I'm so excited! I finally got my 20 posts.... Just so I can see if any members have had this happen to them or know of anyone, or have heard of this.
I was unsure on where to post this so mods can move if you please.
I bought a CD player for my car, from the pawn shop, last Saturday. I was told "Oh yeah it'll match your wires, it's easy, just clip the wires and
twist them together." So I purchase it and keep it in the car for a couple of days, before attempting
to install it myself. I wait until it
cools off, the suns going down, and I start clipping away. I look at the label, stuck to the bottom of the deck, which shows which colored wire is for
what. It had 4 columns. The first column showed the color(s) and the second the function. Same with the 3rd and 4th (colored continued, function
It's getting a little darker out, so I turn on my overhead light. I'm looking at this label, and it's another language. No English, whatsoever on
that label. So I kind of get upset, of course I can't understand. I can understand and read Spanish and therefore some French, but it didn't look
Dutch or German. I saw a couple of words gris
; which I assumed meant gray and white.
So I look up on a search engine, what language it is first, so I can translate them all. I go to type in a word, and look back down at the label, and
IT'S IN ENGLISH ! Literally NO OTHER LANGUAGE on there but English. I didn't too much freak out, because I'm more so feeling a change. But I've
never heard of anything like that. I wasn't tired. I had my 4 year old son in the car with me, and I had no alcohol, drugs, or medications in my
system (had to throw that in there for clarity).
So has anyone ever had this happen to them? Or heard of what had happened? All opinions are welcome. I also found out after searching later that
night, that the language was French-Creole. (Bahamas and Haiti area) I've had a genealogy report ran, and the farthest we traced our ancestors, on my
father's side, was to Haiti.... Don't know if that has any relation...
***I returned it today, because I couldn't install it. And as soon as I typed the first 3 words I remembered that I was going to take a picture of
the label, to link here, so you all could get a clearer picture.... But of course I forgot! If it helps I can go back to the store and take a picture
of this label.
