    The old parts store I bought parts at when I was a teenager had this posted on their counter. I love it!


    The Parts Man Prayer



    I work behind the counter

    In an autoparts store

    Sometimes I'm called a genius

    Sometimes I'm called much more.



    I say I'm no mechanic

    But when their job goes sick

    Everyone comes in and asks me

    What makes the damn thing tick.



    I'm supposed to know the number

    Of nuts and bolts and gears

    For every machine ever made

    For more than a hundred years.



    I'm supposed to have the answer

    For everything unknown

    To every Tom, Dick, and Harry

    For all their questions thrown.



    My life would be a pleasure

    And I'd grin from ear to ear

    If only they would tell me

    Their Model, Make, Year


    Amen

    Being in Auto Parts for around 25 Years now, I do have a copy of that somewhere, & it is SO TRUE!

    I should have collected 10 bucks every time I heard "they're all the same." I could have a free Dart
