"I knew this would happen."
You grumble to yourself, frustration building as you watch today's paycheck slip away as the minutes turn into hours. You even recognized the problem yesterday and knew it would eventually break.
But what could you do? You didn't have any tools on hand, and surely dispatch would get you into the shop soon enough to have a technician take care of it.
