I’ll take ‘family, friends, and a quiet life’ over ‘a chain of garages’ any day of the week and twice on Sundays
Of course there’s nothing wrong with opening a chain and getting rich but yes, I’ll take an honest old German mechanic in an unpretentious little shop you wouldn’t look at twice, discovered by word of mouth from another decent small businessman in your town, over ‘the Cottman shuffle’ (in which they say they have to take your transmission apart to find out what’s wrong, charging you for it, and then try to sell you a new transmission for thousands no matter what the truth is).
