A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage.
A blond came in and asked for a seven-hundred-ten.
We all looked at each other and another customer asked,
‘What is a seven-hundred-ten?’
She replied, ‘You know, the little piece in the middle of the
engine, I have lost it and need a new one.’
She replied that she did not know exactly what it was, but this
piece had always been there. The mechanic gave her a piece of
paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like.
She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710. He then
took her over to another car which had its hood up and asked
‘is there a 710 on this car?’ She pointed and said,
‘Of course, it’s right there.’

My sister will kill me for posting this but…
I came home from school one day to find my sister in our driveway with the hood up on her station wagon.
She was bent over the engine block, staring intently at something.
On closer inspection, I saw that she had the 710 in hand and she was repeatedly taking it on and off…on and off…and then looking down inside.
When I asked her what she was doing, she replied, “I’m trying to check the oil but I think I broke the dipstick off.”
I smiled…and moved her hand about 4 inches to the left to where the dipstick was.
