I Would have done the same as this manager. I might have let the apprentice stay but not if he got lippy.February 4, 2020 at 3:26 pm #191015GaryGuest
we used to use the test drive to kill two birds with one stone to test the vehicle and pick up anything we needed. Was also a treat for the apprentice to get out the garage for 5 mins. Prob a mouthy lad which is why he got sacked. Makes me glad I’m a mobile patrol these days and can stop and get something when I like!February 4, 2020 at 3:27 pm #191016GaryGuest
Also hate it when mechanics are referred to as such one second and then to being technicians in the same story. Americanisms. Had a dealer call me a ‘technician’ the other day and I said no mate I’m a mechanic!February 4, 2020 at 4:27 pm #191018Marcus HamblinGuest

Very apt punishment… and I hope the garage owner cancelled the car owners bill !February 5, 2020 at 8:41 am #191020Brian WaiteGuest
Feel a bit sorry for the owner of the garage now that this is hitting the national newspapers and our local media. 5 Minutes of madness to wreck his business.
