Sure, it’s a little worrying to see the mechanics that you hired to fix your car looking up a tutorial about how to fix your car, but let’s break it down. There are a whole lot of cars out there these days and a whole lot of little parts that go into every car. Mechanics know how to take things apart and put them together with as little damage as possible, and they have all the tools they need to do it.
Just because they’ve come up against something that they don’t know off the top of their heads isn’t a reason to fret just yet. People use Google and instructional videos all the time to learn things, even if it’s in their chosen profession. Ask any IT professional. Google is their best friend.
There’s a Reason It Has That License Plate
Is this the first time this sort of event has happened to this driver? Because the license plate tells us otherwise. Even for the...talented driver, flipping a car onto its roof, leaving its wheels to spin fruitlessly in the air, is a tough ask. Even if somebody can manage to do it, they will only do it once in their entire lives.
We are told that the person who was driving this car was eating cereal, and then she dropped it in her lap. We can’t believe we’re saying this, but please don’t be eating cereal while you’re driving a car. If you find out that information from us, you need to go back to driving school and stay there for a while.
Taking the Pump for a Ride
How many times do you gas up your car? Let’s do a little back-of-the-envelope math to find out. You start driving when you’re sixteen, and let’s say you gas up the car twice a month at that point. It’s probably different for everybody, but bear with us. That’s twenty-four times a month every year. Say you drive until you’re...eighty? Sure, that’s not too bad.
That’s sixty-four years of driving, which means approximately fifteen hundred and thirty-six times fueling up over the course of an average life. What are the chances of pulling off the hose from a gas pump these days? Maybe one in a thousand? That’s a low chance...but the odds aren’t in your favor. Be sure to double-check every time you pull away, or this person might be you.
When People Ask You to Move Your Car, Do It
Hey, you know those emails you got that were talking about the parking lot? Or the signs that were on the doors about the parking lot on a certain day? And the notification that went out over the loudspeakers on that certain day about a certain car?
That was today, and it was your car, and now your car is stuck between two big piles of dirt and a pallet of bricks, so there’s no way you’re going to get it out. We hope you know how to use Uber because it’s either that or begging your coworkers to give you rides to and from work for the next few weeks until the work is done. And then you’ll have to get your car washed, too.
Asking for It
Anybody who has been on Earth for thirty years or more will know that a sign of this nature will just produce a bunch of damage to the car, and we’re almost convinced that this is what the person who put up the sign was hoping for. Then again, the fact that “bullet” is misspelled tells us that maybe this person was really just trying to keep people from getting inside the car.
The thing is, there are a whole lot of cars out there, and the chance of somebody trying to get in yours (even given the rash of car thefts and break-ins going around in the news) is pretty low. If there’s nothing in the car, why did you put up the sign? Well, somebody did try to get in.
