    The random $h!t I see at work thread.

    Instead of putting it in the random photo thread I'll just make my own and update when I see some "WTF shit" or something cool comes in..

    Here's what I've got so far if you haven't seen the random posts in the other thread.


    Last week..random wheel dropped off. not sure what it goes too. I think an impala or malibu.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can make you awfully comfortable while you're being miserable.

    he came in for tires.

    Service Manager, in a joking manner, said loudly that the owner told me to take for a drive and burn off the rest of the old tires. Owner overheard and was like "don't forget to turn off the traction control". I didn't of course, but it was tempting

    Unfortunately I can't take pics at my main job, but we see some crazy stuff here. I should take more pics at the second job because it's amazing and scary at the junky cars with Billy Bob repairs are on the road where we drive.

    If you don't already...get some rubber gloves. Wifes uncle switched to them a few years ago (along with machanix gloves for some situations) and he wishes he did it sooner. The clean up and condition of his hands are more than worth it.

    Car Audio days saw many odd things.... From old diapers under the seat to finding a 9mm hidden in a dash. Most amusing was cleaning up broken glass from a rear window, putting in a radio, two amps and four 200W 6x9's in the rear deck... "A dealer special" while the owner sat in the waiting room, bleeding from the gun shot wound he got on the way to the shop....

    Do you guys have to notify them in those situations or did they already know about it?

    We didn't care. Those guys would drop thousands at the drop of a hat, in cash. Drug money of course, and as long as they didn't deal while on site, we were instructed to turn a blind eye.
