Waiting for "The Guy" really sucks, no matter if it is a repair, installation, or a delivery. Grr or a car switch in my case.

Oh, guess what...

*Waits for a response before realizing this isn't a chat room*

I got trapped in my work vehicle's seat belt this morning at a busy gas station.

It wouldn't unbuckle when I moved to get out and pump some gas!!! My coworker drove on by, thinking that my waving him down was a "go ahead" gesture and so I had to call my boss (would have had to call him anyway) about it. I had sat there for a few minutes just pushing, pulling, and attempting to get free.

Bound and determined not to be stuck anymore or worse, be sitting there when my boss arrived, I had an idea. After I slipped the chest belt over my head and behind me, I then tugged out all the belt to give slack to the lap belt and then wiggled out the bottom and out of the truck. I was just glad I could squeeze out!

So bossman and I switched trucks when my boss got there, and I caught up on the first half of the 5-hour drive with my coworker.

That was so weird!!!

stuck seatbelt--that's weird and freaky-scary! What if you'd been in an accident and couldn't get out while the vehicle was on fire? OK, maybe I watch too much tv, but it can happen. Hope the boss gets it fixed right away. And, hope the rest of the drive was uneventful

He took it to a mechanic who pushed and wiggled it as well. Basically he pushed down hard enough on the clip after a few tries that when he pushed down the buckle it freed itself, and that was that. The verdict is that it's a tricky latch. e.e;;; So no fixing.

But yeah, I thought that too, Ronnie, but I'll be heading south again to drop that vehicle off to another office, so I'll warn 'em about my tricky encounter with that Dodge truck. With our office move so close, unfortunately it'll be up to them to figure out if they want to replace it.

A tricky latch? I love it when people really don't know what is wrong and they make something up...put a NEW SEAT BELT in!!

it ended up costing me $50...

but I got my name on 5 golf balls to be dumped by a helicopter over a hole...

Ok, EZ, you must explain-was it the drywalling that cost the $50 or the cost of the golf balls-are you hoping to win something with those golf balls being dropped over a hole?

Good morning, everyone!

I am on a committee planning a silent auction. We will have a barbecue, entertainment with a country theme followed by the auction , anybody have experience with such an event ? We are hoping for some big ticket items to be donated to be bid on, such as a car or cruise. This is a fundraiser for a senior citizens activity group and we want to raise at least$16,000.00 (the mimimum, we would like more ).

Well, my stove works. Yay. Not too terribly expensive either, so that was a surprise.

Zan - I can't even imagine why they wouldn't replace the seatbelt. So, if it is too "tricky" again, you just have to stay inside?

Yay, Slashnl! I love it when the repairs actually work!

Gary, do you get to keep the golfballs afterwards? Sounds like it might be fun to watch, nonetheless!

I dunno, Bargoo, the only thing I've done similar is a bake goods or craft sale.

I'm just hoping that the other office or where ever it will end up have skinner Janes and Joes than my office or will get it replaced! But it was kind of fun to see if I could wiggle right on out instead of just sit there. I took the same car down today and had no trouble with the latch the few times I had to release it, but I wore a less baggy shirt just in case,

Gary, I thought that it might have been tampered with, by accident. Like something fell into the slot and made it stick. But I completely ignored the rest of the world after my coworker left me at the gas station. Instead, I did what a modern-day damsel-in-distress should do, and rescued my own dang self!

(+1 to escape artist.)

Yes I have been involved with an auction for charity. We have one every year for our Christmas for Kids (like Toys for Tots) You are only having a silent auction? Wow if you can find someone to donate a car or a cruise...that is AWESOME! You have to think about how much someone will pay for those items. We do a regular auction. We have done some silent auction items during the event...but now we do some raffle items instead of the silent items. Our silent items weren't going over well...for various reasons. I will be more than happy to share more information with you if you would like! Good Luck!

We have been involved with several...#1 ~ serve plenty of alcohol #2 ~ serve plenty of alcohol and #3 Serve them all the booze they want....the $$$$$$ will just keep on coming! I also advise having a real auction too if you have enough items. My daughter and son in law raised $24,000 in one night for a child with cancer...a lot of work and a lot of HELP!!!
