Kind of like when I went into the Harley shop to pick up some gaskets, filter and fluids. The guy took most of my money and I told him he almost broke me. "He said we weigh you when you come in the door so we know how much money you are holding on you".

I just need five minutes alone with that block. But I'd prefer to flog it unmercifuly after being installed in my car.
