Wholesome Mechanic Helps Woman Who Got a BS Quote

Usually if you hear a retail story it's gonna be about how horribly entitled a customer is. However, this time it's about a customer who seriously needed help and found exactly the right person in a mechanic on a slow day.

Dumb Things People Did to their Own Cars

Here are stories, mostly from mechanics, who had to witness the aftermath of people's horrible automobile decisions. Some out of negligence, some from people who wanted their car to look cool and put form over function, and others who were just plain stupid. People are pretty ignorant about their own automobiles.

Dude Gets Screwed By Mechanic, Takes It Up With Owner And Gets Results

It's pretty rare that people manage to solve stuff like this so gracefully. And what's really surprising is that the owner was on his side. He must have hated the manager already. Sometimes people stick up for themselves and get results, like this bicyclist who got hist by a jerk driver.
