hahaha... the last time (and, by all accounts, it should be the last time!!) I bought a battery, I bought a yellowtop for the Ranger... the guy wouldn't "install" it, since it wouldn't fit...

I said, "..just bang out that front lip on the tray, and it'll fit." He wouldn't do it.

I then said, "do you have a hammer I could borrow for a minute, or are you going to give me back all my money and make me drive home to get mine, then come back?"

He brought me out a hammer. Two minutes later, I was driving out of the parking lot...
