understatement.
Furious would be closer.
So then of course then it turned into a complete shit show, calling and dealing with those dumb motherfuckers at NAPA again.
To be courteous, I am going to give you the condensed version.
They don’t have another one. Yes, they still have my original one.
Good, I will be in to get it back.
I need another one one ASAP so I can get back and forth to work.
Drive over there with the new one after taking the sonofabitch back out and hear this,
The fastest we can get one is from the vendor in PhillyFuckingDelphia and we can’t get it here before next Friday.
I am going out of town for the weekend next Friday.
Why don’t you try a U-Pull It wrecking yard?
(Insert look of stunned disbelief on my part here)
Why don’t YOU give me my old ECM and money back, order the fucking new one and call me when it gets here.
I swear to God, I have been buying parts from NAPA for FORTY FUCKING YEARS NOW
I have slowly witnessed not only the quality of their parts go in the toilet but especially, the quality of their hired help.
The young man behind the counter had no clue how to complete the transaction nor correctly order the part, the surly old bitch who someone has pathetically put in charge because of Muh Diversity or something can see that I am completely fucking pissed off, will not even look at me nor talk to me and completely fucking ignores me while she schools the dumb kid on how to do his fucking job, then announces she is going to lunch and might as well have told me to go fuck myself on the way out.
I’m sure she could see that I was close to grabbing someone by the throat and choking the life out of them so she was careful to stay just out of reach as she did all this..
They used to have competent parts people behind the counter but have literally run them all off.
I am all done with these cocksuckers.
So I got the electrons transferred back into my account, grabbed my old processor and walked out the fucking door.
On my way home I decided to swing by another parts place that has been a stalwart community member for over thirty years that I have been going to to see what they had to say.
I swear to you on my Mother’s grave, it was almost exactly the same thing.
Dumb kid behind the counter, didn’t know how to order the part, had to have another guy come over and hold his hand throughout the entire process and BEST OF ALL, find out they have to get it from THE EXACT SAME SUPPLIER AS NAPA, back in PhillyFuckingDelphia, except even better, it will take TWO WEEKS!
I thanked them for their time, snagged my old processor off the counter, came home, put that dirty motherfucker BACK In again and the cocksucker went VROOOM and started right the fuck up.
I am so pissed off and disgusted right at the moment I am beside myself.
