  • I had to laugh

    I was reading this auto repair thread on fascistbook and a guy posted that he broke a plug in his 5.4 (sadly a common thing) and some chick pipes in “I know an awesome mechanic and I can give you his number so you can borrow his.”

    I’m thinking ‘Gee, how awesome of you to offer SOMEONE ELSE’S tool that he makes his living with to a total stranger on the internet. I’m sure he won’t mind...’

    I bet I know how that idiot votes.

    I hate it when people volunteer my services, whether I want to or not. " Hey, Bobby will [not can, or might] fix that for you." Sometimes I don't mind helping folks, a lot depends on who it is and what the repair is. I absolutely refuse to work on FWD stuff anymore, between it cutting my skin all to pieces and these stiff arthritic fingers I just can't do it. And I don't like folks volunteering the use of my tools, either. If they are to be used, I will be the one using them.

    But, if she's good looking enough and wants to borrow a certain tool for a while, well, I'm not going to turn her down!

      That type of person usually looks like Rosie O’Donnell.
