Good Morning Groanies,
On Monday morning, I had to take my car to get repaired.
The car need quite a bit of work done. It needed an oil change, tire rotation, fluid check, a recall corrected, and replacing the broken CD player.
Now, I like to plan ahead so I called the week prior to make an appointment to see just how long this work would take to complete. They told me on the phone that it would be half a days work and they'd have it ready by lunch (and they did).
But, when I dropped off the car they asked me when I'd like the car back. Wait, what?! They told me a week ago that it would be ready by lunch. "When do you want it back?" Oh, I don't know. Maybe a day. A week. A month. Thirty seconds from the time of drop-off. Are you kidding me? Just fix it and call me when it's done!
That's like a plumber coming to your house to fix your toilet and asking when you'd like to poop next.
Maybe it's me, but I thought it was weird. Weird like a baby wearing a monocle. So weird.
