He hadn't even bothered to use a generic substitute, just cynically torqued the nut probably with a smirk on his face. I know what happened to the washer thirty years ago. It's why I try to keep my shop clean (I take a lot of flak over my fussiness). It has to do with the immutable law governing all tiny things dropped in the workshop - you guys would know what I'm talking about.

In the meantime, I'm going into radio silence mode for a while - I have just enough parts to keep me busy for a few days.
The mechanic didn't lose the washer off your bike. He lost the one off his bike. Guess where he got another one?

My view of human nature is not doing well...
