officially annoyed...(shop rant)

okay, this dude drops over his fairings on this past friday, i tell him i'm extremely overworked, and it would take a minimum of 1 week and up to 2 weeks to complete.

he's got more damages than he showed me, and i did him a favor by repairing some just because i'm a nice guy like that

he calls 3 days later this past monday and asks if it's finished? wtf? i tell him he just dropped it off on friday....he calls wed, is it done yet? and now he calls today thinking it's gonna be finished and wants to come check out the progress.....i tell him come on by. and if he gives me any when he gets here, guess what.....take your somewhere else.

seriously people....i give people BADASS prices, and this is what i get in return. i do WAY more than what i'm paid to do in most cases. i've known plenty of body shops that keep people's stuff for months on end and do jobs when they are done. i'm a fair guy.....but i don't like being harassed. a guy can only take so much. painting is not an overnight thing....especially when there is extensive repairs. people complain about squids making their insurance prices go up....people like this will start making my paint prices go up! and i dont wanna do that....i like keeping people happy....but some people can't be pleased. btw, it's not someone from the forums.

okay, have a good day people, obviously i'm not having one.

That's why I got out of the repair business.. everyone seems to want something for nothing, yesterday!

Or the ones that you quote a job on for say $500.. and they say what could you do for $100?

I think it goes hand in hand with the ol' dumbing down of society...

dude, that sucks. These are the asshats that complain no matter what. They are never satisfied.

They should be made to wear a sign so you can send them away without even having to deal with them in the first place.

I KNOW THE GUY YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT!!

He's the same total and complete dumbass that I dealt with today! Except when I saw him he had a toy gun in his hand, was walking by the elementary school, and couldn't understand "What the pralem bee" when a t-load of po-po came down on him...

They're everywhere Tony, be careful!
