I had a state inspection done at Pep boys today in Dundalk.  They said I needed 4 new tires and an alignment.  I told them I'd go to Costco and get the tires and come back tomorrow for the inspection.  I decided on my way to go to a discount tire place and got it all done then for $550 instead of $700 at Costco. I went back to Pep Boys to get the inspection signed off at  and they said I had to come back between 8 and 4.  I said why cant I just get you to sign off, they said they would have to check the alignment.

I said why? The alignment was done at the tire place, it says it right here.  Then he said why didn't you just get the tires from here I could have matched any price and gotten you 5% off.  He said I thought you were going to Costco. I said I decided I didn't have time and why didn't you just quote me that price in the first place?  And now, because I didn't get the tires from you, you are making me come back in the morning to sign this off?  This guy was a complete chauvinistic jerk. 

I said can I just get an appointment for 8am tomorrow?  They stared at me and said yes.  No sorry, no thanks, no nothing. Are you not a customer service place?  Do you treat all your customers like this? I left upset.

Your workers have such a bias towards women.  Would he be talking to my husband like this?  No, because he would be physically intimidated by my husband and I pose no threat.  I'm tired of being treated like a second hand citizen going into your auto stores.  I want to be treated with respect instead of being talked down to by a mechanic. 

I want to know what is going to be done about this.  This is the year 2013, women are allowed to vote, we're allowed to have a say in things, and we are allowed to be treated with respect by mechanics.  A $60 inspection shouldn't leave me this upset.

Then, I come back the second day to get this thing done, and the same guy who did my inspection calls out sick.  Of course he does.  And the other inspector can't check the other guys work, so now I have to come back a third day to deal with these guys who hate women.  I've written corporate but no response yet.  I don't expect someone who employs people like this to respond to a woman.

You sound exactly like someone who hates women as well.  And yes, if you were there you would have gotten the vibe that was given off.  So sorry to have disturbed you with my story.  I should just bow down before the superior sex.  Get out of your mom's basement and maybe you'll get a girlfriend.  A**hole.

 It really sounds like youre the sexist. So someone calls out sick and its a personal attack against you because youre a woman. Did you ever think that they may have been sick?? No of course you wouldnt. Youre a female and as such you read YOUR biases into any situation. Between 8 and 4 sounds like they have to submit this information to a state agency. As such that is probably the only timeframe they get. But then again THEY are males, so they must be out to rip you off.

They told you what your issues were and you decided to just use them for the inspection. Im also betting that when they told you that you needed new tires and a alignment that you werent the nicest person. You get what you give in this world. They DID NOT rip you off. They DID NOT scam you. This is just a revenge post because it sounds like they didnt treat you like the princess you act like.

Until they actually do any work on your vehicle, you cannot expect them to just do what YOU want. If they told you that they have to do the inspections between certain hours, then thats the way it is and no amount of pouting or crying or hoisting your b***s is going to change that. I suspect your one of those high maintence drama queens that demands the world conform to them. It doesnt work that way.

You really show your humanity and empathy when you accuse a individual of calling out sick because of your situation. If they are sick, who the hell are you to bash them for being human?? In our economy calling out sick means that the worker loses money that they need to support themselves and thier family. Just be lucky you didnt actually encounter TRUE sexism. Because I can tell you, women get to vote, women get to drive means nothing to a TRUE sexist. They would have just thrown you out of thier shop for both your attitude and demands.

So get over yourself princess and try and act a little more human. Because you get what you give in this life. You might want to examine your own issues before you blast someone for being sick. But I doubt that will happen...you are a woman after all......and its never YOUR fault its always someone else.
