fif update 2

Me: I’m ringing because the repair that you did to my tyre has failed.

Them: You can do a pit stop, but you’ll probably have to wait because it’s first come, first served.

Me: YOUR repair failed and I have to wait. How long?

Them: It’s approximately 10 minutes per car and then the time to fix whatever is wrong so it depends on how many cars are in front of you.

Me: I’m sick as a dog, YOUR repair failed and I have to wait around for who knows how long coughing and spluttering??

Them: You could take it somewhere else to get repaired.

Me: YOUR REPAIR FAILED! I’m not spending money somewhere else. I want YOU to fix what I’ve already spent money on.

Them: Well, you’ll have to come in and wait then.

Me: *mutterfuckersmutter*

My day keeps on getting better and better.

    Sounds like you're having the day from hell. I thought it was only me.

    I hate having to deal with car mechanics. Bunch of meanies!!

    Feel better soon!!

    I hate having to deal with car stuff. Mechanics are often such smug bastards cos they know they've got you over a barrel.

    Poor you (again) 😦

    Poor Sissy…

    Are you better now that you have spent some money(AND spent quality time with your lovely wonderful Mumma)AND been to the spa?

    LYL 🙂

    PS… don't forget to tell Sean about Ikea!

  4. Kris says:

    Lily & Jen: Car people are all pooheads! Thanks for your thoughts.

    Mumma: I have spent $$ on random shit, eated cake with you and have blue toenails. Life would be good if only I could friggin' breathe!!!!

    Dammit, I keep forgetting.

    Hey Sean, if you're reading this, Ikea has red bookcases in stock.

    Happy now, Mumma. 🙂

  5. Tam says:

    I swear there is no service standards anymore. Mojo there is no one in line and they take 10 min. to fix it.

    Yay, red bookcases. 🙂

  6. Kassa says:

    Sorry to hear about your recent illness and problems. I am impressed with your ability to find the perfect lolcat for every single need. You have some skill there.

    Ps. your mom sounds awesome.

    get well soon!

  7. Tracy says:

    Did you call them fucktards and then slam the phone down? No? Well, I can't say I would have either but I would have wanted to!

    Sorry you're having a hard time with the car people. The suck.

    You have blue toenails? Wow, very cool.

  8. AWWW my Kris is sick and has to put up with this bullshit? I would take my tire and ram it up his ass.

    Well, maybe not, because I am everything sweet and pure.

  9. jitterbug says:

    The gall of some people!… I'm more and more thankful that engines are my dad's hobby. 🙂

    Hoping you're feeling better, or that you'll feel better soon. (blue toenails are very cool 😉

    (on a side note totally unrelated to your post, Almost like being in love will arrive very soon, probably tomorrow – it's Friday evening for me now. When I bought it I ordered also Perry Moore's Hero, which I saw you pimp many times, and I was able to put my hands on it yesterday. Guess what? I loved it! I couldn't put it down. I didn't expect to love it so much when I decided to add it to my basket. Thom and Hal's relationship was very, very touching.)

  10. Kris says:

    Tam: I was there for an hour, but I took a book and coughed a lot. I hope they felt guilty.

    Kassa: I have lol cats skillz. This is true. 😉

    Thanks for your wishes. And, yep, my Mumma is one of the awesomest Mummas in the entire universe… and that's not just cos I'm hoping she will tell the Daddy or the Bearded Baby Brother that I want the entire set of John Marsden's Tomorrow series for my b'day.

    Tracy: It was tempting let me tell you, but, no, I didn't. Mainly because I wanted my car not to come down with another mysterious illness.

    My blue toenails are awesome. *beams*

  11. Kris says:

    KBC: “Well, maybe not, because I am everything sweet and pure.”

    Sara: I think blue toenails have healing powers. Either that or the antibiotics have finally kicked in because I do feel better than I have in a long time this morning.

    Yay, that you loved “Hero”!!! I'm soo glad. The father and son relationship in this book was absolutely beautiful. I cried my eyes out at in a number of places towards the end, which is not something I do very often at all.

    I hope you like “Almost Like Being In Love” just as much. I read another of Steve Kluger's books – “My Most Excellent Year” – this morning. It too was terrific. I can't wait to read “Last Days of Summer”, which is winging it's way to me from The Book Depository as we speak. 🙂

    Firstly, I hope you're feeling better soon!

    Second – why is it that companies nowadays forget the two most important words: customer service! I hope you got things fixed and then told them you were never coming back!

  13. Kris says:

    Aww, thanks, hun, and hugs right back atchya!

    The days of 'the customer is always right' are only in my head, Orannia. It is a very sad state of affairs. 😦
