Jan is so Fired ... Again
I love to roll in the dirt before and after sleeping with the cobwebs in my private clubhouse. And then I make Jan pick me up to carry me inside just so I can share my fun all over her clothes.
Jan is finally starting to limp around again but the car is still sitting in the same spot she parked it 2 1/2 weeks ago. And that's why Jan's been fired ... again.
We didn't have anything to do with firing her this time. We were all inside the house at the time so she can't blame any of us. We didn't even sneeze, snort, hoot or holler. We watched through the screen door, so we did snort, hoot and holler after the fact, but we weren't the cause.
See, Mr Doug, has been coming by when he can to try to figure out the problem. Last time he took some parts with him to check them. Before he put one part back today, he wanted to see if it was stuck, so he asked Jan to turn the key but not start the engine. Jan turned it to click. Everything was quiet so she thought she hadn't turned it far enough. Yep, she then turned it to the second click.
And then it wasn't quiet any more. Mr. Doug shouted, "You blew it up!"
He wasn't kidding. On the second click, the spring and the rod had shot right off the part.. A stunned Mr. Doug collected the pieces while Jan encouraged him with, "Well, I guess it wasn't stuck."
Mr. Doug did reassemble the part. But Jan is so fired ... again!
We really need to find something she's good at. We're going to have an inferiority complex if she keeps failing.
