Why do the jobs that you think will take the least time always take forever?

 

I had to change the battery on the escort today so I thought it would take a maximum of 10-15 mins, you know disconnect the terminals, unscrew the securing bracket old battery out, new one in, bracket back in place terminals on, job done!.

 

Well 1.5 hours later i resorted to smashing the old battery to bits to get it out, then another 15 mins just unscrewing the bracket!!! Oh and a nice chunk of skin is now missing from my knuckles!! lovely! :vangry: :vangry: :vangry:

Tell me about it (see furniture thread) I've turned my bed around numerous times and know it can be done in 5 minutes,the bedroom is still a shittip with a ruined bed strewn accross it

 

Anyway....You split open a battery?

yeah I had to smash the lip off so I could get it past the bracket. I know it wasnt the cleverest thing to do but id had enough to be honest. kept my eyes closed tight incase any acid flew up!!
