I'll Do That Every Time

(1) Head lamp, (2) Head lamp installation, and (3) they washed my filthy car. "Shop James Wood's - Decatur and Denton."

What is the MISC Charge of $3.24 ?

Did you have to by them lunch or did they charge you for the shop towel?

I have always said that if the dealerships would charge normal prices for the work done to your auto's that more people would use them.

$53.53 to change a headlight is ridicules. But then again. I am a poor working man.

Wait until BG finds out that this bill was just for the carwash.

They knew you were blogging about your headlight and didn't want the bad press like Sweetie Pies.

I would have done it for $52.49 with a car wash too.

I think you got a great deal. I would pay $30 anyday to have someone else do it right and get my car wash. That was a great decision on your part.

153.53 would be more like it

I bet Britney Spears could have changed it by herself.

The 3.24 is for shop supplies, every customer is charged even if none are used.

Companion?

Can't change a headlight?

Obsessing about your body image?

Time to give it up and turn in your Man Card esse'.

I had some repair work done once and when I asked how much the bill was, the guy said you better grab your ankles.

LAZY! U could have went to AutoZone for cheaper than that. They probably would have even installed for less minus the carwash. But BG can't get his court dud's dirty. Guess that is why when you make the big bucks you don't care what it cost.

TOTAL PARTS..... 5.68
TOTAL MISC...... 3.00
TOTAL TAX....... .58

TOTAL INVOICE $ 9.26

THEY CHANGE THE BULB AND SEND YOU DOWN TO THE CAR WASH.

The last time I replace a headlight I paid less than $5 for it at the auto parts store. Took me ten minutes to change it out. I guess $53 is typical nowdays. A hard rain is going to fall. What is Decatur going to look like without a car dealership.

I drive a '03 trailblazer, and passenger low beam went out .... bulb from AutoZone $10, three screws on aircleaner cover, and one bracket bolt (two wrenches total), and approx. 30 minutes in the beautiful fresh air ... and WOW it works!! Oh, and I'm a female:)

Let's see, if you chose to do it yourself:

1) You might learn something

2) You might get some exercise that blogging doesn't provide

3) You might have something more interesting to post than a repair bill

4) You might accidentally drive a screwdriver through the palm of your hand. (see #3)

5)You might save the world from global warming. (or not)

6) You might put to rest the rumors of your hermersecksiality

7) You might get laid by the neighbor's wife who also needs a headlamp replaced and is married to a fat-assed redneck.

8) You might not have time to post this absurd comment

The day I have someone change a headlight or oil for me is the day I'm castrated.

Does your husband also not change his own headlights?

zac said...

so you paid twice as much as the services were worth... not bad from a dealer, good job!

I'll bet you could have found a hooker on Harry Hines to do it for you for $53.53. That price would probably include a "happy ending."

I would be ashamed if I were so sissiefied that I couldn't even change a headlight.

What a wussie!

Unless both of my arms were broken my daddy would whoop me for paying to have a headlamp replaced.
