True story while picking up parts to repair a water backup pump. I meant it as a joke. Turns out the guy at the counter was a Jeep guy too.
Haha.

I thought it was normal to be good friends with the autoparts people, lol. Every time I go in, they ask when I will have the Jeep running lol.

YEP!
The last time I went in to get a part the guy looked out and said "you're driving it?"
I was getting something for the "other" car. So we had to start from scratch "what kind of car, year, engine....."
