My Antenna is broke

Get this for crazy breakage action..... I was listening to the radio and stop at the shops for a coke. When i stop the car the ariel goes down to bottom (it is electric ED type with the half/full extend switch) and goes click and proceeds trying to go down.

This repeats for like 2-3 minutes until the computer goes, hang on this must be rooted or something, and stops. If you spaz enough to try and turn it on it does the same at the full position, wont stop at half at all, with the added bonus of having it finally go down and do the formentioned.

What on the arial has broken has anyone got any ideas or sim experiences

Did we waste our education funding dollars here??

The future tense of happy is happier.
Aerial is the correct spelling of the word.
You can't be bothered "fixing" it. "though"
If you spaz enough?????
Words like can't and don't have that little thing between the n and the t called an apostrophe.

Oh dear, oh dear.

I will assume you are trying to be funny.

By the way - (1) it is don't worry, not done worry.
(2) the word is pedantic.

No, not at all sorry. I am not the worlds best speller and neither are a lot of us. Some of us do need to take a lot more care, but I think putting commas on the can'ts etc and dotting the "i's" is going a bit far sometimes. Take cheap shots if you want. Ill go back and edit my post if it bothers you that much.

Regards Karl

Doesn't bother me THAT much ... the point is more about taking a little more care. Makes the posts easier to read for everyone that way.
