    TRUE STORY-SOLD A GUY A LAWN TRACTOR BATTERY, HE COMES BACK IN ABOUT AN HOUR AND SAYS BATT. NO GOOD.
    HE PUT THE 1/4 IN. BOLTS, SOMEHOW, THROUGH THE PLASTIC COVERS ON THE TERMANILS. THINGS LIKE THAT
    MAKE ME FEEL A LITTLE BETTER SOMEHOW.

    WELL AT LEAST IT WAS A CHICK. I CAN SEE THAT, BUT THIS GUY WAS A FARMER DUDE. AND HE HAD TO WORK LIKE HELL TO GET THOSE BOLTS THROUH THE PLASTIC COVERS! I ALMOST LAUGHED IN HIS FACE BUT HE WAS A BIT LARGER THAN I!
    SO BEING THE GENT. THAT I AMπ^=€ I VERY NICELY SUGGESTED REMOVING THE TERM. PROTECTORS THEN INSTALL THE BATT.
