My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)

GRRRRRR

I hate it when mechanics assume they can screw you over just because you're a woman.  I'm getting my car looked at before we leave tomorrow, and requested an oil change and an alignment.   Instead, they're wanting me to do about 400000 other things, at a total of $1400!!  Hell, it'd be cheaper to rent a car.    I'm so irked!    I called John to ask him what I should get done, and I'm only getting that taken care of, but now I have to add another errand to my list, which is going to Discount Tire to get new tires... they wanted to charge me almost $400 for new tires... I DO NOT THINK SO!!!    

Anyway, had to rant.... back to cleaning, packing and list writing! 

xoxox!!

Sorry girl! I know how frustrating it is; I've been there.

I would try Sam's Club for your tires though. I gave up on Discount tire a long, long LONG time ago.

Same brands, costs less, free rotations and they also have road hazard warranties.

$1,400! That is ridiculous! Ugh, I'm sorry.

But yay for vacation!

Yeah and that's exactly why my husband is in charge of all car-related things. I get so angry at mechanics!!
