Ah, now I see what you're saying.
Had to test the trunk lock actuator on (Devious21) Rick's car last weekend since it wasn't opening with the key even though the remote worked fine. Just used my finger to push the lock closed.
Why would anyone close the door/lid first without testing?

My Ride: is totaled
Just returned the ssd to best buy
On my way out, bought some chocolate from a high school cheerleader who is selling them for fundraiser
Mmm
Good chocolate
It is not the chocolate with the white paper wrapped around that everyone and their mother sells
But it is more expensive (2 for $5)

That's a pain. Did it bend the rail out of shape?

no, luckily the rails are okay. The issue we are having right now is correctly aligning the door. when it moves it goes up crooked. the panels have to be moved left/right. we had to jump the wheels back in and everything. luckily my dad was home when t happened. otherwise i would have been SOL

Slightly richer, and not hungry. Doesn't sound bad.
