Dirty hands are part of the trade, unless you are Sean and work with gloves. Sometimes after work I would go out and be a little embarrassed about how dirty they were. Then I'd see another mechanic out and their hands looked like mine and I knew I was in good company. There is something to be said about working with your hands. A sense of accomplishment after a job well done. I am going to miss it. In reality after all of my hand surgeries and the more surgery I need, being a mechanic right now isn't the best idea.... but, I will miss it.
