I thought I found the best situation in the world when I started using my new mechanic.
- He was my former neighbor’s child who had just finished a stint in trade school reading to be a car mechanic plus worked most afternoons at a tire plus lube supplier in our small town.
After doing such a enjoyable task replacing my brakes for myself and others once, I hired him for more plus more car related repair plus repair tasks. He successfully upgraded the radiator in an ancient car of mine that my wife wanted to sell to a junkyard. Then both of us had another extra car to provide to our teenagers to use whenever they wanted to. While our teenagers didn’t want to drive an ancient 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 costly error when trying to upgrade a catalytic converter in my SUV plus it forced myself and others to take the car to an costly auto shop to repair the error. When I wanted the kid to upgrade the cooling system a few months later, he outright refused. He hadn’t upgraded an cooling system compressor in a car before plus he was anxious about making a mistake with the upgrade process, but i provide 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 my wife plus I had to pay more than both of us expected to get the car’s cooling system fixed in the long run.
