a conundrum

I, having had the 1.9TDi Galaxy with the mechanic I use for some wee bits and pieces doing.
Said car is 10 years old with 198,000 miles on
Then took her to England to the APF show
The wee darling decided to sieze in 5th gear, totally out of the blue, going for third on a roundabout and "oops"
And me no having any breakdown insurance
So I limped to a layby and fiddled with her bits, and got all gears except 5th and reverse, which wre absolutly physically blocked.
I continued on my way
and took her back to the mechanic once home
Collected her 24 hours later, paid him £31.00
asked what he had done
Drained the oil to check for "bits"
Oil was free of impurities but not much of it.
so he refilled the box,
and hey presto a perfect hot knife through butter gearchange.
He was ADAMENT that he had not touched the cables or selectors or anything else, except change the oil.
If anyone had told me that storey I would have surmised their mental cogs were slipping
