Thanks for pointing out my errors I'll go stand in the corner and have corrected it now

Cant be as bad as mine last week. Customer was texting me regarding a squeaky CRV clutch.  She knows my mechanic so I text, "liase" with my mechanic regarding a suitable time for you both. Came out as "you liar" due to predictive texting.  Fortunately I know her fairly well, she didn't take offence.

Your mechanic should be able to tell you if it was burnt out on purpose by the colour of the clutch plate.

 

Couldnt call it either way tbh there was loads of hot spots and literally no material left. He did say he was having trouble on the way up with some of the steep hills with the clutch slipping.

Id lean towards done on purpose but honestly i don't car anymore.

Made me smile but as you say predictive text is a pain sometimes and could have gone wrong with a new customer etc . At least you knew the good lady and she seen the funny side .

I was thinking my first thoughts were maybe having not even done intentionally on purpose but maybe due to bad driving who knows .

as you say pick up the pieces and move on

To be fair, in this instance she was right, it really was squeaking.  Although she did say it was undrivable, a bit of an exaggeration.  All sorted now...…..famous last words!

Ive always been that way try to help and please everyone sometimes its actually a weakness cause you never can 

thats how I got the name casper as i take flowers to the graveyard for a neighbour for her husbands grave who is no longer fit to go one off the lads  started calling me it and it stuck 

although I've been known to blow the odd gasket or go ape at the odd mechanic or painter/panel beater in my time.one thing I hate is rushing sub standard work or its doesn't need that cover I lost it one day with one for not refitting an engine cover leaving it on a workshop floor .

but is mostly decent people on here so I always try to be  nice friendly and polite 

with the ladies and gentleman on here

Ive my  old dad to thank for thats who said when we were kids manners cost nothing and treat people as you expect to be treated 

another one he said was if someone gives you advice always take it if its good enough use it if it doesn't work go back to doing it your way .

he sadly getting older by the day and not as fit as he once was 

everyone offers good advice here and I try to do my bit 

good luck to all
