for my little automotive festival of stupidity earlier? I feel that when someone makes a dumb repair mistake like this, there should be some sort of equivalent to going to confession and saying hail Marys, or a ‘scarlet letter’ of some sort, like having to wear a t-shirt with a Camry on it or something.

I did manage to remove several layers of skin from the inside of my middle finger on my left hand, from turning the jack handle. Also, the tire that was under the van was caked in dirt and mud. I ended up looking like a guy who’s been homeless for five years.
