Trying to stop GHT from his antics is like standing in front a train doing 70Mph and demanding it to cease its movement.


Exactly.


Or not. And it is snide comments like this that get me upset. What gives YOU the right?

Go back and re-read.


Snide? It is accurate.

Listen, this forum is a feedback mechanism. YOU control what you hear based on what you post. You've posted a great amount of detail with regards to what can only be described as the Soap Opera that is your life. I can post whatever I like in response to this, that is my RIGHT, as long as it doesn't violate the rules of the forum, which my post didn't.

Don't like what you hear? Then change what you post. It is that simple. If you don't want to be treated as a fool, stop behaving like a fool and bragging about it. Your behaviour is reckless, your actions without direction or seemingly even intelligent consideration. You don't strike me as a stupid person, but your actions say otherwise. I don't care if you are challenged, damaged or "messed up". That doesn't exempt your actions from criticism, actions which you make it a point to show the world in GREAT DETAIL on this forum. Then you get upset when the responses paint you as some sort of troll or buffoon.

These responses are the product of your actions. You want different responses? Change the input.

Let's examine this for a moment.

Who knew that spinning the tires hard enough to send rubber chunks into the snow would cause damage?

Everyone...well everyone that either read their owners manual or had common sense...where did you think those rubber bits were coming from anyway?

But you had to...because your feet were cold...because you weren't wearing socks in 2 feet of snow...

Now, you're out a few thousand $$ (and by your own admission, you don't have $$ to spare...) because of your multitude of mistakes...and BITOG members are all wrong.

Sure....

You know, life is hard.

It's even harder when you're stupid..,

GHT isn't stupid - just really immature and has no respect for his "lady friend" or any property. This was his chance to do a burnout in an AWD, and it was an expensive lesson (or in his mind made $500 on it). There are some people who just won't help themselves, and continue to do self destructive things to themselves time and time again.

The fact that you are from the UK is of no significance to me.
Did you mean the United Kingdom or the University of Kentucky?

This should be your next car...

Made back when volvos were volvos. You'd like working on it too, much more room than the newer ones.

There is something to be said for one of these:

I wish that everyone on this forum would realize that this is just a desperately lonely man screaming for attention by doing the truly stupid things he does. And he will continue with his antics until we as a group don't feed his addiction for the attention any longer. Please stop feeding the troll!

Thank you.

Since you said to, then I will.

Stop using items that impair your ability to think things through properly, and you will be a lot more successful in life.

What I get out of this is that there will be a Volvo again. I love that car. I don't have time for all the smart comments about it. \\ that $500? .. the car almost got signed over for free to a shop. Run with that one.

Did I lose money? .. There is no answer I could give here that wouldn't make this thread disintegrate into name-calling insults. And I'm not going to do that anymore.


I'm going to point out the extremely obvious...

If you fix the $200 part that is broken, instead of getting $500 for the car, you can get all $2000 back. Last time I checked, $2000 is greater than $500.

I feel sorry for any vehicle that winds up with you as its owner, or maintenance responsible party.

BC.

So...self-destructive, really immature, disrespectful of others, and won't help himself...but that's not stupid?

Exactly what I was thinking! Now add a tire to the cost of the repairs.
