Screw you, hippie!

So anyway, I got a couple of new tyres for my car. The guy that inspected my car had this whole attitude going on, like he wanted to fix my entire car.

[as we approach my car to inspect it]
Me: "I just want two new tyres on the front."
Him: "Yeah well what you need is four new tyres. What's the spare like?"
Me: "The spare is rusted in. I just want two new front tyres on the front."
(note: the spare isn't literally rusted in. Just the holding bolt. I had a wheel in the back with a tyre on it, that I had just bought from a wreckers sitting in the boot. The schmoe must have thought I'd been using that as a spare.)
Him: *grunt*

[later back in the shop]
Him: "It'll cost you $75 for two."
Me: "Okay, here's the keys."

[45 minutes later]
Receptionist: "Your car is done. There was a puncture in the spare, which is an extra $22"
Me: (under my breath) "What the fuck!?!"

So anyway, the fuckwit fixed my spare even though all I wanted was two new tyres. I was going to put a new tyre on the spare, but now there's not much point since the one that is on there is fixed. Also the new tyres were cheap-ass no-name, I guess thats what I get for not telling the fool specifically what I wanted.

After having a look at my policy document, it turns out I should be able to get a free windscreen out of my comprehensive car insurance. Which is good, because there are a number of huge cracks all over it now.

If I can't get that I'll have to try and get it repaired. *sigh*

Thanks for all the menu suggestions. I've taken most of them on board, If anyone's interested I'll put it up in a week or two when I get all the details sorted out.

Yeah, there'll be at least one "take out" day. IE, macca's, kfc, rr, pizza etc.
