More mundane news.
My performance review went well. The boss has apparently received good feedback from the general public and the industry and is pleased with my achievements. I am permanent. Also I am now in charge of the airport safety inspections as soon as I have had some more training.
I had been meaning to take the car back to the garage before the warranty ran out, because of a noise in the front, and a shimmy in the steering at high (legal) speed. But I kept forgetting to do it. Last week I bumped into the salesman who asked how the Camry was going, and I said “Ah! I have been meaning to talk to you about that.” So last Saturday I went to see him and on Wednesday it went in for a check up. On Thursday they called to tell me that I had a damaged rim and a leaking shock absorber and though the warranty has just expired, they will fix it anyway.
Good for you Great Southern Toyota. You have just acquired a loyal customer and some good word of mouth.
