Made a appointment for new Tires and a alignment
Since I've changed out my whole front suspension.
Car is on lift and tires are off
They come and say they don't have the tires they told me yesterday
They had in stock so now I have to choose a crap tire they have available
Then as I'm watching,the tech is draining my oil !
I go to the counter and ask if a oil change is included with a alignment
Since I never asked for one?
They ended up giving me a free oil change
I told them the wheel covers are on the back seat and to throw them on when done
nope still sitting on the back seat when I went to the car
I didn't bother to say a thing since
At that point I knew I would never go back to that place in my lifetime.

I miss the small shops I grew up with down in Texas. I always went to the same small old shop that also did semi tires and other things. They were the guys that did tires, and then a couple miles down the road was the alignment and lube shop where for $100 you got the alignment. All these guys worked hard and were hungry, but they never lied to you or inflated the service needed. The last alignment I did before I left Texas, I showed up with all the parts, and all they needed to do was install tie rod ends and align on fresh tires. The trick was, I got in right before lunch, and left 6 tallboys for the guys on the front seat for lunch. It was something I saw my Dad do often, and damn if it didn't make the work happen a little quicker with certain people.
