Battery Man Reads Character as You Wait, He Declares

The Bisbee Daily Review
December 31, 1922


"Let me talk with a man ten minutes and I can pretty nearly tell you what kind of care he takes of his car.

"This may sound like a hard job," says Wright, Willard Service Station dealer, "but I believe I can do it.

"A man comes in some morning—shoes shined up—clean shave—neat as a pin. I say right away that man wouldn't drive a car that was a little bit out of adjustment. Everything's got to be just right.

"Another man comes in a hurry—talks fast, rushes out again. He's the sort of chap who's always doding in and out of traffic—jamming fenders and so on. He starts late to make an appointment and then tries to make up for it by speeding.

"A third one drops in—sort of easy going—and he's the worst of all. He's the sort who says, 'I know blamed well that motor needs some oil—I'll chuck some in next Sunday.' And then when Sunday comes he has something else on his mind and there's a bill to pay for new bearings.

"If anybody wants to study human nature, they ought to drop in here." says Wright. "While I don't pretend to be a teacher, I believe I could hand out a few hints on character reading at that."
