As an ex-mechanic myself I can only vouch for the bunch I worked with ...... most were ok, but the ones who had difficulty comunicating seemed to get themseves into this type of situation.

It does amuse me now when at any garage/fast-fit type of place, some of the bull you hear. I used to step in early on and let them know the situation, but now I let them hang themselves first. The looks on some of their faces .......

As others have said here, going armed with even a little knowledge is a great idea, don't accept anything that sounds dodgy - if it does either walk away or speak to someone else, and ask,ask ask


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
