It’s never fun to have your car repaired.
Inevitably, the mechanic discovers something that you never suspected was a problem, and your car goes from beloved chauffeur to dangerous weapon.
I don’t know anything about cars, so while I’m always cautious of a mechanic’s advice, I don’t see why I shouldn’t believe them.
One woman, on the other hand, is certain that a mechanic tried to con her, so she made certain that he didn’t get away with it.
Reddit user “drunken-black-sheep” reached out to the “Petty Revenge” forum earlier this month to discuss an interaction she had with a dodgy mechanic.
The 1.4 million-strong r/PettyRevenge subreddit is dedicated to “tales of tiny victories over people who have mistreated you,” and it was the ideal venue for this story.
