Spark Plug Theif

The night before last some one stole one of my spark plugs. When I started it up it was missfiring pretty bad and sounded rough. I thought, Oh, s%#! how much is this going to cost. After all my Jeep seems to know when pay day is... After I got to work I noticed that the hood latches were unhooked. To my suprise and relief the front spark plug was missing. So after work I took it across the street to the mechanic $24 as opposed to $$$$$$. I now sleep with the window open and a heavy Maglite. WTF of all things to steal 1 spark plug.

It sounds to me like someone was just messing with you. Maybe like a prank.

TWENTY FOUR DOLLARS?????!!!!!!!!
Are you INSANE?

I didn't pay that much for a whole set of 6!
You could have gone to a parts house and picked one up and saved yourself some bucks.

Oh and the line "my Jeep seems to know when pay day is" - totally sig worthy!

Some people will steal anything. I have had my trash cans get stolen, and scrap metel from behind my garage. I caught that guy though, and scared him pretty good with my .357

I didn't want to drive across town with it missfiring and I don't have a tork wrench anymore. Early April Fools
