  1. Talk to the major parts vendors and ask them who they know that may want to consider retiring or selling.
  2. One of my employees son was working as a dish washer. When the virus hit he was getting almost $900 on unemployment take home pay per week which is more than any of my employees typical take home. Doesn't make a lot of sense but no one ever said that our Washington politicians have much sense. They have no trouble giving away our money.
  3. And I will not consider a system that isn’t in the clouds because it simplifies hardware needs and eliminates backup issues.
  4. My Grandson Ezra May age 9.
  5. We have not worn masked since this began but our mayor and council have passed an ordinance requiring them in indoor areas beginning Wednesday. I will ask my guys to wear them when pulling cars in and out or when around a customer. I frankly don't expect them to wear them while working in the shop in this heat. I will ask the counter personnel and myself to wear them at least when a customer is in the waiting area. It is going to be a real pain when talking on the phone.
  6. Business here has been strong for the last 8 weeks.
  7. I am looking at this one and considering changing. It seems to be system of choice with many of the Facebook group. https://www.tekmetric.com/?utm_campaign=Newsletter&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=90611462&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-8EaPf_z-A-CkXytJQzHfTLZ5wmNd6PaLNR4j_KZro3OdDI2kp_ir2SGiUS-JmxrMnaaJHC-8m-KJrtG-Bzdn76tEtFww&utm_content=90611462&utm_source=hs_email
  8. The biggest change we have made is to eliminate Saturday hours for the time being. It has made life easier and reduced staffing needs. So far I think it may yield more positives than the revenue lost. I had been thinking about this before the crisis. There are many reasons that I had considered it. (1)It makes it easier to hire help. Saturday hours are unpopular. (2)Parts availability on Saturdays is limited. Some dealers are closed and all the parts stores operate with the B team. (3)Parts delivery time on Saturday is very slow. (4)I am too old and don't want to work Saturdays.
  9. I have considered it but really don't want to. If push comes to shove I may do it. I personally find the shields are a real nuisance when conducting business. I dislike having to talk through them or pass money under them. Many of them are mounted too low with inadequate clearance in my book. I have also noticed that a lot of people go to the end and pass money around them and talk around them.
  10. Me neither! I have only had one R1234 car this summer.
  11. What a heart throb! I meant the car?
