  •  Talking about a refund (7+ / 0-)

    will definitely come up if I have to take it back again. The thing is, I'm so sick of this shop and how long I have to wait for them to work on the car that I'm almost tempted to take it to another one, since I'm reasonably sure it's not a catastrophic problem that is going to cost an arm and a leg (and since I'm reasonably sure it's not the transmission). Well, it is a chain, so I could probably go to another shop with the same name. We'll see.

    Homosexuality is found in over 450 species. Homophobia is found in only one. Which one seems unnatural now?

    •  I don't hear anything "catastrophic" (4+ / 0-)

      in the symptoms you are relaying .

      I worked for a guy who people thought highly of .
      He would take in repair jobs , he would charge as much as he thought he could get away with . If a piece of equipment only needed batteries , he would quote a full repair job , replace the batteries and "fix" the equipment .

      When I ran my own shop people would bring me equipment that only needed batteries , I'd call them up and say they needed batteries , some would ask me how much for the batteries and I would tell them to go buy some at longs , that I was not in the battery selling business .

      My old boss would take all the easy repairs for himself , make the money off of the easy jobs for himself
      and hand the big jobs to the workers to do .
      He would "repair" many a day
      while the workers would work all day on the big jobs .
      The easy jobs and the big jobs were quoted the same .
      The easy jobs were over priced and the big jobs were under priced . The workers got minimum wage plus a % on each unit .
