It is extremely cold today!!
For the last two weeks I've noticed that my "Brake" light has been going on almost every time that I stop at an intersection. Today, I finally broke down and called the "car fixing place" as my kids like to call it. We haven't gone to Expert Automotive probably since the beginning of the year. We always had gotten our oil changed there along with all other maintenance. Lately, I've been lazy and deciding that the quick 10-minute places were more convenient with 2 kids in the car and me waiting while they do the work.
I called Ben at Expert today and he said drop on by the earlier the better. I bundled the two boys as best as I could and hauled the double stroller in the van off to expect. Surprisingly, Ben remembered exactly who I was and commented that he hadn't seen me in a while. I signed the papers and told him that I started a new job and things had been going fine, but kind of busy to get to the shop. On my way out the door, he commented on how it looked like I had lost some weight and that I looked good. Coming from someone who didn't see me often and doesn't know me any better than any other customer, that really made my day. I will be thinking twice now about going to the chain oil change rather than my local "Ma-Pa" Expert.
