Returning home from shopping one day in '93 (I think it was), I found a
case of beer on the passenger seat of my trusty old '80 Jetta. A friend who
owed me the beer passed by, found me gone and opened the door of my car
with the key of his '84 Passat. It only worked on the driver's door with
its worn-out lock.
I proceeded to have said friend help me replace the locks on my car with
fresh items- next time it'd be something taken out of the car instead of
put in.

I don't want any yes-men around me. I want everybody to tell me the truth
                     even if it costs them their jobs.
