These mechanics replaced the battery in a customer’s car a week before. When she returned, she had a strange problem. She said the red line had not been on the tachometer before, and she wanted a refund. Sometimes, there’s just no fix for a car problem. Perhaps this was actually a people problem (via Awesome Inventions).
