One morning a lady arrived at the service centre in her newish Austin 1100, she did not look happy. She said, “I have just come from the dealership with my two year old car, they told me I need some kind of new and expensive system installed. I know they are trying to rip me off just because I’m a women. I said Maam we would never do that here, what is the problem? She said there was is a strange noise coming from under the car. I had her drive it over the hoist where we found a leaking exhaust pipe. When I explained she had an exhaust leak she blanched. I knew it she said, I just knew it, you mechanics are all the same, always trying to rip me off just because I’m a woman. I was a bit surprised and ask her how she determined I was trying to rip her off. Well, I’m not stupid, if I had a leak on my car I would have seen a puddle in the driveway!!!!!.
After a $20 repair she drove off in a quieter car, and she was noticeably a little quieter too.
The joys of working in the automotive trade!!!!
God Bless and keep reading.
