    What's the deal with tire shops? Why do you have to beg the guy to order a set of $130 (each) tires to put on your car? Why do I have to call 3 times to find out if and when he can get them. A why the f**k do I have to leave the car for him to put the f**king tyres on. It's a FU*KING tire store, order the tires ask me for a deposit if you think I'm a sc*mbag and schedule me so I'm in and out like a paying customer not like your a Doctor who needs to attend to dying patient.

    I don't have any of these issues at Discount Tire stores. Though maybe only my local one is good.

    Went to the local Goodyear store last Friday, Drove out about one hour later with a brand new balanced tire. Took an hour because they were busy. Sometimes I go to the local Sears store. Prices seem to be the same.

    Heh, the boobs don't solve anything. I was in getting SOMETHING fixed in my Yuke (it was computer oriented, I wanted NO part) and some guy asked for a 4/16ths. I couldn't help it..."You mean a quarter inch?"

    His reply? "No getting lippy with me about my job, girlie, what do you know about cars?"

    ...

    "Plenty, but that's math, pal."

    He shakes his head and goes back to working...while the three porters in earshot cracked up.

    Long story short: Beauty may only be skin deep, but smartass is to the bone.

    Take your money somewhere else. Bad customer service more often than not equals shoddy workmanship. If the guy at the desk doesn't want to help you, it stands to reason that the guys in the back don't give a shit either. At that holds true for the fab. shops I've worked in.

    The Ford dealership where I bought my truck used to pull this shit on me all the time. I'd book in for an appointment at say 10am (usually book a week ahead) and when I'd get there, they'd tell me that they wouldn't be able to get it in until 1 or 2. I actually kind of lost it at the service manager because no one seemed to think that they should give me a call instead of wasting 3-5 hrs of my time. One time I dropped it off in the morning before work, came back at 5 to pick it up and they hadn't even started on it yet, I had to drive it home and bring it back the next morning and the numb bastards refused to give me a discount or a courtesy car (I had to take a cab to work from the dealership 2 days in a row $$). Now that the warranty's over, I can actually shop around.

    You are the customer, don't put up with being screwed around.

    Don't have any of those places by me, but I do have Mavis Discount Tire chain stores, pretty much the same type of place.
    We have four cars in the family and I've taken all of them there with ~zero~ problems. When they didn't have the tire I needed in stock, they made a call and it was delivered to them in 30 minutes.

    Once and Always, if you're not getting the service you deserve from your shop, go somewhere else where they'll appreciate your money!
