Now That's Service

I got a call the other day from my car dealer. They were offering assistance to change the clock in my Volkswagen for Daylight Saving Time.

No thanks. I got this one.

My car has two little buttons next to the clock. One says "H" and the other "M". I figured out what they mean a while back.

The Jeep is a different story. It goes something like this:
  1. Turn off the radio.
  2. Press and hold the "Time" button until the hour starts flashing.
  3. Using the tuner dial, select the correct number by turning the dial left or right.
  4. Press the "Time" button again. The minutes are still wrong because the clock is slow.
  5. Repeat step 2.
  6. Push the forward and backward buttons to try to change to the minutes.
  7. Fail.
  8. Repeat steps 1 and 2.
  9. Rotate the volume knob.
  10. Fail.
  11. Give up. For now. Turn the radio back on.
  12. Realize the clock is now 7 minutes slow.
  13. Repeat steps 1 and 2.
  14. Try to remember how Tabitha did it in October.
  15. Remember.
  16. Push down on the tuner dial and release to change to the minutes.
  17. Once the minutes are flashing select the correct number by turning the dial left or right
  18. Press the tuner button again.
  19. Turn on the radio.
  20. Vow to remember for next time.

Easy right? Maybe the next time I will read the manual.

The manual is for sissies. MEN must never succumb to the temptation to read the "Manual." Step back, take a deep breath and try again if you must.

So, where does that come from...pride?

Simple: This Fall, get the Volkswagen guy to come out and set the clock in your Jeep.

I miss the Mini Cooper, man...
