"I didn't say we would FIX it, only that we would work on it."
I was up way too late and now I am so very tired. Yesterday turned into quite a marathon, our service manager is *retiring* and has a couple of days of vacation coming, so he has taken a couple of days off. It was so busy the parts manager couldn't keep up with it and I spent the day in the back, running my tail off. Being service manager is physically difficult, our garage area is huge, and anything needing to be done is always on the other side of the shop. It is also a mentally demanding job, no one is ever happy when their vehicle is broken. Nor are they grateful when it's fixed----it shouldn't have broken in the first place. Nor do they like paying fifty dollars an hour for labor---the list goes on and on. So, I was ready for a few brown bottles when the day was over. And I had a few, then stayed up way too late. So, once again, I am tired. But today will be a short day, one that i will be happy to have behind me, at least the work part. I am already running behind, and will be back later---at least the service department is closed today! :)
