I had a driver come in who works for a used auto dealership... he brought in paperwork, and asked me to do 2 different weights... "its a caddy, they all weight the same... " I told him that I could only do 1, and he handed me a cert for what he said was a 2003 caddy... I took him at his word that it was the correct paperwork... but something just kept tickling the back of my brain so I went out and looked at the vin number... yeppers the vin was entirely different than either of the 2 certificates that he had brought in... when I called him on it.. the quote was.. whats the big deal... my quote back to him was the question of... are you going to support me? ... guess what the answer was. . .
