Good friend of mine....known him for about 25 years...called me several weeks ago and wanted to know if I'd be interested in servicing the transmission in his 2003 S10 pickup. I agreed to do it....told him I'd do it for free if he gets the fluid and filter kit. He's in a wheel chair due to a wreck 28 years ago. I've helped him do several things in the past, but years ago. So...I did the work. Even told him that after it's driven once, he might get his brother-in-law to crawl back under and retorque the pan bolts. We all know, sometimes they need retightening, sometimes they don't, but at least CHECK THEM. It's not his primary vehicle, so it sits for weeks at a time. A couple weeks after I did it, he texts me. Said he drove the truck, came home and had his brother-in-law check the fluid....it was spot on. I asked him if he at least parked it on concrete at looked for drips. "Nah, I think it'll be OK". This was nearly 4 weeks ago. Today, he texts me. "Drove the truck for the 1st time (which is a lie) for 10 miles. Fluid is pouring out from underneath. I thought you were at least a half assed mechanic? Brother-in-law crawled under and said the pan was about to fall off". I tried to call him to remind him of our previous conversations. He answered the phone and immediately hung up. Won't answer my tests either. I swear...even when you do stuff to help people out... He isn't the first person to ask me for help, and I'll do it, then they'll criticize my work when whatever went wrong afterwards wasn't even my fault. As of now, I don't know what our friendship status is. I'm leaning toward not giving a f*@k.
