schadenfreude: (whatever)

January 18, 2017 - Do you ever watch how-to videos on YouTube? Tell us about a lesson you learned from watching a video.

A few months ago, I noticed that the front left and rear right turn signal bulbs were out on my Little Blue CarĀ©. After a thorough Google search, I found which bulbs I needed, and a video at YouTube showing me how quick and easy it is to replace them.

Early one Sunday morning, I headed to O'Reilly's, spoke with three engaging, helpful young men, who found and sold me the bulbs. They assured me the video was correct, I could have it done in no time.

LIARS!!

Watching the video a second time, I was able to locate the sockets and remove the old bulbs. However, after dropping one of the replacement bulbs down into the engine compartment, a second trip to O'Reilly's to replace the wasted bulb, losing skin on most of my knuckles, and burning a pea sized blister on my right wrist, I finally had to ask Josh to help.

On the bright side, Josh managed to get everything back in order, and I didn't break any fingernails...
