I had someone turn mine off while we took the dog for a walk around the campground. I got the hint.

Details Please!

Classic with pure cane sugar - or high fructose corn syrup?
Can Pepsi substitute?

Where's the "like" button when you need one?

Stick a carrot or potato in the exhaust where it's a snug fit and up far enough where it can't be seen. It will kill the motor and they won't figure out why it won't start. An old hotrodders trick Doesn't do any long term harm, remove the plug and it will start again.

I was thinking of posting a "like", with the comment "Oh, the stories we could tell".
Then Dave breaks the silence with this:
"6th grade, mean health and P.E. Teacher, 54 DeSoto. Potato out of the garden. Safe now, Mr. Weepie is running laps in Hell.
Dave"

So, there was the obnoxious college roommate who couldn't understand why his Chevelle quit running. We got a meal in payment for "fixing" it.
