Pops's attitude by tbolt Pops's attitude by tbolt
Had to post a little something....

I love work when people come up with an impossible task and then act like it is my problem that it requires more than five minutes to fix =x.x+ Pops gets his share of the joy working with the general public...

I really have to start drawing characters in perspective! ^^;

Friskella as always belongs to :iconspacewolfomega: (I guess she's tired of harrassing Roth for a while!)

Great drawing Tbolt. The expressions on Pops are really cool.

"What do you mean the crankshaft's not covered under a warranty?"

"What I mean, sir, is that if you run over a rock with your lawnmower and hit it, causing the blade to wrench around and yank the shaft out of alignment, that's not a manufacturer's defect and isn't covered."

"I want to speak to your manager."

^ Paraphrased from probably hundreds of conversations. So I know sorta what you go through. -.-

"Why am I being charged for an air filter?"
"Because it's an expendable part. It's DESIGNED to be replaced on a regular basis."

Of course it doesn't help the company I work for is run by retards, either. >.<

Yeah my first time dealing with a flat was something like the latter ... I had one friend who said he'd meet me in the parking lot after school to change it for me, but he never showed up. I figured if I drove real slowly, it could hobble to the gas station. That and another friend of mine didn't think it was a big deal and kept harrassing me to give him a ride home.

Now I know how to change a tire myself!

heh, good grief, and the rider didn't offer to help you with the spare?

Changing a tire usually isn't too difficult, just they sometimes do an outstanding job of hiding the necessary tools. Although, when you get that impact gunslinger that overtightens the lugs, it doesn't help much either! ^^; (I carry a 3' breaker bar in my trunk just in case I need to help someone...)

Although that is a twofold lesson you had there:

1. It is amazing how rapidly your car can shred a tire (and even kill the rim, aluminum sucks!)

2. If you really NEED to, you can still drive on a flat to get out of a bad situation.

Nope, he didn't offer to help at all! But being 14 or 15 at the time, I doubt he knew any more than I did. What really made me mad was that he lived less than half a mile from the school. Lazy sod ...

That tire though ... well, it didn't make it. But then, this was also the car that was the family hand-me-down for new drivers. I was third to inherit ol' Rustbucket. The stereo had been stolen, the AC didn't work, the automatic everything didn't work, and one morning in a fit of rage over the fact that the driver-side door was frozen shut, I managed to break the handle so I had to climb in from the passenger side. Yeah that was fun pulling into the gas station, hobbling on a shredded tire and having to get back in on the wrong side.

Hee, hee good grief! That sounds like the type of car that got me on a first name basis with the guys at the you-pull-it boneyard! =^^=

Now the vehicle I learned to drive in... Well, my dad's philosophy was "Stuff breaks" so the only reason our car had an AM radio was because he couldn't get one without a radio ("Who wants to listen to that crap when you're driving, anyways!")

Should I ever be priveliged to have children of my own, rest-assured, they shall also drive the most glorious beater to be found in the tri-state area! :D

Better yet, they'll have to earn the money to buy it themselves! :mwahaha:

Yeah I for one think that having that rustbucket as a first car helps to appreciate the first car you can buy with your own money a little more.

Also makes it easier to accept getting a ding or a scratch, since it just fits in with all the others quite nicely. :P

Not to mention that is is fun when you park next to that pristine Beemer and you see the look on the owner's face like your car is contagious! XD

Plus people get out of your way on the road (they know you have nothing to lose, nor any money to be sued for either!)

On top of it all, Friskella appears drunk, too. ^^;

I could understand why customers like her would lead him to be stressed.

Also, I like how expressive his ears are!

Hee, hee, it was originally some "dirt" from another layer in front of Frisky's head (remnants of an aborted speech balloon ^^; ) But then I said "What the heck, I see that in her character! =^^=

Thanks, anthros have a lot of nice appendages to help with portraying emotion, and it is fun to play with them! =^^=
