Whats it Called?

Someone please tell me what to call the hole in the ground where the mechanic stands when he does the repairs on my car from underneath?

It is a pit or a mechanic’s pit.

Thank you so much. I thought that was too simple, but I guess I was thinking too hard.

That place is called where you end up when you don’t live your life to your full potential.

That is cold. I have had college graduates washing dishes in the restaurant business, and they were happy. Given the grand number of people loosing their s in the stock market or guys like madoff who face the next 150 years in jail there is nothing wrong with doing an honest days work for an honest days living.
