The public

I was over at my mate's workshop getting some new tyres on the EH.
A bloke drives his car into the workshop, opens the bonnet and asks if someone can remove the engine cover so he could put some spark plus in. He couldn't do it because it had "those hexagon things" in it.
So my mate finished his conversation with the paying customer while this bloke stood impatiently with one hand on the open bonnet.
My mate got his allen keys and undid the two screws. As the bloke left my mate smiled and said that he'd be back in 10 minutes because there were two more allen screws to remove to get at the spark plugs.
Sure enough, 20 minutes later the bloke came back and meekly asked how much it would cost to put the spark plugs in for him.

Good to see someone teach respect to a person that had none.Geez if he can't remove an engine cover he's got no hope of putting plugs in!...

Ignoring the fact that some clown couldn't do it himself ( just WOW :-O ) , the handyman was value for money, he screwed the rail and the dumb chop who called him.

Funny sounds like my brother in law, he's a solicitor. Doesn't mind reminding everyone too. Couldn't hang a painting on the wall. Hopeless.

When I worked on the council (Parks & Gardens, not political) years ago, I nearly put my whipper snipper in to be sharpened on one April Fool's Day just for a laugh. But thought nah, they might get shirty on me.. I shoulda done it.

Or ask Supercheap for a fuel pump for a Holden red six.
He said they only had 3 left and showed me 3 electric fuel pumps.
I said no, they won't fit, it's a mechanical pump.
The look of astonishment on his face was gold. Then he asked how old it was, probably expecting me say something like Burke & Wills used it on their expeditions.
Our EH is 55 years old, probably older than his grandfather.

Old is good.

When super cheap send you an email on how they can better help you with service,
I send back “I’d like to be served by someone with a open driver license”

I asked for some pinch weld the other day and was sent to the aisle with the welding gear. I came home and ordered it on the internet instead.
