I thought I found the best situation in the world when I started using our current mechanic.
He was our former neighbor’s son who had just finished a stint in trade university studying to be a vehicle mechanic plus worked most afternoons at a tire plus lube business in our small town. After doing such a nice task replacing our brakes for me once, I hired him for more plus more vehicle related repair plus repair tasks. He successfully updated the radiator in an seasoned vehicle of mine that our wifey wanted to sell to a junkyard. Then every one of us had another extra vehicle to supply to our teenagers to use whenever they wanted to. While our teenagers didn’t want to drive an seasoned car, it was better than not having a single at all. Unfortunately, this young mechanic didn’t work out for the best as time went on. He made a upscale error when trying to update a catalytic converter in our SUV plus it forced me to take the vehicle to an extravagant auto shop to fix the error. When I wanted the kid to update the air conditioner a few weeks later, he outright refused. He hadn’t updated an air conditioner compressor in a vehicle before plus he was sad about making a mistake with the upgrade process; I supply him credit for acknowledging his limitations plus having the courage plus maturity to refuse a task he couldn’t successfully do on his own. Sadly, it meant that our wifey plus I had to spend money more than every one of us expected to get the car’s air conditioner fixed in the long run.
