I am one of those people that makes car mechanics cringe when they hear how I deal with automotive problems. Even though I know something is not right with the car, I don’t usually have the knowledge and expertise to tell what it is, whether it is serious, and how it can be fixed. Responsible people take their cars in to the mechanic when they get the "something ain’t right" feeling and get the problem resolved. I, however will drive my car on I-25, feverishly hoping the problem will just go away so I won’t have to deal with it, that is until the car spontaneously combusts in rush hour traffic. Then, while everyone is honking, cursing and waving their fists at me I am forced to dial up the mechanic to see what can be done about the problem. I see this approach taken by some people in the veterinary arena in regards to lumps and bumps on their pets, and although I can sympathize with the sentiment, I hope I can inspire some of my fellow ostriches to try a more proactive approach instead.
