Einstein’s Customer Quotables
“I stopped into the Overland Store this weekend and was helped by one of your mechanics. He was very knowledgeable and helped me quickly diagnose a problem I have been trying to fix. He didn’t have to but went out of his way to help me. So I just wanted to give recognition to running a great business.”

If we come together as members of the Bronco community, it gives other people the chance to see just what is so special about Boise State. “

Einstein’s Wisdom Of The Week
“We all know that light travels faster than sound. That’s why certain people appear bright until you hear them speak.”
Parallel Parking Made Easy
You’re still on the lookout for a parking space, and after the third trip around the block it’s beginning to feel like a futile search. Then you spy it just ahead – a parked car, left turn signal flashing, starting to inch out of an on-street parking space. You flash the lights to let them know it’s ok to pull out, and then you prepare to strike… and sweat. Really sweat. It’s a spot that requires parallel parking.
Relax! You can do this, even if the last time you parallel parked was during the road test for your driver’s license. Follow a few simple tips and you’ll successfully parallel park your vehicle between two parked vehicles. Here’s how.
1. Choose Your Spot
Choose a parking space you’re comfortable maneuvering into, based on your vehicle size in relation to the parking space, and your parallel parking abilities. Be realistic, even if you’re desperate.
2. Ready the Attack
Use your turn signal to indicate your intention to claim the spot and alert the vehicles behind you. Look in your rearview mirror to ensure there aren’t cars directly behind you. Then forget about them; they’ve been in your position before and can wait for you to finish. No need to add stress by worrying about other drivers at this moment.
3. Visualize the ‘S’
Pull up even with or a few feet behind the bumper of the front car while leaving a two- to three-foot buffer between you and that car. It helps to visualize the maneuver you’re about to execute as an “S.”

“The men were very nice and helpful. You get a free drink and a newspaper; we went on a Sunday so we got the free Sunday paper (yippee!) Plus their coupon is an extra nice deal. The two men that helped us were nice and Noe checked our car to see why it was showing the “check engine” light (for free).”
