A tad stressful Roady, thanks!
I could ply you all with a loooooong post on the downside of life, but my nature prefers to lean more positively.
Most of the time. :)
Last Friday evening, for instance.....positive was hard to pull out of my boots, but I reached waaaaaaaay down deep. Doggone it, where had that positive done run off to, anyway?
Got a voicemail from the big local Chevy/GM dealer that is fixing my truck.
Lady blasted through the light and t-boned me on March 25th. Coupla weeks of arguing with her insurance company until they saw the light. Then the go ahead for the dealer to fix my beloved 2000 GMC 3/4 ton Sierra.
And so, as you all know, I have been waiting her return home anxiously.......
The voicemail said my truck was ready. Yay!!!!!
Hubby and I went up to get it.
Saw her shiny new self and got in. Lordy, felt so good to be back 'home'!
Started her up and headed back across town to get my rental vehicle so I could return it.
My pickup didn't sound very good. It 'clunked' in the rear and felt bogged down.
I put it in AWD to see how the transition was. BAD IDEA.
CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK.
Oh boy. This was a not even drive-able type of clunk.
I pulled off the road and had hubby get in it. Hubby was quite un-impressed as well. We managed to get it back to the shop at the dealer--who was now closed.
I left a full page note on the front seat and called and left a voicemail to the shop also.
Got a call from the shop manager today.
Seems they found the problem.
They put the WRONG rear end in my truck. Seriously.
They want me to know how sorry they are, terribly, terribly sorry.
They were going to get the right one as quickly as possible and yes, I could keep my rental vehicle longer.
I asked if this wrong part could have caused damage to anything.
He doesn't 'think' so.
Yes, that will be in writing........
Positive is still here.....just have to hunt a little longer for it.
