Auto repair

Fixing the car… not things that fix themselves. 

I am at the stealership getting my state mandated inspection renewed.  I drove the car in here in good working order but I know im not leaving for just the inspection fee.

It’s like a reverse slot machine.  I pull the handle to find out how much they want me to pay.

And because the state enforces it, they feel free to gouge whatever they like. 

Update: I win. Only a license plate light. I have two but having one burned out is a failure. Cost to change: $16. I tried to shame the service written for telling me with a straight face the price and that I needed it. But working here as long as he has, his shame response has been seared out of him.

I think they are just punishing me for not having something more expensive like brakes to replace.

    You’re supposed to be ecstatic that you were only charged for the light.

    I always have a couple extra bulbs in a plastic bag in my trunk.
