blonde goes to a auto parts store and asks for a 710 cap.

Everybody looks at each other and asks, “What’s a 710 cap?”

She says, “You know, it’s right on the engine. Mine got lost somehow and I need a new one.”

“What kind of a car is it?” they ask.

She says that it’s a Buick.

“OK, lady, how big is it?”

She makes a circle with her hands about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

“What does it do?”

She says, “I don’t know, but it’s always been there.”

One of the guys gives her a note pad and asks her if she can draw a picture of it. So she makes a circle about 3 1/2 inches in diameter and in the center she writes 710.

The guys on the opposite side of the counter are looking at as she writes it… and they just fall down behind the counter laughing so hard.

One guy says, “I think you want an OIL cap!”

I can't remember on what brand it was but my parents had a mini van that had a wiper fluid reservoir in what looked like the tail light.

When I was in high school, me and a few friends worked at Amoco. On a few occasions we would take the winter air out of the tires and put summer air in. They were happy to hear this would improve their MPG. whistle

Here is a good story. When I was in High School I worked at a gas station. I had a kid come in, im guessing 20 or so. He came in and purchased a qt of oil. He paid for it and he went outside opened his hood to put the oil in. After he opened his hood he stood there confused. He then came in and asked for a funnel. We had the kind you screw on the jug and turn the knob and it flows in. I gave him the funnel and he proceeded to go back outside. He again looked confused. He came back in and said the funnel I gave him wasnt going to work. Now I was confused. I told he it has to work. He said the funnel is too big...I just busted out laughing. The dumb **** was trying to put the oil in the dip stick hole. I laughed so hard. I have had 80 year old ladies came in and they did it right.

Once back in the college days I had a girlfriend that ran out of gas. Being the nice guy that I am, I asked her if she had an empty milk jug because I didn't have a gas can and I'd get her car running again. (Gas was $1 a gallon way back then)She gave me a milk jug and a twenty and asked if I could just fill up her tank.

Many years ago I had a customer call and explain that here battery was bad and they had another one but it was to big to fit in the car. they wanted to now if they could just "swap the juices" instead of swapping the batteries.

One of the best is the time they had the new guy shaking a rattle can until it stopped rattling on American Hot Rod. "you know when its mixed when it stops rattling". That kid shook that can until his arm just about fell off.

I had a guy come into the station I was working at and ask for $5 worth of gas. He hands me a $20. He follows me back into the station and I hand him a $10 back.

He gets to the door and says that I shorted him $5. I said "No I didn't, you gave me a $15 bill".

"Oh, OK" and he gets in his car before I could run out there to give him the rest of his change. grin

My current job is in a sheet metal shop and some of the guys will tell the newbs to go find a brass magnet or a metal stretcher.

I've done the "muffler belt sounds bad" one before.

Working at a shop in high school had a customer come in with a no start on a ford truck 5.0 engine. Ended up being a blown head gasket he did not want to pay the money for a new one and asked if we had a book he could barrow to show him to replace it. On his way out I told him his johnson rod was starting to go bad he responded "i know I have a new one in the garage gonna fix it this weekend"

I once had a lady come in to the shop asking for an ac recharge because her air was not blowing cold and it blew cold before.

So I went out and got her truck and pulled it in the shop to do the recharge. When I opened up the hood there was no ac compessor or lines so it had no ac. When I went up to get the lady to show her and explain to her that she did not have ac she told me that she used it last year. So i told her to show me. When she did she moved the lever to cold and turned the setting to vents. I had to walk away because I was laughing so hard. After an hour of explination she finally understood.

I'll never forget in Jr High (middle school now I guess) back when shop class was mandatory, the teacher gave us a list of tools to bring from home. At the end of class he said to add "elbow grease" to the list.

So needless to say, some of the kids weren't too impressed with him after asking thier parents for elbow grease to bring to school

We had a guy that had no business working in metal once where I used to work. They would send him to go look for a 2 foot piece of 12" I beam, or a piece of square tubing and it would take him over an hour to find it. They were gonna send him to look for a fallopian tube, but then they figured he would be gone all day

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
