It wasn't until our afternoon walk when I went to grab the leashes and couldn't find them, did I realize my error. I hopped in the car a went back to see if they were still there. Being Sunday, I was expecting the worst, and even began formulating an excuse for the wife as to how I could of lost the leashes.
But to my surprise as I drove up, there they were, still swaying in the breeze on the chain. I guarantee you in any other neighbourhood they would of been long gone.
And the second reason is, as you may know I bought a new car a few weeks ago from a used car dealer in the beach. Over the weekend the part of the muffler that is attached to the engine broke off. I did the math and it had been more then six weeks since I bought the car, I figured any good will the dealer had would be long gone. But I took it back to them on Monday to have the problem repaired at their garage instead of where I normally go, expecting to pay. And since it's an Audi I was expecting the pay a lot.When I went to pick up my car later that night, I was shown the broken muffler and told the replacement part had cost $400. "Not bad," I thought, "it certainly could of been a lot worse." And then to my surprise, when I went to pay for the repairs, I was told that there would be no charge. They would be covering all costs as I had just bought the car from them.
