...1990 NA Miata, complaint that old aftermarket radio was defunc so they wanted a new one.
I finish wiring up the harness when I noticed whoever did this install ran their own accessory power wire...
it blew the fuse for the radio. Go to check the fuse and found out that a 20A fuse was put into the fuse box when it should have been a 15A.

So I work as an engineer at a company you know and use their product everyday. There is a contractor that was hired to rearrange and make inserts for our toolboxes. We had (2) 14mm wrenches in this toolbox. Someone (who makes a lot of $$) decided that they took up too much space and replaced them with (1) 28mm wrench. So now we have 15+ toolbox inserts that are junk and have to explain to the contractor why that just won’t do.

I can not make up this level of stupid folks

A carrier bearing failed and clearly blew apart at 70mph. Customer was able to drive it in 4x4 to the shop, I could hear it grinding as it came in.

What’s even more funny is the customer wouldn’t let me fix it. And the lack of windows in record-breaking summer heat is the first thing I thought of. I found the driver inspection logs and the a/c has been out for months.
