Re: [DML] Optima want fries with that?

Gus' story reminded me of one I hadn't shared with the
group yet.  This story is true and I have witnesses!

A few months after I bought 02650 (back in 1997), a
few friends and I were hanging out in the Econo-Lube
that the one friend owned.  We started getting goofy
and decide to have some fun with the Pep Boys that was
across the street.  (On Route 40 west for any
Marylanders.)  So I called over there, got the parts
counter and when asked what I needed, asked for a
"flux capacitor for a 1981 Delorean".  I got put on
hold and figured even if this noodle had never seen
BTTF he'd surely ask someone else, then I figured he'd
hang up on me.  Well, a couple minutes goes by and he
gets back on the phone.  "What sort of part is that?" 
"Electrical" I reply.  "Hold On..."  Another couple
minutes go by.  We're starting to laugh our collective
a$$es off when "Hello?, I can't find a reference for
it.  I think I can special order it though.  It would
be here by next Monday.  Would you like to do that?" 
I couldn't take it anymore and had to say "no thanks"
before I lost it.  In hind sight, I probably should
have ordered it.  You never know what I might have

Chalk it up as one time when the Delorean OWNER wasn't
the victim of the BTTF joke!
