    Angry Why life sucks

    Friday i took my car to a mechanic right down the road. He did an inspection that he didnt even complete and charged me $25. I also asked him to replace a wheel bearing, but he wanted $400 for ONE wheel bearing. So i didnt let him do it. Go to get my car, what do you know, Damn thing dont start. Walk inside said "You wanna start my car?" in 2 seconds a different mechanic walks out and jumps me without me telling him whats wrong. Keep in mind that it was working 100% before i got it from him. Odd dont you think? So now i have a dead battery. Wait Wait this is the best part. My fkin hood latch wont release. so now i have a nice new(to me) audi that is collecting dust in my drive way till my mechanic makes an house call. So since im a proper young man, im calling DMV. and explains how he way over charges and does half-ass inspections. I replaced the bearing for $200 from a mechanic 10 minutes away from me.

    It's hard to find a good mechanic in this country as well but they are about if ya look hard enough, feel for ya man as I get customers come to me all the time with horror stories. If you can do it your self then give it ago bud, at the end of the day it's only nuts and bolts.

    Nice to hear it's not just Britain that suffers with shonky mechanics. Not so nice you're having grief though
