     When I know I am on the right about something, i am very persistent in
getting things done correctly. Hopefully, I don't have to make a fuss to get it
done. If I do, then I will do it. On one occassion I got into a heated
arguement with service manager at Sears about an inspection sticker. It's a
long story, so I won't get into it here, but I knew I was right and I refused
to move until I got my inspection sticker. Eventually, the manager gave up and
I had the sticker. 
     It's only when I'm not fully informed or completely knowledgeable on a
subject that I hesitate. As in this case. I do plan on going back to Sears
because the tech's explaination didn't sit right. It's been rumbling around my
brain since the alignment, hence the post to the list. You are correct.

     Here is a question for you: Is being a  "self-professed thrifty college 
student" a bad thing? It sounded a little negative.
