SHORT STORY


TITLE: What If A Oil Change

This was a Challenge story. I didnít have a challenge buddy to edit it for me. Please look at my grammar.
The what ifís of life happened on one Saturday, when I attempted to get an oil change. The mechanic noticed my oil was clean and advised me to wait. I agreed it was better to wait until a future time. The only problem is they had started to drain my oil. The mechanic put the drain plug back in and added a few quarts of oil and I was on my way.

On Tuesday when I was at work by chance I noticed that oil was dripping from my car.

I called the shop where I had the oil change done, "Express Lube," said the voice on the other line.

"The other day when you almost did an oil change on my car you didn't tighten my drain plug. My car is dripping oil."

"I'm sorry about that, although you'll need to get you car in here right away."

"I can't, Iím at work and I use public transportation my car will not be on that side of town until Friday."

"Okay sir, but youíll need to watch your oil level if you donít you engine could blow up."

"I will I'll see you on Friday," and then hung up.

I have a job that is mindless. My mind started to wonder and think about the problem. I couldn't see the drain plug when I bent down and looked under my car. What if, itís not the bolt? What if itís a major leak? What if my engine blows up? What if the repair bill costs a lot of money? It's the middle of the day; I can't leave work and go get my car looked at.

There were a lot of what if's that day. Later that day I took my car to a shop that is close to my work. It took only thirty seconds for them to tighten the bolt up. After that there was not more leak. I did pray but I didnít trust God. This problem was not as big a I thought
