The Popular Mechanic

Post by Chivalrybean » Sat Aug 01, 2009 9:55 pm

Lenny fixed everyone's car. The competitor, Charles, had to close shop because Lenny's such a popular mechanic. Charles is still bitter.

Lenny used to swear constantly. Even a slight bang on his knuckles would get him cursing. When his wife gave birth to their baby, he made the promise to stop cussing as best as he could. He still cursed at work sometimes when something really bad happened.

One day while Lenny was working under a car, Charles knocked the jack out from under with a sledge hammer. The car fell, crushing Lenny's legs.

"Aw Charles, still peeved are you?"

I've been trying to figure this one out. I know I'm missing something cause I know your drabbles are clever.

I do wonder, however, just how bad something has to be to qualify as an event that would cause Lenny to cuss at work.

Lenny has decided to stop cussing and cursing, so when Charles drops a car on him, his response is far less than expected.
