Well i am having a tough, tough time these days with this big word.
After being baited into buying a jug of oil with a view to saving a few dollars but more importantly teaching my clean handed video game texting teenager how to get dirty and under a car, i decided to change the oil on Loml's car. This generation are going to get taken to the cleaners.
So get under to find the drain plug has been tightened or cross threaded so darn tight i now have had to postpone the job. Will try again later today this time with a pipe wrench seeing as how the vice grips would not do it.
I have been taking this car to the local 10 minute guys and they been a nice bunch i thought. But after this episode i am all out of trust.
I have dang had it with this word.
I am tired of being deceived and lied to. From Parents who felt it better to protect us from something rather than tell us the truth, through to governments and political leaders that thought they knew whats good for me and my country, through to school teachers that played along, down to bosses that lied while they had their hands in the till, to financial institutions that lied to steal your business from under you nose, to retailers with their deceiving adverts and to the latest an Airforce colonel of ours in Canada that committed some horific crimes and has just been sentenced and finally to the guy doing my oil change.
Never mind my extreme disapointment at fallen Priests, Scoutleaders etc that have been exposed in recent times.
Sorry but its all been a bit too much. Is there anyone with integrity and honesty left in this world or am I on the wrong planet. Whats so hard to having these values.
I am i just old fashioned???? Does being in fashion mean you lie to everyone and cheat everyone you can just because you can?
Man this drain plug was the final straw that made me snap. Its a $6 item. You would think these guys of all people would know how to tighten it and even have spares for the various cars on hand in the event they find one thats had it from some previous butcher.
Its always been my belief that one has to spread the money around somewhat so guys in the service business actually get some trade, and the economy keeps turning, but this kind of thing makes me just plain mad.
Never mind this following on from an episode i had just recently doing my brakes. Had top of the line brakes shipped to my door for my Jeep including rotors for $356 all in and that from the USA direct so it included all the fees involved and it was not the cheapest supplier. Had them priced to be done by the guy i know up the road $1400. Now come on this just does not make sense. I did not want to pay the rent on his property for the whole month in one job. So he lost out and i did them myself and taught the youngster another lesson.
Whats going on???? Am i the only one loosing it. or am i
Please tell me i am not alone.
