WOW it has been a while scents the last time I have updated my LJ. I need to really start making postings and not wait so long. Well I got back home to WI Jan 10th. I spent a month with my parents helping them move into the new house. I even got to spend 1 night at the place by myself. I told them I wanted to at least stay one night at the new place. In return I cleaned the house up a bit scrubbing the bathrooms and kitchen. |
Well on Jan 9th I got an e-mail from the airbag people. They said that my order was being worked on and that they would get back to me very soon. 2 months later and 6 e-mails asking what is going on I still have not heard back from them. I am getting tired if not hearing back from them. I have sent many e-mails just asking for an update on what was going on. So I have decided to call it quits between them and I. I sent an e-mail telling them that I was not happy with how things was going and that I did not want the airbag form them and that they lost a potential customer down the road.
Last Thur night I was talking to a friend online. We talked about airbags for a bit and how they work. He then IM's saying that there is one on ebay. My first thought was starting bid was $2,000 or more dollars. The last few times they have had airbags on ebay they started out at $3,000. When I looked up the auction I was surprised that starting bid was $9.95. I placed a bid not thinking that I would get it. Well Friday rolled around and I checked the bidding. 2h left and still 1 bid (mine). Started to get a little nerves for I wanted to win the auction but deep down I had that feeling that I was going to get sniped at the last sec. 30m left in the auction and I kind of started to get excited and hopping to win but still had that feeling I was going to lose. 5sec left and I hot the refresh button. YOU ARE THE WINNER was said at the top of the screen. I was almost bouncing off the walls I was so happy. I got a $4,000 airbag for only $10. When I went ot pick it up I told them they could keep the nickel :). Sat and Sunday I was happy for I had won something I have always wanted for 26 years now. Monday I went to pick up the airbag on the south side of IL. Around trip the drive took 10 hours. I feel that it was well worth the drive. I now have a nice real stunt airbag to land on when doing falls at night at the local school. I will be taking pics and video of the airbag when the weather starts to get nice again in a few days.
