    so today i got some break work done on the dodge had em do an oil change while it was there. so they got this new16 year old kid working there as the shop bit*h he changes the oil goes to start the truck up and let it run for a sec, now mind you my trucks a 5-speed he didnt notice the truck was in first and popped the clutch out and jumped it right off the front of the lift into their alignment machine destroyed the alignment machine and beat my front bumper up pretty good. alo apparently the alignment machine costs about 40k lol

    kid went into shock and didnt say a word. i just happined to be there when this all happined and saw the whole thing i went into shock for a sec then just started laughing i also took a few pics to remember this by.

    Almost had that happen this last year in the highschool auto shop. Had a kid start a manual s10 so another kid could check something and the kid in the drivers seat put the truck in 2nd (didn't know stick shift neutral is side to side, not up and down) and pop the clutch. Luckily the wheel chocks killed the truck and it only moved forward about 8". If it left the lift it would have destoryed a workbench and the alignment machine.


    Glad to hear no one was hurt and your getting your truck all fixed.
