Folks, there is one thing that we all need to be on the same page about here. Yes, you should be a good person. The risk of getting caught shouldn’t be what stops you from doing bad things. For those among us who aren’t as honest as they should be, it’s really not that hard to realize that just about everything you do these days is being watched. Whether it be a Facebook post, YouTube video, or the person catching you in the act, there are some things that are just a bad idea. One of these things that would probably be a bad idea across the board is taking somebody’s car on a joyride when you have been tasked with the opportunity to be able to work on it and get paid for it.
This is a situation that we have definitely seen ended in disaster multiple times but somehow, some people who work on vehicles just can’t seem to keep from behind the wheel, taking the car outside of what they had promised and having a little bit of fun behind the wheel.
Mari Agredano-Quirino reported her husband dropped off his limited edition Camaro on the 1st of September to get the air conditioner checked and an oil change.
“He dropped it off in the morning,” Agredano-Quirino wrote on Facebook. “At about 9:30, we were on our way to go eat lunch. As we waited at a signal, we saw a car speeding passed us. My husband said, ‘babe I think that was our car.’ So we followed it. He was going so fast we couldn’t even catch up. Finally, a few blocks down, we see him pulling in to the drive thru of a burger restaurant.”
In this situation, it just so happens to be a dealership that was supposed to fix this Chevrolet Camaro and after fixing up the air conditioner and changing the oil, it looks like somebody was interested in taking a sports car for spin. However, they probably didn’t think that they would be intercepted at the local drive-through by the car’s owner.
“You’re telling me that you’re test-driving the car?” she asked. “No … you’re getting food from Tommy’s.”
The below shows off the woman who owns the car getting incredibly upset with the guy who was out and about, taking the car for ride, justifiably so. From my point of view, it serves as a reasonable excuse that the person behind the wheel would be out testing one of the repairs, however, when you’re testing a repair, hitting the drive-through probably isn’t something that you’d want to do. With something like that, you probably want to just go out and come back, avoiding all possibility for something like this or any bad situation, for that matter, to unfold.
After seeing this one for yourself, tell us what you think of the situation and the way that it was handled.
