Broken bolt

(Sigh) Life is sometimes like a job with broken bolt. You start off perfectly prepared, organized, and capable of completing what is set before you. The the unexpected happens, a bolt twist off while you are giving it your all. What was supposed to take minutes now takes hours and even days. Of course one bolt shouldn't take days to remove but depending on where it is, what else you have to take apart to get at that broken bolt, how and what you have to use to extract it, very likely minutes will add up . Sometimes those bolts don't come out or you break something getting it out or apart, sometimes the threads are ruined and are not repairable. The part may need replacing and if you don't have one on hand where you get it from may not and it has to be ordered if it is available. So yes sometimes days. How often in life do we take people or things "going right" for granted? #Morals of the #story: Expect the unexpected. Even when you do everything right, something can go wrong. It happens to the best off us. Don't let things get you down. Don't give up. It's not your fault if something breaks when your trying to fix things. It will stay broken if you do nothing. Be greatful even if something tends to go wrong. You can make it better so get started
