Miss Manners: I hate when the mechanic changes my car settings

Dear Miss Manners: It happened AGAIN last week for the umpteenth time: I took my car in for maintenance at the dealership, which prides itself on customer service. I waited in the very comfortable lounge while the work was completed, paid the invoice, walked out and got into a sparkling-clean car that had just been washed as part of the service.

I had driven less than a block when I realized that the seat was out of adjustment. At the first corner, I looked in the exterior rearview mirror, only to find that the mirror had been knocked out of its cradle and was giving me a view of blue sky.

When I, down at the dash to see how much gas I had left, the readout had been changed from “fuel range” to “odometer.” The most frustrating of all was that the radio, which I had left on

Cleveland mechanic becomes ER doctor at 51 – after starting pre-med classes in 2010

A former Cleveland-area mechanic has completed his lifelong goal of becoming a medical physician nearly 32 years after opening his auto shop.

Carl Allamby, 51, started his job in an emergency room as an attending physician at Cleveland Clinic’s Hillcrest Hospital in Mayfield Heights, Ohio, 16 years after deciding he wanted to return to school.

He enrolled at Ursuline College in Pepper Pike, Ohio, in 2016 at age 34 to attain a business degree, after having been a small business owner for 15 years.

After taking an introductory biology course, Allamby was reminded of ‘childhood ambitions’ to become a doctor.

He then enrolled in pre-med classes at Cleveland’s Cuyahoga Community College in 2010.

‘After my decision to pursue medicine, I started volunteering at a hospital in the Cleveland area,’ Allamby told FOX News.

‘Every exposure I had in medicine further solidified my choice to pursue a medical career.’

Carl Allamby, 51, opened his auto shop, Allamby's Auto Service, when he was 19

Sterilgarda Husqvarna Max: Mechanics fined and suspended for blocking opposing team’s bike



CNN

Two mechanics have been fined and suspended for blocking an opposing team’s bike from leaving the pit lane during qualifying for a motorbike race.

On Saturday, two members of the Sterilgarda Husqvarna Max team were caught on camera appearing to deliberately obstruct the bike of Adrian Fernandez as he attempted to leave the Tech3 KTM garage during the second part of qualifying for the Moto3 Aragon Grand Prix.

MotoGP announced later on Saturday that both mechanics were fined €2,000 (USD2003.23) and suspended for two races for “interfering and making contact with the bike and rider of another team in an aggressive and dangerous manner.”

The suspension was deferred until later races as banning the mechanics for the next two races, in Japan and Thailand, MotoGP said, would make Replacing the pair impossible because of immigration and travel restrictions.

The team’s boss, former World Superbike Champion Max Biaggi, suggested
