I go to another forum once in a while, it is a painting/historical forum and has mostly Europeans as members. This post was made by a German guy who is not very fluent in English (like me). He is a great guy but I thought this tranlation was pretty funny.

   Dear Planeteers.

   I urgent need some decision support!

   A workshop employee has built with my car on a transfer trip a fat (drive-in) accident and is now in the hospital.

   She is completely new there, has only begun on 1. August.
   She has now real feared about her probation time ...

   I went to Mahndorf this afternoon and saw my car ....:



   The thing was with its 22 years of tipptopp groomed, zero rust, no carrotteries, an engine without fault and a perfectly clean interior (never smoked in it!), no upholstery damage, etc etc.
   I did not really want to buy a new car in this life - and in a few years the thing would have got a classic car number plate and would have been virtually tax free.

   This is how it looks now ...:


   Fender left, front, bumper, hood, all screw connections and hinges are in the ass, as the Bajuwaren say.

   Okay, sheet metal can be renewed and bucked - but it looks much worse under the hood:

   Radiator, oil pan broken, engine bearing and carrier bent!



   The whole engine has moved it 1.5 centimeters to the rear on the left side, he now sits obliquely in the car. Frame, track and steering linkage are also warped.


   And that's just what you see at first sight.

   The lady wanted to go punctually to the weekend and has properly held ...

   Line below: Total damage! Repairing is possible, but only with immense effort!

   So I am now offered two alternatives:

   They are looking for an equivalent "Xedos V6", which - if I want him - have to be worked up, if there is something to work up and then put me in front of the door without any costs.

   I say "I love my car and want to have it repaired!"Then you would make the teeth crunchy - and I would not pay a dime!

   So dear Planeteers!

   How would you leave me in my place? Provided there is another "Xedos" found (which are really rare).

   I really do not know it at the moment!

   My naked murder lust against the employee, however, has now turned into compassion. She is now in the clinic, with a heavily humming skull (heavy wheezing) and worries about her future career. The crash she certainly did not intentionally built.

   So - and now come up with your arguments !!!

   Thank you!

I hate it when my teeth get crunchy. It drives me into a naked murder lust as well. I feel his pain.

At the NATO base where I was stationed the host nation (Germany) was responsible for the command staff meeting slide deck.

They titled the leave/TDY slide "Absence of Leadership". I laughed every time that slide came up, and my boss always shot me a dirty look.
