I just picked my car up from the shop-- it needed some of this, some of that, the usual maintenance that you have to do to mechanical things from time to time. When I dropped it off this morning, the guy who runs the shop said, "I have the same car. I love it."

As I picked the car up, I started chatting with him. He asked me if I ever had problems with my convertible top. "I did, but not anymore."

"Mine keeps bending, and I replace the parts but they bend again."

"Yeah, I know exactly what's going on. The Mitsubishi brackets are too weak and they keep bending. There's a guy on Ebay who sells heavy-duty replacements. Send me email and I'll send you a link."

"Really? Great! I'm tired of mine breaking all the time."

I gave him my card and headed back to the office, and something hit me... I'd just told my mechanic how to fix his car.
