54. Car Troubles (B)


Maria: I'm sure it's nothing to be worried about. I'm sure it just needs a simple tune up.
Mike: Yeah, you're probably right.
Maria: What made you think that there might be something wrong with your car?
Mike: I heard an odd noise coming from the engine that I had never heard before.
Maria: It's best to have that looked at now. Come back soon. Alright honey?
Mike: Alright, honey. See you when I get back.
(Mike drove to the mechanic. The mechanic had a look at his car for half an hour.)
Mechanic: You have a nice car.
Mike: Why, thank you. I hope there's nothing wrong with it.
Mechanic: Actually, there is a minor problem. But it's nothing I can't fix.

Mike: What's the problem, and what caused it?
Mechanic: It's an engine problem. These kinds of cars are bound to run into engine troubles one way or the other. It had nothing to do with your driving.
Mike: I see. How much is this going to cost me?
Mechanic: About five hundred. You're also going to have to leave it here for a couple of days. Is that fine with you?
Mike: If it means fixing my car, then by all means yes.
Mechanic: Mike, you have nothing to worry about. I assure you your car is in the best of hands, and will come out of here even better than before.
Mike: Thank you for that.
