EVERY time some tool goes missing or breaks, it is either on a Sunday or after normal business hours, so I can't replace it.
I had everything ready to do a tire rotation and oil change today, and I started jacking up the front of the truck with my floor jack. It went up a couple of inches...and started sinking faster than I could pump the handle. I loosened and re-tightened the release valve, and tried again. No dice. Checked the hyd. fluid level...it's fine.
Probably a failed seal or something, fixable, but not really what I want to be doing right now. So I look at the clock...it's after 8pm, every store in town that carries any decent brand (limited to Craftsman around here) is closed.
I cursed for a while, closed up the garage and quit for the day. Damn it to hell, I wanted to get this project out of the way and do OTHER things tomorrow.
