SERVICE(!) and Saving Gas
So I lose the stinking gas cap to my riding mower yesterday and ordered a new one from Fernbridge Tractor and Equipment as they're the John Deere dealers up here. They didn't have one in stock but said they'd order one for me.
As I always do when ordering something from them, I asked them to ship it to me. Why bother driving to Fernbridge, especially for a silly gas cap? Shipping costs might well be less than the gas, not to mention taking the time to drive down there. Works well for me.
This was the best delivery, though. I ordered that cap just before noon yesterday. It arrived this morning, although whoever delivered it dropped it off next door. Not bad, huh? An order from Stockton (at least I think that's where they said they order from) and it got here in less than 24 hours.
They have a lawnmower service special going on right now. I should probably take advantage of that one myself.
