"I am in control" said the general

Most of us remember General Haig uttering those words in error after President Reagan was shot. I have a true story tied to that and my DC area location.

Working at the DC areas best 12V shop and only OEM radio repair less than a year after he said that none other than Mrs Haig comes in the shop and I get to wait on her.

She says who she is and makes sure to let us know her time is quite limited. She is dressed very well. We bring the vehicle in the shop within 10 minutes or so of her arrival for a radio INOP complaint.

After it was in less than ten minutes she is again demanding answers acting very impatient. Turns out to be a fuse and after I came back from the shop with the diagnosis I said "I am in control". I was worried of backlash but did it anyway. She missed it or didn't care.

Truth is stranger than fiction
