Little story from the weekend. Drove an hour and a half to pick up some new roof bars for my Honda CeR-Vix. Yes, the nearest Honda dealer is an hour and a half away. So I picked up the bars and drove over to Canadian Tire to pick up some new tools for the installation. CT parking lot is as good as my driveway so I figure I’ll do it right there and make sure everything is alright before heading home. I pop off the roof caps that cover the installation points and grab a bar from the box they came in. Driver’s side fits perfect. Passenger side and the bar appears to be two inches too short. God Damnit! I loosen all the screws thinking that maybe the bars extend to fit. Nope. It’s just too damn short. They gave me the wrong roof bars, those IDIOTS. Well, I better check the rear bar and see if that one’s screwed up too. Take that one out and line up the driver’s side. Everything’s fine here. On the passenger side? TWO INCHES TOO LONG!!! THOSE F’N MORONS! How is it conceivably possible that you can screw up SO badly that you don’t just give a guy two roof bars that are both too short or both too long but have ONE too long and ONE too short? What kind of BRAINLESS, ASS-CHIMP would….
Maybe I’ll try the long bar at the front and the short one at the back….
They fit perfectly.
And now I notice they have even marked one as FRONT so you don’t confuse the two.
Ummm, good job Honda!
Oh, and then later on I tossed an awesome lure into the middle of a lake because I apparently don’t know how to tie a knot either.
