The motor

My car is in for a service and tune. Any moment now I am expecting a call from the garage with a just discovered problem.

I have been using the same garage for a couple of decades. The owner is very friendly to me and my partner. He enquired this morning if we were still working full time and where we are living. How old does he think we are? I told him and hoping for sympathetic pricing for work done, pointedly metioned that we had a large mortgage to pay. It won't work, I know, but I don't want him to think we are well off enough or old enough to give up work.
