Angry So this is why...

You don't let friends fuck around with your ranger...

When I was putting on my body lift this past Sunday, my buddy was working on the steering wheel extention. He decided he needed to use a pry bar to get the steering shaft in the right position. In the midst of doing this, somehow the pry bar slips off and hits my high pressure valve for my A/C. Small little peice that's welded together.

Now free-on is spewing everywhere, and it's colored green. I think they just dyed it for leaks. I go to the local Ford stealership and they tell me it's only a $10 part. I was thinking that's fantastic. I work at a dealership right down the road and I was just gonna have them put it on.

Turns out the idiot at the Ford store gave me the completely wrong part, and it's going to cost a lot more than $10. Mind you, I get dealer cost since I work for one, but with parts, labor, and install it's gonna be $290. Before I found this out and after we were done with the lift, my buddy had the balls to ask me for money for helping me with the lift. I told him we'll see depending on how much that costs to get fixed, we'll see how much I pay him.

The valve is part of a 1 piece hose that runs all through the front of my truck. Everything has to be replaced.

I hope I put this in the right section... and

End Rant...

just asking for it in the first palce (without him damaging your truck) is kind of a low blow in my book. I'd help, and have helped, any of friends with whatever they need and no way am I going to charge them or ask them for money; if they offer me lunch or something that's cool, but I won't ask them to.

You should just offer to help him out with his next mod instead of money, then "accidently" connect his horn to his right turn signal....

Turn Signals? Try wiring it to the brakes! On topic though, get him to help pay for it if it was his fault, honestly!

I did buy lunch for him, his girl, his buddy and his buddy's girl... When he agreed to help me he never mentioned anything about money. I was gonna pay him anyway, but after he broke something I really didn't feel ilke doing that at all. I'm the same way bro, I'm more than willing to help out even if I don't get paid for anything. Some people are like that, some aren't.

I've already ordered the parts and having them installed by my work tomorrow. Thanks for the offer though Jason. Too bad people like you, Clinton and Matt aren't closer to help.

That sucks, cool you work at a dealership, but man I'd talk to him about it and be like I would have given you money if you hadn't busted up my truck. And also maybe next time with the same guy ask if he his wanting money to help so you know ahead of time even if you plan on giving him money anyways. Anytime I've helped my buddies out I get lunch or when I use to drink they would buy the beer for the night, it was never asked for its just how we roll out here...I too wish there was people like Clinton, Fra, and Jason out here to help me out! I have not dealt with Clinton directly but he seems like good peeps...

Yea, I'm basically the same way. I'll work for free, but if they offer some food or beer I'll take it if I'm feeling it. But never ask for anything. That's the way me and my close friends are, this guy is more a friend. Just don't think it's right of him to ask for $100 after breaking something and also getting a free lunch. But such is life, and i'll be fine.

That is one thing I never do is ask a friend money for someone's help or expect them to ask me for money. I would be pissed regardless if they broke something or not. If they are true friends, they wouldnt ask for money anyways.

I have this understanding with all of my friends that "i help you, you help me". I will never ask for money, I enjoy the time I spend with my friends and also enjoy the task of completing something together....

just my .02
