Ordered an item from overseas. I was just wondering if anyone can explain the second line in this tracking history for me. It says clearance delay at Richmond, BC.
Did the item get to Richmond and then get sent back out to Memphis? Or am I not understanding something here.

10/04/2014 3:15 AM RICHMOND, BC V7B1L5, CA Clearance delay - Import

The last one is probably a late scan that appeared after the Richmond one happened to me before

What did you order?

Seems like customs was suspicious, seized it and sent it to Memphis for further "investigation"

..Just my guess though. Hope you get your package!

OK OK

I've started taking public transit this year because it's too damn expensive to park downtown

My question is... when did this whole "lining up for the bus" thing start? Back in the day when I was going to university and high school, no one lined up

When was this rule implemented? It's really strange to me....

I don't think it's a "rule" it's just etiquette

Since the common courtesy rule was implemented.

RE: University, everyone should have had a upass so it didn't matter. Outside of that people have to pay or scan their proof of purchase, hence the line up.

You got bitched out for trying to skip the line by people lining up, didn't you?

Bus stop lineups are dumb. I should be able to sit down if I want to while waiting for the bus.

For those of you with lowered cars, which part of the undercarriage do you notice the most scrape? Right now my plastic skid guard is taking it like a champ but I think I might need to cut a metal one to reinforce it

No, but I admit to being a sheeple when I noticed the line up.... I didn't even question and I just lined up....

It's just so strange to me because I was so used to back in the day when everyone would just crowd in...

Memphis is a Fedex hub.

It is probable that the actual paperwork get fastforwarded ahead of time or the item arrived too late to clear.

If the package arrive after the shipment guarantee, you usually get money back.

I guess this is the reason why you never park in front of a fire hydrant.



"Firefighters arriving on the scene busted the windows of a BMW that was parked in front of a fire hydrant so they could run a hose through it to fight the fire. They sprayed down the roofs of the wood-frame triple-deckers as a throng of people looked on."

Bonus 1 - Anyone who sees it will be reminded that their shit could get fucked up if they park like an asshole.

Bonus 2 - Owner of the car had to wait there, in shame, while the firefighters did their thing and either won't get covered by insurance or if he does, premiums will go way up.

Anyone know if Work has a replacement wheel lock key for their RS lug nuts? Or any other branded wheel lock key that fits the RS lock nuts?
It's this set Work Wheels :: Products :: Lug Nuts

They're 7-spline but I'm not sure the exact size for them. Lost my wheel lock key like a noob

Has anyone ever gotten this parking ticket from city?

"Stop/Park within 1.5m of private road or lane"

I didn't even know this by-law exist until now...

I parked in front of someone's house, i didn't block the drive way. in fact, they had garbage can on the curb so my car was parked, garbage can and some away from the drive way.
No "no parking" sign, no yellow mark on the curb, there isn't even side walk.

I see so many parked cars right next to curb, yet never seen anyone get ticketed...

the house owner probably got pissed and called city-hall, cuz it might been hard to see the traffic when coming out of his drive way...
ah well...
