What grinds my gears is when People criticize the fact that I use premium fuel in my cars. giving me reasons like "you're wasting money", "you dont need that", or "i'm only going to pay for the price of regular" (someone who offered to pay for gas on a trip). I am the only car guy in my family and friends, so trying to explain to them a/f ratios, spark knock, and detonation is pointless.

It's not really a waste of money, I mean it's what like $2-3 more dollars a fill up for the better gas. If you're that hurting for money than you shouldn't offer to pay for the gas to begin with.
And the manual says recommended 91 octane or better for wrx and 93 octane for sti

What grinds my gears is people acting like my side job (detailing cars/Mechanic work) is something that I just do as a hobby. Asking me things like "if i help can I have half off" "Can You come to my house instead of me coming to the shop" "i want to watch so I can Learn How to do It"

I dont mind helping people, but too many people act like what I do is just for fun. I do it to suppliment my income. I dont even mind giving breaks on my prices every once in a while, but just expecting something for free or expecting me to spend triple the time to explain how/why im doing what im doing so they can "learn" really gets under my skin.

I also cant stand when people would like you to do a favor for them but are unwilling to meet you halfway. My buddy asked me to detail his truck (a 10+ hour project) and wanted me to come to his house. when I asked if he could just come to my shop so I could work indoors (its 40 degrees and windy today, not good for detailing) he got angry and said to forget it.
He would be getting a free detail on his truck (something I charge $500+ for) and he couldnt be bothered to drive it 20 minutes.

Just tired of people expecting something and willing to do nothing for it.

End Rant!

I want to take a sledgehammer to every person's car in my apartment complex who just flings open their doors right into my car. I know exactly who they are because I check my car every night and every morning (yes, I'm OCD like that). I even park far away to keep it from happening. $%*%@^ $&#*^! I want to destroy something!




Thank you for listening.
