I'm sorry that this post might be a little depressing, but I'm kind of upset right now because he left me. I can't say that I wasn't surprised, because I was. It came as a total shock, and there were no warning signs whatsoever. Right now I keep thinking about how I never questioned him, and let him do whatever he wanted. Whenever he asked for money, I gave it to him without an argument. I was good to that man. I just don't know where I will ever find another mechanic as good as Carlos. Not only was Carlos a good mechanic, he was honest, and he was within walking distance. We could drop off the car and walk home from his shop. Now he's five miles away. Sure I could take a cab home, or find somebody to give me a ride, but it's just not the same. When I talked to him on the phone about moving his shop so far away, he said it had to be done, and as I said goodbye he said, "Goodbye my friend."
So it had come to that, we're just friends. Well I don't want another friend, I want a good, honest, mechanic within walking distance to my house. Now I have to go through that whole rigmarole again of one day stands, trying out new guy after new guy. I'll have to leave the car with a total stranger, and trust that he will be kind, and not overcharge me.
