Inspired by Amber’s post, I would like to share a recent experience.
A couple of weeks ago the Something’s Wrong indicator light went on, and despite my thwacking the dashboard with my index finger a few times, it didn’t go off. So I called my mechanic (Andy – we’re on a first-name basis with one another. And I’d swear he recognizes my voice when I call) and he asked me, Is it the indicator that is shaped like an engine?, to which I responded, Huh, so that’s what that strange shape represents? Fortunately we both starting laughing, but I suspect for different reasons.
Happy ending: Andy fixed the problem, and he cleaned the car windows before I picked it up from his shop.
Post-script: the windows are now dirty again. Does this mean I need to take the car back?
