Mission: Accomplished

Mmm. Chick-Fil-A.

I got the tire patched, had the tires rotated and balanced, replaced the taillight bulb and got the car inspected.

I earned major points with Mechanic #1 when he realized the tire with the nail was in the trunk--not on the car--because I had already changed it ("most women would just call someone!"), muchas points with Mechanic #2 when I conversed with him about the lug-lock in Spanish ("esta en el portaequipaje"), and props from all three mechanics when I produced my burnt out lightbulb, popped in the new one in they handed me and reinstalled the taillight assembly on the spot.

Mechanic #3: "Did you see that? This girl knows how to change her own taillight."
Mechanic #1: "Yeah. She changed her own tire, too."
Mechanic #3: (nudges buddy) "I think she could be a mechanic. Whaddya say?
Mechanic #2: "Si, si. Ella sería buen mecánico. (Or something.)

They did everything right on the spot and I didn't have to pay for the light bulb or the tire patch. Sweet.

Note to self: Brake pads on the rear wheels are down to about 1/8 inch.
