Don’t Mess With My Work
I might be being paranoid, but I can’t argue with the fact that I gave my son a perfectly good car to drive and in a short period of time, it needed serious engine repair. Granted, it is an old car, and anything can happen to an old car, but when you start replacing parts out of suspicion rather than properly diagnosing them, you go down a rabbit hole you can never get out of, and as a result, negate all the good work that I did.
This isn’t a rant so much as a polite request. I’d like not to have to go through this again.
Have you ever worked on someone’s car only to have them mess it up after the fact? If so, please share your story in the comments. It would be nice to know I’m not alone in this.
