God must be playing a joke on me! Best Mechanic Experience to date. I logged on to YourMechanic because as usual some man said he'll put the brakes on and then realized all he would get is the money owed to him and nothing else, so, of course, he flaked. I sat on my couch, looked up and said "That's it, God! The real men like President Obama, Dr. Creflo Dollar and Steve Harvey must be some type of illusion. They must be some type of fluke that only exist on TV. That's it God, all men are...(you can imagine the rest)."
But then, Alex showed up. Unfortunately, I wrongly anticipated the absolute worst, but to my surprise, I got the quintessential best. It was almost surreal. He was genuinely polite (in Miami this is rare). No really, like polite and professional for no reason at all, just because he is obviously a true professional. He showed his ID when I asked and it didn't seem to bother him at all that I asked (like some people I know). He also patiently answered all of my inquiries. He handled the parts of my car like they were his and then I was really stunned when I came outside and he cleaned up! No, not regular clean up. Not "man-version" clean up (no shade to all the meticulous men out there whose Mama and Grandma didn't play the radio, please keep it up). No, I mean he put stuff back in the right boxes...(hello somebody), closed the boxes back (take the wheel, Lord!), cleaned the driveway of every nut, bolt, screw or whatever they are called (Pass the bucket and let's do a building fund offering! Hallelujah!). Best of all, I felt so comfortable (i.e. he did not crack nasty jokes or try to hit on me). When he drove off, I looked up to the sky again, but this time I said "I hear you God, the joke's on me!"
