Oh wait. Did I not write about what happened LAST Saturday?
So remember how I blew a tire right before Christmas? Well, my dad offered to get me a new one as a Christmas present. I was to take the car in, get a new tire put on, and use the oldest tire as a spare. Oh and get my tires rotated. Easy, right?
Well rewind to last Saturday. We take the car to Tires Plus and then ran a few errands; they said it’d be about an hour. So we come back and the guy tells us to come out to the garage with him. He then shows us that my two front tires need to be replaced too as well as fixing the alignment. The alignment was completely off in front, totally wrecking my fairly new front tires. AND he wanted to do a fluid frush.
Well, needless to say I’m seeing zillions of dollar signs flash in front of my eyes. I call dad to tell him what’s up. Well, he was cool about it, paid for it all.
In the middle of this the guy tells me my front brakes should be done too. We ask for a quote and JUST FOR the brakes it’s over $500! WHAT! All the other stuff he did – the 3 new tires, fixing the front alignment and fluid flush were less than that! Definitely not.
Which is why we bought the stuff we needed YESTERDAY for less than $90 and Dustin’s going to do my brakes. $90 sounds WAY better than $500, right? I thought so too.
Anyway, I am off to rinse out this hair dye. Don’t forget to enter the Why Girls Are Weird giveaway, it ends TONIGHT!
