I'm doing rather well, and I'm in a pretty good mood.

I dont trust mechanics either. Most of them ive met cant do anything i cant do, and im not even a good mechanic.
You are of course correct about the extra money, but i am finding it particularly hard to be philosophical in the face of this one. It was'nt that the bill was unexpected it was just way more than I was expecting.edit on 30-9-2012 by hotel1 because: be added
