The Elephant in the Room Regarding Collision Repair Salt Lake City

Let us put aside our fears and discuss frankly and honestly the elephant in the room regarding collision repair Salt Lake City and its potential impact on the D. C. Auto Geek readership. Now, we all know what I mean by the phrase elephant in the room. When I use this phrase I am talking about a subject that is painfully obvious to all and yet nobody wants to talk about it for some reason of embarrassment or social taboo. But no elephant can be swept under the rug for too long. The obvious lump is too big to ignore or avoid indefinitely.

GETTING TO THE HEART OF COLLISION REPAIR SALT LAKE CITY

Now that we have established the unavoidable position that the elephant in the room must be addressed, actually addressing it becomes our next and most daunting challenge. If there is one thing that I (Jerry the Auto Geek) have learned in my many years on this planet it  is that honesty is the best policy. Now I know that this is a very worn out cliche. But there is truth to it and the truth of the matter is very simple indeed. That truth is, reality prefers the truth. Allow me to explain.

Reality deals in truth. Reality is only true. For this reason an untruth runs in contravention to reality and just like mother nature, reality always wins in the end. For this reason it is far better to be truthful (i. e., address the elephant in the room) than it can ever be to sweep it under the rug and hope nobody notices it. Although there is a temptation to do so because in the short term the carpet can to some degree cover the elephant. We all know the elephant is there but for a time we can pretend it is not.

Signs and Banners of a Good Time in Washington D. C.

There are signs and banners of good times to come in the city of Washington, D. C. The trees are beginning to bloom and harkening the more pleasant weather of springtime. We need to take advantage of this short window of good weather because before we know it the sweltering summer will be upon us. It is a cliche to say that Washington was built upon a swamp but it was (as far as I know). For some reason that makes it hotter here. Perhaps that is because the city is located on a low lying area and the humidity seems to sit here.

THE SIGNS AND BANNERS SAY JERRY THE GEEK IS BACK IN TOWN!

That is right my friend. Jerry the Geek is back in D. C. and he fixing to crash on your couch. This assumes that the reader of this blog post lives in D. C. and has a couch in their house or apartment. But that is a reasonable assumption to make because why would someone other than a person who lives in our nation’s capitol be reading a blog about automobiles in Washington, D. C.? The simple answer is that there is no reason. The more complex answer is that people who do live in Washington, D. C. probably are not reading this blog either.

None of that matters. I write my blog because I enjoy writing. I do not write my blog because I expect to gain a fan base doing it. Although if that happened I would not be opposed. My only point is that gathering an audience is not the primary reason for my writing this blog. It is not even in the top ten reasons for writing this blog. I am reasonably certain that it is in the top twenty reasons, however.

The Body Shop Salt Lake City of Work

If one wants to know the true measure of a man, he need only reference the man’s body shop Salt Lake City of work to see this squarely for himself. This is true because in the man’s body of work is reflected the man himself and vice versa. The man’s true essence is revealed through his body of work because his body of work represents the sum total of the man’s creative efforts. These creative efforts come from inside the man’s mind and soul. Accordingly, this reflection of his mind and soul is the true measure of the man and not the man’s physical attributes.

TRUTH IS REVEALED IN THE HEART OF THE BODY SHOP SALT LAKE CITY

For this reason when a man takes his car to a body shop what he is really doing is taking his car to a person who will then reflect his true self into the car through the repairs that he makes. His repairs are in this way a portion of his body of work. As such, the customer can see the true measure of the mechanic in the way in which he has repaired the customer’s car. In this way the customer sees into the mechanic’s soul.

Now there is another layer to all this. The customer’s car is not just a product that he owns. No, his car is his means of transport and his means to acquire a livelihood. In this respect the customer’s car is very important to him or her. In a sense it is an extension of himself or herself. For this reason when the customer offers up his or her car to the mechanic in order that (yes it can be repaired but also) it becomes a portion of the mechanic’s body of work something profound is occurring.

Using Vehicle Wraps to Advertise

The D. C. Auto Geek blog editorial board would like to discuss the use of vehicle wraps to advertise your business on a car or truck. When a person uses this technology to advertise they are essentially transforming their vehicle into a mobile billboard. The advantages to this type of advertising are legion. First of all the owner of the vehicle can transport his advertising to the location where he anticipates his potential audience to be. Second of all, the owner of the vehicle can take advantage of multiple locations on a single day or over an extended period of time.

VEHICLE WRAPS TAKE YOUR MESSAGE TO MULTIPLE LOCATIONS

The power of advertising is simple yet nuanced at the same time. Advertising is simple from a conceptual standpoint in that it is (typically) a visual display that is designed to influence a specific audience to perform some act such as purchase a product or service. In order for advertising to be effective it must contain an effective message and it must be positioned in a location where its intended audience is likely to see it and then to act upon its message. An effective message is one that is displayed in such a way that it catches its intended audience’s attention and is persuasive to that intended audience.

When a vehicle owner uses a wrap on his or her vehicle to advertise a particular message he or she is in a position to effectively convey his or her message. This does not necessarily be for the purpose of convincing a potential audience to purchase a product or service. This can be used (for example) to disseminate useful information. There are many situations such as a public service announcement where this might be a desirable outcome for any owner of a vehicle employing an advertising wrap.

The Metaphysics of Collision Repair Salt Lake City

Consider the collision repair Salt Lake City of an unstoppable force with an immovable object. Put aside for the moment that there can be no such thing as an immovable object or an unstoppable force. Obviously, the existence of the one makes the existence of the other impossible. For if an object is immovable then no force can dislodge it. In the same respect, if a force is unstoppable then no object can stand in its way. For these reasons only one of these can exist and probably neither can exist in the known reality of the existence in which we find ourselves.

THE IMPACT OF A MASSIVE COLLISION REPAIR SALT LAKE CITY

Proceeding with the understanding that neither an unstoppable force or an immovable object are likely to exist in our common experience, we may suspend our disbelief and enter the realm of the thought experiment. Let us say that this cataclysmic event actually did transpire. The question then arises, is there a collision repair shop (both in Salt Lake City or elsewhere) that can repair the damage in its aftermath? This is no small question to answer and is probably not a question that can be sufficiently answered within the scope of a three paragraph blog post.

Let it also be known that Jerry The Geek is neither an unstoppable force nor an immovable object. I am just a simple blog writer. Writing blogs is what I do. I do not generally stop forces or move objects (except those that I must move to make my way in the world such as picking up a coffee cup etc.). Be that as it may, because we are still within the realm of the thought experiment we may think of me as  an immovable object as my picture clearly depicts.

Feel the Heat Trace Auto Geeks!

I Jerry have climbed to the top of the Washington Monument in order to make my most awesome proclamation which is for all auto geeks to feel the heat trace today! You know very well what I mean so do not even pretend that you do not. In fact, you have been pretending not to know this very fact for some time now and that is precisely why you find yourself in the predicament that you do. But you must cast your fears aside in this matter and do what I tell you to do. It is the only thing that will set you free. Believe me.

FEEL THE FREEDOM THAT IS THE HEAT TRACE

You shall never know what your life could have been without following my instructions. There is something insulating about saying no and sticking one’s proverbial head in the proverbial sand. In that place you can cultivate a comfort zone. But somewhere deep in your heart where the truth is kept under lock and key you will know. And a creeping sense of dissatisfaction will begin to pervade your life in subtle ways. At first you will find yourself becoming irritated with small things. New you will observe yourself acting out passive aggressively.

You will find that the people in your life will begin to draw away from you. You will sense an absence of love but you will blame them for it. Never consciously realizing that all the while the fault lay with you. All because you choose not to follow my advice and do what I have instructed you to do. There is always a time for forgiveness until the time runs out. So I would advise you not to wait too long. There is the temptation to put things off until the next life but there are no guarantees there.

Signs and Banners of Spring

It is February now but already in North Carolina I am seeing signs and banners of the coming spring. The trees are starting to bud. There are flowers poking through the soil. The birds are making an appearance. Although they never really disappeared in this area. The air has a certain sense of spring about it as well. This is a quality that is difficult to describe. But if I had to describe it in words I would say that there is a certain fragrant softness to it. There is also a pleasant and moist sort of quality to the air as well.

SIGNS AND BANNERS OF THINGS TO COME

I grew up in Connecticut and am still adapting to this warmer, southern climate. I am used to a cold and long winter where it starts to get cold in October and stays cold until the end of March. In the south, one day can be thirty degrees but the next day can be seventy degrees. I find it a little unsettling. There is something refreshing about a long and cold winter and making it out the other side in the spring. It is a feeling of rebirth in a sense.

I suppose eventually I will become accustomed to my new, adopted climate. Then again maybe I will not. I have been living here for four years and it still feels a little strange to me. The summers are brutally hot. In a sense, the summers in the south are like the winters in the north. It starts to get hot in May and it stays hot all the way until September. Yes, that is it. Winter is the dominant season of the North the way Summer is the dominant season of the South. I wonder if it will ever feel normal to me.

Repair Your Auto Body Salt Lake City

Once again the readers of the D. C. Auto Geek Blog have been clammoring for an article about auto body Salt Lake City. I suppose all the other articles we have written on the subject were not sufficient to satiate this unmet need. I further suppose that the readers require all these articles because they need information about repairing auto bodies in the city of Salt Lake City. It remains a mystery to me why the readers of a blog about automobiles in the city of Washington, D. C. need to read about auto body repair shops in Salt Lake City.

READING ABOUT AUTO BODY SALT LAKE CITY

It cannot be denied, however, that these requests keep rolling in. If you doubt me, I invite you to come to the D. C. Auto Geek Blog world headquarters building.

If I am available I will gladly walk you down to our mail room archieves where we store these letters in redwells and bankers boxes.

So that is the purpose of this article. I respect our loyal readers and endevor to the best of my ability to attend to their needs. And that is really what the D. C. Auto Geek Blog is all about and has been about since its very inception. Hopefully this will be the final article on the subject and we can get back to the very important business of writing about automobiles and the great city of Washington, D. C. which is of course our nation’s capital. Although Salt Lake City is the capital of the state of Utah it is not our nation’s capital. That point must be distinctly understood or nothing wonderful can come from this tale.

Collision Repair Salt Lake City In 2017

As the readers of the D. C. Auto Geek Blog know, this is the time of year when we release our annual predictions related to collision repair Salt Lake City in the coming year. Before we begin let us address the fair question as to why a blog concerning itself with auto related issues in the city of Washington, D. C. would release a yearly forecast regarding collision repair in Salt Lake City, Utah. Again, the editorial board of the D. C. Auto Geek Blog agrees that this would absolutely be a fair question to ask. That said, we ask that the reader of the D. C. Auto Geek blog take it as a matter of faith that there is a perfectly good reason for this.

Over the River and Through the Woods to the Auto Body Repair Salt Lake City

There is an old song made famous in the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving cartoon entitled “Over the River and Through the Woods.” The song progresses to reveal the destination of this trek which as it turns out is “Grandmother’s House.” My fellow D. C. Auto Geeks probably all have fond childhood memories traveling to a relative’s house to celebrate some holiday be it Christmas, Thanksgiving or some other holiday. In the Charlie Brown cartoon, we see the kids climbing into the back of a very spacious station wagon. For some reason we never see the adults. Even their voices are obscured. Perhaps this demonstrates the separate world that children live in.

Auto Body Repair Salt Lake City Never to be Seen

It is never revealed where the characters in the Charlie Brown universe live. Presumably they live in the United States and since we see snow in the Christmas cartoon we can assume they live somewhere in the North. The Midwest would be my best guess. We can probably rule out them living in the Salt Lake City area given the topography we see. So there is no chance that if the station wagon were to crash on the way to grandmother’s house that it would eventually find itself in an auto body repair Salt Lake City.

Be that as it may, there is no indication that a car accident even occurs in the first place. The cartoon ends with them en route. There is also a scene at the end where Charlie Brown’s dog Snoopy and his bird friend Woodstock enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey and pumpkin pie. I often wonder if this could be considered a form of cannibalism. That is, Woodstock who is a bird himself is seen eating a turkey which is also a bird. True, they are different species of birds so perhaps it is not something to actually worry myself about.
