Re: Fees for Services
By John A. Tuttle

Hi all,

I have a sign in my shop which reads:

To Whom It May Concern: We the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

What's my point? I don't have one. I'm just curious as to why Jody wrote about Fees. Is there some cryptic meaning I'm missing?

[ It's just a bit of humor, John, reflecting what service shops
[ sometimes think about customers. The sign Jody remembered was
[ Labor Rate
[ $10/hr
[ $15/hr if you watch
[ $20/hr if you help
[ The sign actually hung in the motorcycle shop! I added the last line,
[ "if you fixed it yourself," and altered the 'rates' for better plausi-
[ bility (in my opinion). I was recalling the note from Bruce Clark in
[ Digest 970115, which described a botched job by an amateur where glue
[ from the pneumatics was sucked into the whole expression mechanism !
