Eventually if you kick your vehicle's mudflaps hard enough over the course of a 143 month long winter they will detach. I kick all of my mudflaps on a regular basis but the one just outside my driver's door gets the most attention.
Gol darn winter!! (KICK KICK), effin' snow!! (KICK KICK), never ending hours of stupid freezing rain!! (KICK KICK KICK)!!
As I was driving along Tuesday I heard the ever mysterious, usually unidentifiable, motor vehicular sound: "clunkety clunkety clunk"! So I turned up the radio as everyone knows that's the best known method of resolving mystery noises.
I got out to do the once around the truck inspection and was able to ascertain the source of the clunkety clunking in mere seconds. Yes, my mudflap was flapping in the breeze with a tenuous hold on the "under belly" (isn't that what the mechanics call it??) of Dougie the Dodge.
Next morning I called MY GUY. I love MY GUY. I love his whole family as Ron Kraft Auto Care is a family run business. Mom, dad, son, daughter-in-law, cousin, neighbour (could be!)
Here's the conversation:
"Hello, this is Jane. I've kicked my truck one too many times and need to get a mudflap fixed. When can I come in?"
"How soon can you get here?"
"See you in 20 minutes!"
About 20 minutes and $11.00 later Dougie and I were off to the races!! Vroom vroom vroom!
Who's YOUR guy??
