Friday Wisdom – Mechanics

This week I got a quote to replace my A/C system as it’s starting to fail. After looking at the quote, and recovering from the fainting spell, I got thinking about mechanics in general. Here’s what I know:

A robot mechanic is never lonely – they’re always making new friends.

Stopped by the local car repair shop and all the mechanics were drinking coffee – I think they were on a brake.

I told the repair shop that my car was making this strange humming noise. They said it’s likely because my car didn’t know the words.

Does a mechanic need a current license to work on an electric car?

I thought of becoming an elevator mechanic, but I’ve been told the job has serious ups and downs.

I dreamed that I was a mechanic fixing wreaked cars – it was an auto body experience.

To make a mechanical frog, you can’t use bolts. You have to use rivets.

A jumper cable walks into a bar and the bartender yells, “Don’t start anything.”

Never trust a car repair man who rides a bicycle to work.

The mechanic just finished install a new tail pipe. He was exhausted.

We couldn’t fix your brakes, so we made you horn louder.

Is it true that Honda mechanics have to take Civics lessons?

    The robot mechanic and the mechanical frog are very good, but I have to go for “We couldn’t fix your brakes, so we made you horn louder.”

  8. There is always something going wrong in a home, isn’t there. We’ve just had to re-do our pathway as I was worried my parents might fall as it was very uneven. Great jokes.

    Turning up the radio volume won’t fix the A/C, huh? Guess that only works to cover the clanking noises.
