    Horrible Pics From the Car Installation Profession

    I have been doing car electronics isntallation for a long time now, and I can't believe the audacity some people have in regard to the condition of their vehicles when they bring them in to have work performed. There have been times when I almost gagged--I have seen dirty underwear (with skidmarks), ancient food, live roaches (yes, the insect) and other things that I would really prefer not to have seen. Here are some real pictures from my job that I took with our shop Polaroid.

    The back seat, complete with child seat. Notice the area under the front seat that they were nice enough to clean so I could work there.

    The moral behind all this is probably obvious to most people, but please, please, please CLEAN YOUR CAR BEFORE YOU BRING IT IN!
    All right, my rant is over for now, but I may have more later...

    I wish it was always that easy. Dealing with people in general is far worse.

    but dude seriously. when i work on my boys car i start yelling at him if he has his school books or gym shoes in the trunk or back seat. the car has to be completely empty when i work so its easier that way. thats not only unhealthy but it doesnt promote for the best job you can possibly do.

    When I worked at the Chrysler dealer, I received a work order for a mid 90's mini-van with a steering complaint.
    So, I grab the keys, find the truck and hop in for a road test.
    About 2 minutes into my drive, I am greeted by the most horrible smell my nostrils ever had to endure. It was a hot summer day, about 90-92 and humid.
    As I continue driving, the smell is gagging me to the point I couldn't breathe.
    So, as I am looking around for the source, I look down between the front and rear seats, and there was my problem.....a fresh steaming pile of puke. WTF??? man, I could not drive fast enough back to the shop.
    I jumped out of the van, tossed the keys to my service mamager and told him to tell the customer to not come back. He asked why, and I showed him. Needless to say, we never saw that truck, or customer again.

    but yea it needs to be clean before I install or work on something
    - sh_tty underware yuck I would have charged them more

    I did find dirty socks inside a computer once - dead rats, mice
    roaches "both kinds" one time a bad of weed , and once a crack
    pipe still have it - it was in a old computer that we got from a shop
    that closed down, keep it just for laughs
