Default Re: tell a Model A related story

Small and simple story.

Our small town of 2,000 folk has a new auto electrician, a semi-retired fellow who started business some time ago in a quiet and unannounced way. I took him my GM Holden to convert to 12V. He was both competent and helpful and a pleasure do business with. I went to the ATM and withdraw the money and paid him. He counted it out to confirm.

I said to the fellow, “you came from the city didn’t you?” Well yes, he responded, how would you know? Well you counted the money where-as a country person would have simply stuffed it in his pocket and accepted its value I responded. (It takes only a few moments to pick urban folks).

I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory. is offline   Reply With Quote
