Out Of Its Groove

Joe's car broke down. Same trouble as before. Clutch cable. So we dashed out and bought another one. Second hand, of course. The garage man came to look at car number one, lifted the bonnet and said, "Hey, this isn't actually broke. The cable just came out of its groove." So he put it back.

And he didn't charge us a thing.

And now we're a three car family.
