Frankly, there is not a car on our lot that I would hesitate to own.
Maybe that's why this family has been in business there for 25 years.
Anyway.... the other day I have a late model Toyota I am going over. On my list-to-feex, a brake warning light, an antilock warning light, and a check engine warning light. About 20 minutes into exploring the issues, I decide the antilock/antiskid module is faulted. As is my custom, I do a visual inspection before proceeding.
On looking at the module, I find this:
Happy dance for a moment.... until I inform the business owner of the easy fix. He tells me things like that happen all the time on auction cars. Used car dealer/buyers often disconnect things while inspecting the vehicle, in an effort to create warning lights that drive bidding lower.
I was.... stunned.
A) Who the fuck THINKS like that?
B) More importantly.... given my extreme low opinion of humans in general.... why wasn't that the FIRST thing I looked for??
I'm concerned that I may have a deep seated faith in humanity that I never suspected existed. Not sure how to deal with that thought.
