While hoisting her car onto his tow truck he couldn’t help noticing the sticker on the back bumper. He smiled and looked down at his scraped, bruised, habitually greasy hands. He thought for a moment, then lowered the car back to the ground, unhooked it, neatly penned a brief note to the owner, taped it to the driver’s side window, then got back into his truck and drove away.
The note: “I just saw that bumper sticker on the back of your car and couldn’t agree more. Women are so much better at solving everyday problems than men. So, with that in mind, you’ll find all the tools and parts you will need to rebuild your transmission at the Magic Wand Auto Parts store in the WonderLand Mall (which is right next to the WavyHead Hair & Nails Salon). Best of luck, and have a nice day! Bart’s Towing & Auto Repair”
