Default I'm feeling guilty

I've just booked a mobile mechanic to replace the front pads on my 307.

I've replaced loads of pads in the past and it is a failry simple job. I'm simply being lazy.

Does this make me a bad person?

not at all...in fact it makes you a good person as you are helping create jobs and keeping that guy in business soo cheesy

but for being lazy, you now have to go for a 5 mile run.....RUN!

Check this out -

15.45 - mechanic turns up at the appointed time
16.05 - pads replaced
16.06 - clanless asks mechanic to look at oil leak
16.10 - mechanic glances at engine and advises it is a diesel leak
16.11 - clanless looks shocked - as he had convinced himself that it is an oil leak
16.15 - mechanic tightens up rail pressure sensor - leak stops
16.20 - mechanic stuffs notes into wallet - clanless is happy
16.21 - actors exit stage right

Bearing in mind, I spoke to the mechanic around noon today.

His phone number is now on my 'best friends' mobile list.
