just got lucky

The wonderful garage that works on my car (Deyarmin’s on Goucher Street) fixed my exhaust problem today. They made a new exhaust pipe for the one that fell off my car yesterday. Total cost: around $60. If they would’ve gotten the part from the Toyota garage, total cost: $585. This is why we don’t go to the dealership for service. Needless to say, I love those guys! Plus they squeezed us in today, so that was really nice of them. It is so convenient living two blocks from a reputable garage when you have a vehicle that has 100,000 miles on it.
