Vancouver mechanic uses service report to remind customer that the Leafs suck

History has already shown us that Vancouverites + hockey + cars = shenanigans. So it should come as no surprise that this helpful equation even extends to auto service, as a recent Leafs fan discovered during a trip to a Vancouver mechanic.

“My car had just been broken into,” Redditor jamaniax explains. “They popped the door lock out, but the only thing they stole was $3.25 in change I keep for grocery cart rentals.”

But according to the mechanic, in typical mechanic fashion, the real problem with the car wasn’t that the lock needed to be replaced — it was that the car’s owner is a Leafs fan.

Above is one page of the receipt — the diagnostic report, which notes that the auto owner needs to replace his catalytic converter, and that the Leafs suck. Knowing this is as important as getting your oil changed every six months.

Below is another page of the service report. It points to a few problems with the 2001 Volkswagen Jetta. The check engine light is on, for one thing, which is a sign of future engine failure. But the car is also suffering from present failure, because the owner is a Leafs fan.

Finally, here’s the list of services rendered. But it doesn’t just detail work done to fix the car after the break-in, like recoding the lock. It also editorializes as to who the culprit was in the first place.

The mechanic suspects it was Dave Bolland. Seems reasonable.
