Yeah, I realized that that was the route to go when I pulled the dipstick on the oil for the first time after my previous post and realized that "bottle goes horizontal" roughly translates to "smack bang in the middle."

I can only assume that I'm just that awesome a mechanic that my reputation alone brings people out to the-middle-of-nowhere to get their cars fixed, especially considering the number of junkers that keep appearing on my jobs queue. That tow truck outside is probably due for its own overhaul with the amount of usage it's seeing day to day.

Yeah, I just checked my Steam timeline and found that I haven't touched the game myself since April of last year, which is sort of an indication of how much of a hell my life's been the last 18+ months. Long story short, between COVID, changes in management, changes in ownership, staff shortages, and veritable hordes of mouth-breathing morons ignoring all basic survival instincts, I've had little free time to do much beyond catching up with the waking world in-between work shifts. I think the only thing that's kept me (relatively) sane is mobile games, which I keep meaning to do write-ups for since I think folks here would find them interesting. Amusingly, CMS 2021 has been the first game in months able to actually peel me away from my iPad for longer than an hour.
