the daily purge 2-17-17


Well, it’s something that belongs in your automobile, which is not to be confused with the soon-to-be-in-a-showroom-near-you autoautomobiles, or driverless cars. It looks like a doctor’s auriscope, that tickly thing she sticks in your ear to see what is in there (usually nothing bad). Which piece of equipment would a mechanic look at with this? A hose? A vent? A steering wheel? What do you think?

If you are a persistent reader you might notice a blade on this piece of equipment, or as we commonly call it on ‘the purge’, a ‘shiv’ or ‘shank’. Automobile repair is a dicey profession to pursue. Ordinarily nice people enter the field but because they are ‘squeezed’ between the customer who wants to pay a low price for his repair and the the automobile industry, known as Big Gas Pedal, charges outrageous prices for parts and accessories. The pressure to please opposing parties can make a powderkeg out of a powderpuff. I’m not privy to the goings on in the offices of my local Mr. Goodwrench but I suspect the truth would have us changing adjectives. So when you pay your repairman for your bendy fender, keep a smile on your face and an eye on his tool box

Leviticus 25:14   “If you sell or buy property from one of your countrymen, don’t cheat him.
