There was shock, dismay and outrage in Newry today after a mechanic actually fixed a car in one day as he promised to do.
Local woman Claire Heavyfoot took her car to CR Morrow’s for a problem she was having with her engine, Claire told Newry Spud:
“The mechanic told me he would have the yoke ready before 4pm on Monday, I said aye; I heard that before and went on with my business. Two hours later my phone goes off and it was Morrow’s telling me the car was fixed. I nearly had a stroke if the truth be told. I just don’t understand this; it’s weird and unusual to be pleased with a mechanic’s work.”
A Morrow’s spokesman explained the whole affair to Newry Spud:
“Firstly we would like to apologise to the customer for actually fixing the car when we said we would. We have only employed this mechanic and he didn’t realise the way things are done in Newry. We have put this mechanic on unpaid leave for a month to give him time to reflect on his foolishness and we promise this kind of efficiency will never be seen again.”
