"Congratulations, Lelloh! I just love seeing female mechanical technicians emerging. I’m not qualified but I service my own vehicle, as I find it hard to trust male mechanics. They all seem to think women are clueless with regards to mechanics, and therefore make the mistake of trying to deceive me."
