Dear Abby

Dear Abby: I just finished rebuilding my master cylinder and I have a piece left over. Why do manufacturers always use more parts than needed? Signed: Give me a brake.

Dear Give Me A Brake: It’s brakes, you moron. Do it again, and this time RTFM (read the f$^%$^# manual). Who let you loose with tools anyway? Signed: Abby.


  1. Reminds me of that old John Prine song Dear Abby where all her answers are the same...
    Bewildered, bewildered
    You have no complaint
    You are what your are and you ain't what you ain't
    So listen up buster, and listen up good
    Stop wishing for bad luck and knocking on wood
    Signed Dear Abby

    1. I'd forgotten about that song. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. The story of my life, always have some parts extra after getting the job done. lol

  3. Doh!! My grandpa did that with a piano once. Took it apart to get it into a basement and had a small pail of parts leftover. Still played so he never did fix it, lol.
