I worked in car dealerships for several years, often training or mentoring young mechanics, I was also one of the guys who would introduce the new guys- including management and new factory reps- around the shop.


"Anything Shocker can do I can do better and faster." (this was when introducing a friend whom I had worked with for many years. He is a good wrench, but he and I know I am better)

"If you are going to be successful working flat rate you have to approach it like having sex in an elevator. You take off as little as you can in order to get the job done well before the doors open." (The kids always like this one because I said "sex". But after they thought about what I meant by it, it usually resonated with them for other reasons).

""Some is good, more is better and too much is just right" is a recipe to fu*k it up!"

"You might not have enough time to do it right, but you damn sure will have time to do it over."

"If you screw something up, tell me and I'll show you how to fix it. Don't tell me, you are fired and I will have to fix it myself."

"Learn from your mistakes, but remember that the worst mistake to learn from is lying to me."

Vikingdad on respect.

Respect is not demanded, it is commanded by your bearing. I approach everybody with roughly the same amount of respect, which is a great deal of it, and then it can go up or down from there depending on what you do. Sometimes this happens very quickly and sometimes not. Usually it takes some time to see how you treat other people. Treat other people poorly (especially people who are less fortunate than you) and my level of respect for you plummets and usually cannot be recovered (and you will be in no doubt as to how I feel).

I came to this philosophy several years ago when the General Manager of the dealership I was working for said at one point that I "owed" him respect and I told him that was nonsense and gave him the above description of respect and how it is earned. Interestingly enough I think he respected my response (meaning I was not fired on the spot!) because he acted a little different around me after that, somehow more respectful. I say interestingly because the guy is a rotten SOB.

Many people don't get it, but respect has to be earned, even self respect has to be earned. When you are respectful of a stranger you are showing respect to the ones that taught you how to live, but that stranger must then earn the respect you have shown them by their deeds or the respect goes away quickly.

If you want to like a post on the app, go to the top of the page and click the area that has the title of the thread.

That will take you to desktop version of the same thread. Go to the page where you found the post you liked and like it from there.

It's a little bit of a pain but it works
