I agree. If we'd stop protecting idiots from themselves, eventually maybe there'd be fewer of them. I know, wishful thinking.

And we'd damn sure not need labels tell people to remove clothes before ironing...

Exactly.

Got my URO door lock pin grommets in. Will install later. Also got my LHS rear tail light gasket from FCP. Don't need one yet, but wanted to lock in my lifetime replacement as they had it on clearance for ~$10 (normal is $30+). Now I wait until the RHS gasket goes on clearance.
