I'm having my motorcycle mechanic install special exhaust pipes on my motorcycle that will make it louder—for safety reasons, of course.
When Scout got wind of this project, she objected strongly.
"That's rude," she said.
"Telling your mechanic to make your motorcycle louder. His job is to make motorcycles better, not louder."
"And making it louder is making it worse?
"Yes, and you shouldn't ask him to make it worse."
So far, she hadn't said anything wrong.
I thought a minute.
"What if I tell the mechanic to 'enhance the engine's volume'?"
"That's better," Scout instantly agreed, and happily dropped the subject.
