    From Not Always Right: New Year With A Perfect Movie Ending

    (It is New Year’s Eve, and I am working on the closing shift at a movie theatre. I usually do work New Year’s, though before, we used to finish by about 10 pm. We have later shows on today so we are set to leave at about 12:15.)

    Customer: approaching me as the last film finishes and everyone is leaving “We’ve tried to keep it as clean as possible for you, so we didn’t leave a big mess for you. Thank you so much for being here tonight. We really appreciate it. Happy New Year!”

    (I didn’t mind being at work that night, but it was very touching to hear that someone appreciates us working on holidays and special occasions.)

    Not my story

    Patience Baldo. By the time you finish that car a collector will probably pay you a million dollars for it.

    I would think having 4 wheels would be a priority

    Not disappointed. It is the working that leads to pulling out of the driveway that first time…

    doesn’t look like it now, but it does build character for the long run of life

    I would like to see Baldo working on his car, finding problems, and finding ways to overcome them. It would be a great running theme and a comment on how to persevere to reach one’s goals.

    Get a repair guide, Mike! It’ll make the job a lot easier!

    My cars always take more time than I expected, that first one is special and you will always remember it as the best one you ever had

    I would imagine salvage yards have already been picked clean of any usable parts for a 60+ year old car, especially for a car that was ready for the junk yard 10 years after it was built.

    I carefully went to bed at eight o’clock New Year’s Eve and didn’t wake ‘til seven AM on New Year’s Day. Could have slept later but the elkhound needed to go out.
