Well, here's one that's sure to get a snicker at my expense, deservedly so ... Pouring, rainy Friday afternoon...I'm driving along with the wipers going and I get the typical "foreign object" between the wiper and the windshield. Lazy bum that I am, instead of stopping the car to get out and remove the object, I put the window down while driving, reach my hand around to pull the wiper up and let it go quickly - again, while driving - and *SNAP*...the sucker breaks off in my hand. So now I'm in the middle of my journey with no drivers-side wiper...in the middle of a cats and dogs rainstorm... D'OH!!! Thank God for Rainex!! Sooooooo...$150 and 5 minutes of labor later, I have a new drivers-side wiper arm. Not to mention the embarassment...like I said - D'OH!
