A routine oil change became a learning experience for three children at Runde Chevrolet recently.
Tony Thier, of Dubuque, had Sophie, Stella, and Henry with him when he stopped by for routine maintenance on their 2011 Chevy Suburban.
Tony asked their service writer if they could watch the oil change while they waited. Technician Al Gassman, who has worked at Runde’s for eight years, was glad to take them through the process.
“Al Gassman did an awesome job and made it a very educational experience for the kids and myself,” Tony said. “Note that we were coming in on a Saturday and I am sure Al was ready to get out of there.”
Al was in his element has he has small children of his own.
The experience was a memorable one for the children and parents Tony and Anna were thrilled.
“(It was) so much better than my kids sitting in the lobby watching the TV,” Tony said.
