Pep Boys Stole A Hour Of My Life

What is it with the service industry. You would think in these troubled economic times that companies would be culling their staff of slackers and people who don’t know how to do their job. You would think that people with jobs would pay a little bit more attention and work a little bit harder and NOT LESS.

I happened to have to take my car in for unknown ailments, ailments that Pep-Boys said would cost up to 1400 dollars, ailments like 2 new something’s for the axel and 2 new tires and an alignment and an oil change. Of course we don’t need all those things at that price and I went to go pick up the car so we could get a friend to do it for much cheaper.

I had my cousin drop me off because I was assured the car would be ready in the morning and it is already 2:00 p.m. The guy behind the counter was more interested in talking with his friends who had stopped to visit then with the line of customers. It took me 20 minutes to get my paperwork, take it to the counter to pay for it (it was a zero balance so not really sure why I needed the receipt to get my key) and then wait for the idiot stick figure with no soul to go and get my Jeep which he tried after another 15 minutes and me prodding him twice.

Then the battery was dead, then he tried to sell me a new one, then he tried to jump it only to find his jumpers not working, then he needed to charge the jumpers which he assured me would only be 15 minutes. 45 minutes later I still did not have my car, and I went crazy. After my fit I was able to get my car up. The only positive thing about the whole experience is that I got to watch some spin-off judge show of Judge Judy where a trashy slutty woman was trying to find out if the skezzy slime bag man was her baby’s daddy. The story was so unbelievable that there was no way someone had made it up and I was reminded of all the crazy people in the world. That show made me wait 15 minutes longer then my usual 30 min rule because I wanted to see if he was the baby-daddy. He was just in case you are wondering.
