Oil Change


I decided to go in to my Nissan dealership today for a long overdo oil change. The waiting room area had a window that overlooked the actual work space. Donovan sat reading a good book and another costumer surfed the web with a laptop. It turned out that my truck has a few leaks and the grand total for the repairs would be $3,500! I called my wife and she suggested I go to her mechanic for a second opinion. That second mechanic claimed he would do the work for 10% less than my dealership. When I got to this second mechanics shop however I find that he has a backlog of work and at the least the repair would take 2 days. That means I would have to pay to rent a car for 2 days. I came back to the studio with just the oil changed and now I need to decide what to do next.

I suspect it is leaking a high grade of plutonium. The mechanics are wearing hasmet suits.
