Go out and help

I had no idea how to repair a scratch on the paint of a metallic surface and I was going mad trying to find some video online that showed me how to do it.

I tried some suggestions but they were not what I needed. There are not many answers online for my particular problem.

So, I was about to quit and accept to live with that scratch when, while walking in a busy street, I saw an old man creating real masterpieces on metallic plates with his fingers and a few other handmade tools.

I stood there for a few minutes contemplating in awe the ability of that man and the wonderful paintings he was creating in a few minutes, right before an admired crowd.

After a while, he began to pick up his belongings and his unsold paintings, so I decided to approach him and ask for his advice on how to solve my problem.

I told him about the scratch and how I had made it worst by attempting to “fix it” trying different methods. He looked at me amused.

I offered to pay him if he could do something to make it look better and he was very surprised because for him, that was a minor job.  Something extremely easy.

I showed him the problem and in a few minutes, he left it as good as new.

He even refused to charge me for that job, but I insisted to compensate his knowledge, his technique, and his time, without any of that I would still be “suffering” that scratch.
