|04:00 pm - The weekend and stuff|
So anniversary not totally suck, I guess. Friday itself was horrible, but hoppie bought me a bucket of Kalamata olives (4th year anniversary present: fruits and flowers, check!), and a fruit basket. He said he would have gotten a bouquet, but all the ones he saw were sorta eh. I didn't get him anything, because I refused to leave the house.
On Sunday, I took his car to get his present. I got a Peace Lily plant, potted in a lovely purple (to echo wedding colours (not a perfect match, but close enough to be reminiscent) pot and a gift certificate to our local chain garden store (Mahoney's). I focused more on the "flower" element. It's good. I miss my peace lily.
I just got a call (and I'm still in the seething stage) from the Chrysler people and they had the replace the radio. But not to worry, it's covered under my warrantee, less my 100$ deductible. GRRRRRRr. I said, "Uh, shouldn't this be covered as part of the work you did last week?" She went to ask the service manager.
Just talked to her again. No, it's a different thing. The radio was broken and they had to replace it. I said, "You don't admit that you caused the problem? Cause it working when I brought the car in on Friday and it was not working when I left."
"Oh, I didn't know that. I wasn't the one who had your case on Friday."
OMGWTF! Didn't that guy write up what the appointment was for when he claimed on Friday, when I brought the car back, that he would make me an appointment to check the electrical system? DUDE! Computers! DO YOU USE THEM?
They're coming to pick me up and then I'll get to fight with the service manager myself. They were proposing that I pay the 100$ deductible and they'd talk to Chrysler and see if I could get reimbursed? What for? If they didn't cause the problem, they'd be no need to reimburse me. And if they did cause the problem, and they totally did, I shouldn't have to pay for it at all. UGH. So steamed.
Current Mood: irate
I hate them. Don't pay. Why should you wait fir a reimbursement. Let them get the reimbursement from Chrysler and you don't pay. Although if I went in there I know I would end up hysterical and using the "F" word, hopefully you will appear more reasonable than I would in the same situation...although sometimes the hysteria gets them to just let me go without paying because they want to get rid of me. The radio worked when you came into the place on Friday. It seems you have a clear cut solid case.
I'm getting all fired up about this and its not even my car. I want to go yell at them myself.
