Seasoned Mechanics

Seasoned Mechanics

Postby AstroWill [OP] » April 30th 2021, 8:03pm

I had my son attempt to replace a lower ball joint on the van. Knowing how much of a PITA they are I didn't even expect him to get one rivet removed. He actually did really well and lasted longer than I expected.

He was tired after his attempt, and I told him that I never expected him to be able to finish the ball joint I just wanted him to try. I then stated that 'even seasoned mechanics hate doing these ball joints'.

His reply:
You are seasoned, with salt.
We won't talk about his first attempt at deviled eggs ;)

:rofl: I damn near fell off my chair.

If this was a paid job and not a learning experience I definitely would have been replacing the entire lower arm.

Mmmm, I love me some deviled eggs.

They were salty ;) Was quite a few years ago, but he learned the difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon and to NOT get the two mixed up.
