This post is about WD-40. Let me start off by saying that the following is not an advertisement and I don’t get any financial remuneration for passing along the this information. I simply would like to let you know about a relatively inexpensive solvent that I have been using for years, partly because it seems to be safe, partly because it’s cheap, and partly because of its remarkably wide range of uses.

Below is a story from an e-newsletter my wife and I receive from a restaurant where we enjoy eating breakfast. It’s a completely unpretentious place with consistently delicious food and a delightful serving staff, located right across from the ocean here in San Diego.

As you’re about to read, she describes how she and her staff handled an utter absence of everyday integrity on the part of a couple of restaurant patrons.
