The Window Won't Go Up

This last Saturday hubby and I went shopping as usual. No big deal, it just the same old routine, except that the weather has changed and it was quite warm in the car.

So my hubby being the gentleman he is lowers the window on my side of the car (It is electrical). Don't get excited this is an older car and that is about it for the fancy stuff. Anyway, the cool air felt wonderful.

However, when my hubby went to close the window, the window would not go up. It would not budge. He took about an hour, maybe it was two, cussing and swearing at the window while he worked on it. Needless to say the window motor went out on the passenger side.

He endures the 30 degree temps driving to work with the passenger side open for about a half day. He sends me a text that says, "hey, can you order a window motor from Geek Parts if they are reasonable. This morning was really cold going down the road with the window up."

I chuckled under my breath because I had that happen with my car when we went to a wedding. And that open window was really cold. Anyway, I ordered it and hopefully it will be at our doorstep by the end of the week. Hm-m, I wonder how long it will be before hubby asks to use my car? I'll give him until Wednesday before he starts the complaining.

They never seem to break at a convenient time. I hope it gets there fast

Sometimes we will open the car window instead of using the air conditioner. But when we hit the interstate, the windows do go up.

We ordered the part. I was hoping it would be here today. But the FexEx guy has already come and gone. So I bet it will be Monday before we see it.
