Auto Mechanics

Call to the reference desk-

Hello, I just got a flat tire and I'm pulled over to the side of the road. I didn't know what to do, and this nice man stopped to help. I was wondering if you could tell me the going rate for changing a tire so that I can pay him for helping me.

I called a couple gas stations; no one could speak English. I finally found a tire shop that said they would charge about $15. A customer listening to this whole exchange yelled from his computer, "Hell, I'll change the tire for $20!"

I don't know, I used to think a library was a place of books, but now I know liberrians are auto mechanics too! Next time I have car problems I should call the public liberry instead of AAA. Seems logical.
