Like most of you, I also got into the bandwagon and admittedly enjoyed the Christmas rush. Yes, I also complained, but during the week (or rather day) leading to December 25, I pretty much joined the hoard of people hurrying through what needs to be done for this season. Yes, that means getting stuck in traffic and losing myself in the crowds to pick presents.
Did they say the slow economy has caused less buying this year? I sure did not feel it with the long lines in counters and sold out items! Yes, the holiday season may cause a lot of stress, but it is fun and part of tradition already. I could not picture myself having a calm, serene Christmas with no crowds and traffic. Well, I can picture it but where’s the fun in that?
I have to admit, though, that another thing that is not fun is not thinking or coming up with a good gift for yourself. Well, as you may notice, I am a believer of the school of thought that as much as you imbibe and practice the spirit of giving and sharing to others this season, you should also practice is with yourself. I mean, I survived another year, so I think that deserves a nice Christmas reward, right?
But I also realize that with the passing of every year, it can be quite difficult to come up with a gift idea that I will like, much more impress me. I know myself enough to think that typical gifts of new clothes or shoes are not really my thing, but at the same time, intangibles like peace of mind and maturity can be quite cheesy. So, how can you satisfy yourself when it comes to what you are giving yourself this season?
Just a few days ago, in the midst of the holiday rush, I witnessed a rather usual incident in a parking lot that gave me an idea on what I should give myself this Christmas. The car in front of me got dented by another car that was about to park. With holiday stress close to their peak already, I was witnessing a heated discussion on where the damaged car should be repaired. While it was good for the driver of the other car to claim responsibility and not run away from the situation, the demands of someone whose precious car now has a dent, combined with the levels of temper people having this season can be a tricky thing to deal with.
I went home, thinking I finally have everything figured out. To have a present for myself that would give me contentment and a great deal of peace of mind and at the same time, to take care of what I already have, I have to look for not just any repair shop for my car, but a top-grade collision repair center that will surely cater to any event and need.
After searching the Internet for great body shop options, I came across D&D Body Shop on North Amphlett in San Mateo. I got a lot of information from the website, but I’m the type who believes only after seeing. So, I went to their facility to check whether they can back up what I read on their website. True enough, the facilities impressed me, the equipment are top notch, and chatting with their collision repair specialists assured me that their I-CAR GOLD certifications are not on paper only, but will make a world of difference if they should do something to my Japanese car or my European sports car.
This holiday season, I can finally breathe a sigh of relief as I now know what to give myself – the best car restoration services with D&D Body Shop.
