Default I am sad

I sheared a stud on the intake manifold side. That's it. Just want to complain.

I am sad too, I missed a fedex packaged 2x already, it's signature required. I took the day off to wait for it, thinking it's my reverent built ms2. It turns out to be an xmas present I bought for a friend, a $50 heatshield from cobb... stupid cobb requiring signature on a $50 part! They didn't get here until 8:30pm. My doorbell was broken too, so I sat by the door watching tv all day, eating delivery.

^ That seems a lot less saddening than going without your car for a week. Stupid holidays. Plus, you want to know whats even worse? I had all the other studs on fine, but it was the last ******* one that had to mess up my day.

More than once, this has made me consider not tipping the delivery guy... even though it's probably not his fault.

I can promise you it's not the drivers fault. The drivers generally drive, the inside people are in charge of basically clearing orders (hitting a button on a computer screen when the order is in received and again when it goes in the oven). If the tracker doesn't work it's probably b/c its really busy and they don't have time. If the pizza is late, it's probably b/c its really busy and drivers have to take multiple orders at once, we aren't supposed to do more then 2 at once (and that is avoided, but sometimes 3 have to be taken at once) and we aren't supposed to drive anywhere that it takes any more then 9 minutes to get to. That doesn't work out either.

Bullshit. I expect to be able to monitor my order every step of the way.

I'm telling you that when a delivery driver is late it is not his/her fault when the reason he/she is late is b/c of somebody else's fuckup.

To everyone:
Light up your goddamn address outside your house and put it in big easy to read lettering in the same place your neighbors have theres.

That makes things 100x easier, and a few minutes faster if your order is at night.
