Quick Count

I'm fine but last night had to take the car in for what I feared might be an expensive repair. As it turns out it was so minor the garage told me, "We're not charging you labor. Just tip the guy who did the work." So my count is a cheap, simple repair and friendly service. Life was just a bit crazy today with needing to ferry people around and not having wheels, hence my extreme lateness in posting.

I count those every time especially in the present economy. Wonderful (money saving) count! Cheers!

That is wild. It warms the heart that there are still businesses out there that aren't just looking to stick it to the public every chance they get. :D

I hate how I have to rely on my car so much. Being without can really screw up your day.

Glad you found a good garage. I'm still looking!

The start of school down here has also has me providing taxi services as well. Making matter worse I somehow have to avoid my son's now ex-girlfriend while driving who shows up at the same events.

"Just tip the guy who did the work." Does your mechanic moonlight as a saint?
