    I am a clean mechanic, seems I can manage to do most stuff without rolling around in the grease. No need to wipe hands on pants.

    You might be a mechanic if the bottom drawer of the roll cab contains in no particular order.

    1. an old speedo cable (for stringing wire)
    2. various sizes of "cheap wrenches" bent to do one specific job
    3. two (or more) dried up tubes of silicon
    4. approximately 31 pieces of wire: spark plug, mechanic's wire,16 gauge, 14 gauge, 12 gauge and in all different colors and no longer than 2 feet.
    5. Broken trailer plug connector
    6. new block heater cord
    7.twelve tie straps aka.zap straps
    8.an ignition module from something that might fit something and might be good.
    9. several partially used rolls of tape: duct tape, electrical tape, masking tape, Kenny Rogers and the First Edition tape
    10. Various ointments and salves to help the auto perform to it's utmost capabilities.

    I am sure that there are more but am scared to venture any further into that pit.

    1. You look at objects and see what they COULD be used for.
    2. Regardless of the parts condition or cost. You take it apart to see how it works (or worked)
    3. Your wife uses power tools to clean the tub
    4. You don't think twice when wearing "nice" clothes to elbows deep into a repair
    5. Your tool purchase addiction rivals the cost of a crack heads addiction
    6. You will buy a tool just because it MIGHT be useful one day
    7. Your world is directly controlled by Murphy and his F@#King laws
    8. You read the posts on this topic and nod your head

    You might be a mechanic if everyday you ask yourself how did I get myself into this mess.
