    I thought the snowpocolyse was really going to kick my butt this year. Luckily it landed on a weekend and had minimal impact on sales!

It's the middle of January and so far we had weather that we normally get in April. It's been nice, and business has been steady.

First sleet/rain/snow mix of the year and the cars are finding the ditches all over town. And...the first one in my neighborhood... my boy. Took the pass. side outside mirror and the crushed the door, but other than that it's all fine. Wonderful way to start the season off.

So, what's wrong with a car with 255k on the dial, greasy hand prints all over it, and the engine is covered in gunky greasy slime. But, the owner says their regular mechanic thinks it's "electrical"...

    BTW, the battery is dead, the rotors are rusted, and the timing cover is off... ah, dah...

    I have that car in the shop. The dash is also torn apart. They thought it was electrical but it is actually a timing belt.

    Gonzo, When you hit the wall in your diagnosis...blame it on "Electrical"

A guy came in today and said, "The battery has to be recharged in my all electric car. Especially if I drive it a lot. I must have a battery drain then." Yes...I'm sure you do.

    Hey Gonzo...If I drive my car a lot, will I have to fill it up with gas again? Just asking.

What a week: Sales were great and so were the problems. Still trying to see if the sales outweighed the problems. All in a week's work. That's life!

I'd like to say I don't piss people off, but I do. I'm set up in my shop to do electrical repair...not engine work, such as major oil leaks...etc... I don't pull engines, headgaskets..etc.. but apparently I ticked this guy because "some guy" told him I did after I told him I don't. geez...

A small business owner was dismayed when a brand new corporate chain much like his own opened up next door and erected a huge sign which read BEST BLACK FRIDAY DEALS. He was horrified when another competitor opened up on his right, and announced its arrival with an even larger sign, reading LOWEST BLACK FRIDAY PRICES. The small business owner panicked, until he got an idea. He put the biggest sign of all over his own shop-it read... MAIN ENTRANCE.
