As soon as you mentioned obscure song topics the Boobs-A-Lot song by The Fugs popped into my head. That one I don't mind being stuck in my head. Makes me happy.

Thanks, TechTyger! I just launched a mouthful of coffee onto my keyboard.

Or was this guy really a doctor who didn't realize his patient was a laptop?

The manager was incorrect. Dude wasn't a piece of shit, he was the whole damned turd.

This conversation is turning into an udder catastrophe.

Was "David" one person, or was that a moniker you stuck on the treadmill of seagull managers that segued (is that a word?)through this story? Anyways, I'm glad you're past this. Good luck in the future!

As a fellow ex-trucker (I run mobile crane now, paid by the hour), I feel your pain. You're paid by the mile? Fuck 'em. From the customer's POV: let the trucker sit for 2-3 hours to get loaded, then same to get unloaded. No skin off our asses. Why are you late delivering? Hung up at Customs/border crossing/broker for 3 hours because the shipper didn't have his paperwork in order? Not our problem. Don't miss it at all.

Don't cloud the issue with facts. Give me an Icee!

My first thought was the laptop was an expensive gift given to the daughter by the parents. It got stolen and she didn't want to admit that she lost it. I think your theory is more likely.

I apologize if I'm stepping on moderator's toes here (Sorry Freddy!), but just to clarify: these aren't new stories being submitted. Tales from 36055512 about DUCD were written years ago (and to echo Kathleen written in fine fashion, too). Keep'm coming!

Why did I just read this in Jim Gaffigan's voice?

This is just one of the GREAT tales from the Dishonest Used Car Dealership saga. Any time I've had a bad day I go to 36055512 and read until I'm crying breathlessly with laughter. This guy knows how to write!

Sorry, I only use caffeine free ice in my drinks.

And I must mention my all time fav: Harvey Birdman Attorney At Law.

For years I had a 15' BUD (big ugly dish) in my backyard, no unhappy flashbacks at all. My kids grew up on Space Ghost CtoC, Sealab 2021, Home Movies, etc. And being Canadian we got to watch all these American shows months before they showed up (if ever) on Canadian channels.

And I thought to myself, 'a little fermented curd will do the trick', so, I curtailed my Walpoling activites, sallied forth, and infiltrated your place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some cheesy comestibles!

I know.

I totally believe you. I used to live in Regina (city in Canadian prairie province) at a garage next to a car wash and used to regularly see Alvin Law wipe his minivan down after a wash with just his feet. Alvin Law is a Thalidomide baby (had the flippers instead of arms) and an amazing guy. Used to see shorts on the news showing him driving, eating, playing drums, etc. all with his feet.

Crap! I just snorted coffee all over my keyboard! Kind of weird though that somebody has enough smarts to disassemble their computer, but not enough to know the difference between a hard drive and a power supply.

This is unacceptable treatment of a valuable customer! I want a manager!

Well I wasn't wrong. But to explain myself: I won't deny that I would be angry if I was in this situation, simply that vulgarity just isn't naturally the way I express myself. However, I would feel different if this happened in a dark parking lot at midnight.

I'll probably get flamed for saying this, but it's probably for the best that you aren't an Uber driver. Anybody who can't utter a single sentence without throwing in an F-bomb shouldn't be dealing with the public. "Excuse me Mr, that not a way you talk to a customer". How about the way YOU talk to another human being? I don't read here once that she swore at you.

This is where you break out the big stick of chalk, draw a line through 'Motorcycle', and write in below 'Reserved For Assholes'.
