I have a ten year old sentra and have the same problem...I think I need to go ahead and replace the rear struts before I get beaten.

I find it ironic when the flasher is in a jacked up pickup truck that has headlights three feet off the ground, roughly eye-level in my car, whereas my headlights miiiiight be 14" from the ground.

As overly cautious as I am when it comes to high beams there is no excuse in my book for it .
I want a A-pillar mounted search light light the cops have on their tahoes but they are not cheap . I pull a little stunt on those who dont dim even after I flash then leave them on of they dont dim but its a bad and dangerous enough move to where i wont say what it is , it gets my point across .

Not a bad day , pulled 600 in off 3 jobs in what 5 or so hrs , that includes driving 150 miles or so . I could have done more but my give a damn days are over and I am not beating myself up rushing to get to some ones boat .

My sister's stepkid was in a jeep with a buddy out in the deeeep boonies. There was a car in front of them with the brights on for miles and miles, ignoring the flashing of oncoming cars; the boys thought they knew the car/occupants. Jeep driver had flashed his brights a couple of times as a hint. Jeep driver hit his roll bar KC's eventually, at which point the car did dim its lights...unfortunately, one of the KC's was pointed backwards (temporary for trailer hookup, oops). It turns out the car back behind the Jeep was a patrol car, more unfortunately that deputy almost went in the ditch before hitting his flashy lights and pulling the Jeep over for a seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeriou s come to Jesus discussion and parental consultation via cellphone from the roadside.

But she took another one a bit ago that's been worrying her, so keep her in your thoughts and prayers that hopefully she did well.
Actually that was a different test. I took two tests yesterday. I got 100 on my basics of air conditioning test. I got a 97 on my 609 which means I am MVAC certified.

The test I took today was air conditioning diagnostics. I haven't gotten a score yet but I have been led to believe I did quite well. I feel like I answered A a lot though. Like for 90% of the test I answered A

You guys might not be seeing me on here for a little while. I'm going back to work. I'll be working straight 18s for a while. I'll be working in pain, but I'm not in anymore danger of injuring myself further than usual. I shouldn't have to go back. The doctor isn't comfortable with it because working long hours in pain will make the muscle spasms worse. But I'd rather feed my family and be in pain than starve or eat off the governments dime. Take that Obummer!

Hope I can keep up with this stuff on my down time but if not, I'll see you guys when I bail out of this massive debt pile. Gotta love when employers take care of their fricking people.
