Ok, so remember a few weeks ago when Abrahm was in that minor car accident and so I had to miss the council meeting? Well we took our car in and had it repaired. And then a few days later as Abrahm was driving down Coit the wheels comes completely off and flies across the intersection at Arapaho.
We towed it back to the shop, where they swore they WERE NOT the last ones to touch our car. (I know, I know, they were just trying to avoid any liability, I'm no dummy) So I asked the guy, 'if you were not the last ones to mess with the wheel, and I had taken it somewhere else, why would I be bringing it back to you, instead of taking it to them' to which he replied, 'I honestly don't know, that's what I'm trying to figure out, all I can tell you is someone has been messing with this tire and it was not us.' (uh-huh) I decided to take it one step further and ask him what exactly he was implying, and this is what he said 'look Destiny, I'm not even saying it was another shop, I know this may sound crazy, but I've heard of it happening before....are you sure there's nobody out there with a vendetta against you?'
(omgosh, GARY SLAGEL'S TRYING TO HAVE ME KILLED!)
'Umm, no, nobody that I can think of....'
I hung up furious about the fact that this shop is totally screwing me over, but did have to laugh at the thought of the Slag out in my drive way in the middle of the night with a ski mask on loosening my lug nuts....
And just so that you know, this story has a happy ending. Our car is now in very good and trustworthy hands. David Chenoweth, a frequent contributer to this blog is fixing it up over at North Haven Auto.
So Gary, just wanted to let you know that we're on to you buddy!
