A vengeful hate filled engineer whose only way to get back at the world is with a lack of grease nipples.

Organizing some of my tools the last week or so I came across some extra heads of U-joints that were still in good shape. My old truck had a small lift kit in it with big tires and stick shift. I used to blow U joints all the time if it wasn't completely shot I would save the pieces. Lol

Problem with that is they need grease. If you don't grease them regularly then they will fail early. Sealed fittings last a long time if they can manage to stay sealed.

Biggest problem you get with zerk fittings is people get lazy and don't clean all the dirt out of them, they just push it in, and wear the joint out.

Sometimes you have to pull the fitting to get it clean.

Every dealership has a lube rack/lube man.

I'd watch that guy from the other end of the building jab the graco gun on, squeeze the trigger and watch the grease fly out. Blown seals, road crap driven into the zerk.

ka-chunk ka-chunk ka-chunk....

Happened to a friend of mine when we were driving home from another friend's cottage. But he killed the dog and pulled over, lady was absolutely freaking out, called the cops, waited for the police to arrive.

Police get there and asks what happened, tell him the truth, driving on the highway, dog jumped out in front of the car and got creamed. Cop tells the lady next time you get a dog don't let him run into traffic. Not sure what she expected the cop to do...

This one managed to push a door open. Normally there is another gate, but a neighbor was doing some work there and it was open.

Truck didn't slow down, stop, nothing. He saw the dog and had time to slow.
