A Mechanic’s Life

mobile-mechanic-baltimore

It’s 85 degrees outside

But it feels more like 100 in here

The fans they give us are a joke

Is there somewhere cool to hide?

 

Ms. Jenkins’ is back for the third time in two weeks

Insisting she hears an awful noise

But there’s nothing wrong with her jeep

And the inside of it just wreaks

 

The last job I booked took three days to fix

But I will only get paid for half of that

Instead of relaxing when I clock out

My neighbor’s van just got added to the mix.

 

I’m good at what I do and I like my job

But I could leave the politics and drama behind

And sometimes it feels like my hard work isn’t appreciated

At least my wife doesn’t mind me coming home looking like a slob

 

I may complain about my long day

Dealing with things that didn’t go right

And just being exhausted with it all

But the truth is, I wouldn’t have it any other way

 

This is the career path I chose to pursue

It’s my life’s work and I take pride in it

Knowing your car works right gives me satisfaction 

Not for a moment do I regret what I chose to do.

 

My husband is a mechanic and this morning I thought about how much he does and how little he’s recognized for it all. I wanted to write this for him and all other mechanics out there. We thank you for all of your hard work, keeping our vehicles running and dealing with our insanity. We appreciate you.

  4. Great piece, I don’t know where I would be without my mechanic Joe. My car is twenty years old and Joe makes sure she still runs smoothly. Thank you to all mechanics.
