Uh, other than Canada I do not see a location anywhere in the posting. If the shop has a website you need to post a link to that as well.

There's no such thing as a routine repair.

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please take the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!

LOL Or maybe it was left out intentionally. I'm guessing that if you can't dig up a web address and check the company out before making an application - you'll probably fall short in a lot of the other requirements too.

But here's the preview spoiler.
