Default Who wants to hear the definition of dumb effing luck?

Physics defies itself yet again in order to drive me freaking nuts.

I get back from lunch, go to close my moonroof... wiiiirr THUNK.

Stops about an inch from fully closed. I roll it back and try it again, does it again... there is a freaking PEBBLE jammed into the front lip of the track on the moonroof itself. It's getting caught up on the screw that holds in the little wind deflector that pops up.

How does that even HAPPEN?! I got stuck behind some redneck in a dually towing a DEAD COW in a trailer (no, I'm not kidding... you stay classy, Goodyear) and I think it flew off the trailer.

Sigh... God hates me. It's going to take some serious inginuity (or a trip to the dealer to get my roof dismantled) to get this out.

God loves you he is just testing you. They have ninjas at the dealership that can get their hands in thr track and pull out the pebble.

Haha... yeah. If my idea of a hook-shaped wire coat hanger device doesn't work, off to Avondale I go.
