Rear Differential Serviced

The wheel and the axle fell off my car again, for the third time.
There are sealed bearings and there are tapered bearings,
one of the two makes your wheel fall off, and your axle.
This time my mechanic Louise is going to use the ones
that keep the wheels on. He is also fixing any additional
damage that was caused by this latest mistake.
He is doing this because he is liable, and because
he feels bad because when the wheel came off
I could have been killed, or killed somebody.
I told him not to worry, that I already know how I am going to die.
I know how u-joints work, what can cause low oil pressure,
and what steering fluid smells like—its pink and smells chalky.
I am going to drive my car to Las Vegas to make sure it works right.
