Telephone Customer" Can you fit a glass and hands back in a watch?"
Me" I can probably replace the glass and refit the hands, what kind of watch is it?"
"A vintage mechanical gents watch"
"No, it would probably need a service, and I don't service mechanicals any more."
( life is much better since just stopping all mechanical repairs)
" it's never had or needed a service, just pop the old glass on and fit the hands on, I dropped it and the hands and glass fell off."
"Definetly not"
I redirected him to a specialist, and prepared him for a larger bill than he expected.
I only multi-task at work, don't tell my wife.

Sounds more like another repair shop bit off more than they could chew and needed you to put it right

more like a serial fiddler  , I had an uncle like that  used to take the  back off the telly ( to replace the valves )  he must have spent more money  paying to have his balls ups  fixed than he saved,  once the kitchen table was an 8th of an inch out so he took a  saw too it  , he ended up with a large coffee table
