`Twas the night before Christmas at AutoShopOwner

Recommended Posts

`Twas the night before Christmas and all through the dark
Not a car was still broken, all those plugs had there spark
Wrenches were stashed all snug in there boxes
While me by myself was having Christmas party leftovers, some bagels and loxes
Out in the lot there was such a clatter
I sprang to my feet and yelled Hey what's the matter!
Now what to my blood shot tired eyes should appear
But some crazy old guy with sleigh with reindeer
He approached the front door with a smile so bright
I quickly unlocked it and turned back on the office light
Excuse me kind sir but I am having some trouble
The left rudder on my sleigh has started to rumble
The balancing was wrong pulling much to the right
Those reindeer have been working too hard, this cold night
I have so much to do and little time to do it
Could you could please get right too it!
Without saying a word I went to work right away
Too bad the alignment machine had no specs for a sleigh
Meanwhile the reindeer were prancing around
That Rudolf and comet what a couple of clowns
In a matter of time the rudder was straight and the alignment done too
I helped him load up all the presents, but one
He wanted to pay me, but cash he had none
I hope it was from Sears a one half inch air gun
He started the sleigh by calling their names
Come now, Dasher! , Prancer and Blitzen!
Get off your butts Comet and Vixen!
It started to idle and float in the air
Then Rudolf lit up the sky with his nose extraordinaire
I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
Happy Christmas to '
AutoShopOwner', and to all a good-night!

    • Broken Parts

      Are you guys charging your techs for parts they break? In the past we have never made our techs pay for something they broke, the shop did and talked to the tech about what they need to do to prevent this in the future. It's getting old though. 2 weeks ago one young tech back a mirror into a pole so we bought a new mirror. This week, a different tech while removing a fuel tank, didn't discount the fuel lines on top first and ended up dropping the tank too fast and broke the fuel sending unit. On this truck that is a $300+ part that we are now eating on a $500 ticket. I want to tell the tech he is responsible, and will have to pay the shop back for the part. What say you?
