I finally sent in my ~10yo Leatherman to the warranty dept. to see what might happen. Worn out jaws, nubs for cutters, two of four blades broken off from prying on things.
This is what was sent back, with a nice "thanks for your business" std letter. Newer model and everything!

Uhaul "fixed" my electrical for towing which they then disabled my taillights completely by accident. The electrician that did the job said he did nothing to cause this , so I went to the Ford dealer down the road to have them take a look at it and wouldn't you know, there was a missed connection . Took the repair bill back to the same Uhaul and explained the situation to the manager and they gladly paid for my service bill from the dealer
I had to check inventory outside as my DMS wasn't pushing units to my Inventory Management software correctly. Went outside, and the wind was up, and within 5 minutes my allergies were going nuts, and my eyes were on FIRE. I tried everything not to touch them, but I couldn't help it. I rubbed them.
And then they went NUCLEAR. I haven't had them burn so bad in a long time. I'm out of eye drops, my Claritin isn't working, and my eyes feel like they have broken glass and salt in them.
Ah ha! I run downstairs, walk into the shop, and go to the emergency eye wash station. Sure, you're only supposed to use it if you get harsh chemicals in your eyes, but that's what it felt like I was dealing with.
Solid 30 seconds of cool water running through my blinking eyes, and I've fully rejoined the land of living.
i just spent the past 8 weeks in school, for my 3rd year of automotive service technician.
i made $27.60/hour before i went to school, and i was supposed to make $32/unit when i came back.
my boss instead pays my technician wages. $38.50/unit flat rate.
i take jobs from the tire/oil change pile, and upsell whatever i can find. i work 6 days a week, every other weekend off. if i hit over 100 hours, i get $40.50/unit. i cant complain with that!
i made 7.4 hours my first day, and 6.5 yesterday.
