    Your anecdote about 2 similar conversations was unusually self-aware for people, in general. That being said, you sound like someone who is a better boss than an employee. Just make sure you create a business and not a job.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jayson Cunningham says:

    have faith good things happen to those who wait some times you half to make things happen . I know you are good mech it might be good time open your new shop. i know you had one befor it is time to open your wings and fly again .

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Geoff Young says:

    Good luck for the future, love the video's.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Houlihan says:

    Didn't see that one coming but ok?please don't leave us in the dark you're an awesome mechanic!

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul says:

    Shame you couldn't explain what happened. Would have been curious.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt D says:

    Ray, unless you are a very, very different person & mechanic when off the camera, the garage just lost a very, very valuable asset. BTW, eastern MA really needs good mechanics!!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John me says:

    I am so sorry that you were not fully appreciated there. I have no doubt that a mechanic of your caliber, honest, hardworking and knowledgeable, will not lack for employment and or customers of your own should that be your desire. Please keep everyone in the loop and we will continue to support you as best we can. Or we could just bug you with car problems/ questions while you are between career paths. Such as why when I replaced the rear rotors and calipers on the wife's 2016 Soul I now have no parking brakes. I've adjusted it as far as it will go and it allllllmost holds. I'm sure others have equally perplexing dilemmas that can help to keep you mentally sharp and focused on car repairs. 😁 Congrats on climbing to 449K subs. That should tell you how people feel. I'm sure you will land on your feet soon. God Bless you and your family Ray.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Conrad Morin says:

    Ray, I was surprised with your announcement of today.>>>Ray, from my personal experience, and I am in my early 70's, although this situation came about a little earlier than planned, I have no doubt that you will come out way ahead than had you remained at that dealership. You are an exceptional mechanic with good moral and ethical values, and I have no doubt that whatever your future endeavors may be, you will succeed, and I wish you, as your family the very best. >>>If you can, I hope that you and your wife can take a bit of a holiday in the meantime. I will be looking forward to your future videos. From a big fan of yours, in Ontario, Canada.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Curtis Shaffer says:

    Been following you for long enough (a while before you departed the dealership job) and I believe you're a great technician who has integrity and does the best at doing right by the customer so I think it is definitely no a you issue . Good luck with your future endeavors and hope to see you back soon

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars C. B. says:

    How many square feet and when do you close?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray Penn says:

    I wish you the best of luck. Your channel is awesome. I'm sure you be back on a crawler in days.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Max Eaves says:

    Oh Ray. They have lost a great mechanic. Their loss, not yours. I hope that whatever is in the pipeline works out well. Time to catch up on jobs at home and work out your next move. We are ALL right behind you my friend.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CM C says:

    At least you wont have to hear that phone everyday! Hope your next place is your very own shop closer to home.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ajmcneilly says:

    Dang. That sucks dude. Onward and upward.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Moon says:

    At least we wont be hearing that bloody aweful phone ringer every again! I would have introduced that to the bin long ago!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars joeyz2k says:

    Ray they lost the MOST valuable employee it is totally their loss… I absolutely love watching your videos as a former mechanic school student although I never wound up doing it for a living bc I started working for a horrible shop which ruined my passion to work on cars for a while I still work on my personal cars and for others time to time. You bring the faith back into mechanics with your honesty and great work, most people ruined our image with being crooks and robbing people. I can truly see you owning your own shop and being completely successful. Please keep making great content as much as you can while you think about your next journey

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrTallwilly says:

    Im glad you left that shxx hole place time for better environment. Good mechanics deserve better work space.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duh Wolf says:

    I can't get my employer to fire me. They act like no one will drive a semi as cheap as I do. Keep on doing you man, Change is often for the better.🚚

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason says:

    Some people can't handle people like yourself and I work for myself as I'm very blunt and come as a dick because I do not sugar coat anything if you can't handle the truth don't ask not you but the people I offend all the time be your own boss brother you'll be fine

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Lembke says:

    Best of Luck in next job. Maybe open your own repair shop and be your own boss?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Lockerbie says:

    I will drive my car from Houston for you to work on it, you are an amazing tech!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars clickallnight says:

    Hope you land a good shop soon Ray! You know some people turn off Google Maps voice directions 🤨

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars voyageur1998 says:

    why you dont open your own shop

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zannus says:

    Why did you have your own ceiling lights and trash can?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Gambler says:

    Ok Ray, as for why, I think it’s your fault, but not for the reason you may think. I believe the true blame lies with your inability to properly communicate your side articulately when the conversation becomes elevated. Maintaining a calm volume and more importantly making your point of view so well, that your opponent realizes they have NO relevant argument.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matias Gonzales says:

    Their loss! Looking forward to seeing what is in your future bud!

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Hagen says:

    Sh1t happens to u s all, even the good guys. But it opens up new opportunities and helps us discover options we never thought about before. Endings can be brutal but new stuff lies ahead, and that can be exciting. Good luck to you!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brent McMahon says:

    You do a good job ! When dealing with the public it sucks big time !!!!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NAVAHO says:

    Hey, start a mobile mechanic business, you know your trade so you won't have any problems cheers.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Steward says:

    Trailer chains, I cross them. I was taught to do it that way by my father. Life long boater, never lost a trailer in 40+ years of towing.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raul Bermudez says:

    That shop can’t hold the great rainmaniny! The auto mechanical magician will be back! And more grander than ever! Mmhmm! Yes yes!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kwaka140 says:

    I went through a similar thing at my old work a bit over a year ago. My suggestion is not to rush into the next job if you don't have to. Sit back, think about it. I wish you all the best and look forward to future videos

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Juan Vega says:

    you should open your own shop with the insentive of recording all repairs. who ever gets hired has to agree to those terms as well. you can throw all the videos on your channel and give each tech a % cut of whatever the videos makes. your videos are easy to follow and have helped so many. hope nothing but the best for you.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars big D says:

    Cross is right way

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ju M says:

    No more doo-dee-doo…. oh no, what sound will you do now? Good luck to you Ray! With a work ethic like yours, it won't be luck. They've lost a good employee who helped build a reputation for their shop.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr Spof says:

    Looking forward to new videos from a new venue. Enjoy the holiday season, Ray!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mythryl says:

    You are a talented maccie you will land on your feet. Usually a relationship breakdown happens from both sides. But management are supposed to rise above that and work through it.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rexy619 says:

    All the best mate, change is as good as a Holiday. I myself am about to undergo a career change, scary but exciting 👍

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kev R says:

    Onto bigger and better things 👍

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dino Diaz says:

    Take care look forward to your next adventures. Thier loss.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ZeroGrxvity says:

    Critique:
    Don't be so concerned about making videos for yt like getting the best angle and focus more on work and maybe look further ahead so that the lift doesn't because occupied by a disassemble car.

    But I much appreciate the honesty towards the costumers and the learning aspect of your videos.
    And I would like to know the reason why you got the boot and not only what you think it might be.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars roger marsson says:

    You be right mate,keep on keeping on…. You will only live for so long so be sure to divide you time up between work and family and if shit hits the fan always choose Family first…..

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mice InOz says:

    I cross my chains. Hard to give an opinion on your situation without knowing details about the discussion that got out of hand though. I also wanted to work another year, but Covid screwed that up for a whole lot of us. Jesus! You work in a workshop and have to provide everything? Aside from air and electricity, what did the company provide?

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Christopher Engelhardt says:

    Queue this shop joining the ranks of employers who cry about not being able to find people after they boot good people due to ego.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Teleha says:

    Sad news but wishing you all the best in your future endeavors!

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars incognitiously says:

    This is incredibly crap news! It sucks when management changes and leaves things for so much the worse.

    I'm glad that you've got stuff in the works for the near future. Wishing you all the best!

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kenthatfr says:

    The reality of that last doodly-doo really hit home. Wonder what the next one will be…
