I guess I’ve never really considered what kinds of weird things mechanics have to deal with all the time, but now my eyes have been opened!

Because all of these photos are pretty wild and they prove that those men and women who work on our cars and keep us on the road encounter all kinds of wild and unusual situations.

Let’s take a look at some of the really good examples!

1. That thing is ADORABLE.

Just have a seat in the lobby.

Customer: "Let me know when you are about to pull my truck in so I can get my raccoon" and he sat in the lobby with a raccoon until his truck was done. from Justrolledintotheshop

2. What are you doing in there?

You don’t see that every day.

Hood opens. Hood is layed down immediately. Tech exclaims "Oh HELL NO." from Justrolledintotheshop

3. A real herky-jerky kind of car.

I bet they still laugh about this one.

4. That’s a very specific complaint.

Let’s get to the bottom of it.

The car sounds like a cartoon. from Justrolledintotheshop

5. That looks so dangerous.

Gonna slide right off the road.

Customer refused all 4 tires on a rainy day, she also had to sign a waiver before releasing the car. from Justrolledintotheshop

6. Awwww. Poor little guy.

Get him to safety!

7. Someone had a very bad night.

And we hope they are okay.

8. What are you doing in there!

The owner probably should’ve mentioned something about this…

Customer failed to mention the fact that his dog was in the vehicle, scared the hell outta me. from Justrolledintotheshop

9. How do I work this thing?

Oh good, there are instructions.

Accerlator gets stuck to floor. Pull on string to unstick. from Justrolledintotheshop

10. Well, at least they have a sense of humor.

I’d like a Prius!

11. Actual gloves in an actual glovebox.

It ACTUALLY happened.

16 years of writing service and it finally happened. Gloves in a glovebox from Justrolledintotheshop

12. Back in the USSR.

They had cars there? Are you sure?

I am pretty sure i’m younger than the tire. from Justrolledintotheshop

13. This was a major issue, obviously.

I’m glad they got it all worked out.

Work never fails to disappoint from Justrolledintotheshop

I really hope nothing like that ever happens to my car…
