Clutching the Pearls

Grease Monkeys

Ow! Ow! Ow! It’s Friday the 13th and I ransomed my car this evening from the shop for over two grand—more than half of it labor. I think I’m in the wrong line of business. Maybe I should be a grease­mon­key instead.

The clutch was worn out and the flywheel needed replacing, which required taking out the trans­mis­sion.

We’ve only had one other comparable bill with this car and it has over 90,000 miles. We’re not doing too badly overall, except that the other bill was late last year.
