6 bloody hours to change out the lower intake gaskets on my wifes blazer. I could have had 4 bonnevilles done in that time. Man I hate Blazers.

gas is officially 4 even here in michigan >:(


at work tonight i was supposed to work 6pm to 6am well a storm hit and at about 10:40pm the power went out but it wasnt just out and stayed out it was like a horror movie where it flickered on and off a bunch of times and random lights throughout the shop would flash on and off it was insane, it was out for 2 hours and we were told if it wasnt on by midnight we could go home, well it came back on as soon as we were getting ready to leave and we had to stay and finish the parts we still had left or we would have to work 12 hour days all week to make shipment. but in that 2 hours we sat around we were sitting around and my friend matt was cleaning our cars and trucks off.. well i went outside to get something and saw all the snow around my truck was shovelled ONTO my hood.. so i took the 3ft by 3ft by 3 ft snow pile off my hood and put it on his 2011 camry he got when i got my truck. except i made it into the shape of a mans "you know what" and wrote some words all over his car lol
