I just made a phone call to our Auto Shop of choice, & here is what the conversation sounded like:
Lady @ The Auto Shop: "Hallo! *Insert name of shop.*
Me: "Hallo! Spreken ze English?"
Lady @ The Auto Shop: "...No."
*insert a few laughs from both of us, along with a little silent pause from me as I attempt to think of a plan. I couldn't think of a plan.*
Me: "...Ok! Tschuss!"
Lady @ The Auto Shop: "Tschuss!"
This is going to be fun. Cross your fingers for me, please!
