1) So I had sent in my car to get repaired. It was making a noise from the butt-end. The dealer of said car says that it is a wheel problem, and you need to go to the tire/wheel dealer. Well I get there, and you guess what they said. That's the assembly, not the tires/wheels and you need to go to the dealership of said car to get it fixed. What a total scam. So I get that fixed. No more then a week later the problem starts again. They try to charge me double, I won't have it. Then they try to hook me into getting new brakes, I say no, I'll wait, thanks very much. :EEP BREATHS:: ::SERENITY NOW:: 2) A certain manufacturer of a certain instrument that I had been absolutely jumping with glee to get as soon as i could completely fell through on their end of the deal. I'm moving away for school for three months right after christmas. Said instrument was supposed to be delievered well before Christmas, as a 2 week wait was promised at the point in time known as "Thanksgiving." I am being very patient through this. Well I give a call, and they said that it would be delivered the past monday. Well. I sit home all day monday, and get nothing. Nothing, I wasted a day, congratulations. I call again. Some problem that doesn't need to be mentioned prevented the said instrument from even being shipped. My question. Why don't car dealers give straight answers, and how does something go from 'being delivered on monday' turn into 'we haven't even shipped it yet?' :scowl: Did I just get two really unlucky things happening at once, or is lying and scamming just the ways of the real world? Keep in mind this is coming from a penny-pinching 17 year old, with a part time job and not all the money in the world.
