Last night on the way home from work, I took serious notice of a “whiz” noise coming from my front left tire. I thought maybe it was under inflated. When I got home, I checked it out and was instead convinced it was a bearing issue. And if its one set of bearings, you can bet the other set isn’t far behind. So on my way home the next day, I took my car to the local shop. $900 was the estimate and it needed to get done.
Fast forward a few hours, and about one hundred pages of the book I was reading and the gent called me up to the counter. The Jeep was all set. After some brief conversation about the bearings, he casually said, “I noticed the symbols on the Jeep. Freemasons right?” I confirmed to which he asked, “How does one get started in that?” I smiled politely, opened my wallet and handed him my phone number and said, “You just did.”
He gave me his card and number as well, we shook hands and I was off. The “whiz” noise was gone and the Jeep is driving like her old self again.
