Reseting the Clock on my Mercedes (too funny)

Here's a snipit of an email I received from a Mercedes Dealer offering a complimentary clock reset, for my Mercedes,,,
It's in the diesel thread because my 1985 300SD is a diesel.
The only change I photoshopped in is the Mespe, honest.

Have you seen the clock reset manual for a new S class? It's 4 volumes and supplemented with a DVD for special cases.

I've decided that the analog clocks don't get reset. They live on daylight time and the operator will use the digital display on the radio for standard time....................

I denounce daylight savings time, and live on real time all year round.

Everybody else is wrong for half the year.

I have an Authorized Mercedes Dealership Technician start my car every morning. I still don't have that down. It's SO good to have a worry-free car...

Brian,
There is a procedure called "Groinus Patella" AKA a knee in the crutch that will have a similar effect, saves carrying a brick every where !!

It appears that the latest title that is used is "Technician", they used to use the title "Professional" all the time.
I often wonder what will be the next title they use for these so called "experts". When all is said & done its hard to come up with a nonsense name for some one who is fully qualified to "pick his nose in public" !

I've done that a couple of times. I figured that since I was already used to getting up, I may as well continue.

My coworkers used to get upset when they'd look at my watch & think they were late for an appointment.

That`s the bait to chum you in, once the hook is set, your cooked.

then they find other things your car is in need of ........


Analog clocks are great, just turn the knob.

Like the Becker radio my 85 came with, pages and pages of how to make it work . I had no idea of what I was reading.

Give me an old Analog radio, turn the knob on, then turn the dial and move the needle where I want it. simple, no electronics.
