How to loose business!
Had the mrs car in for a mot today at a local garage, and while i was there i thought i would enquire about a pre mot check as i've had my spider for six months now and even though the mots not due till june i thought i would save myself any nasty shocks (plus six months to do any work etc)
i spoke to the manager and he said quit smug "o you want one of our free heath checks" I didnt even know it was free as i expected to pay something but i though even better if it free!
then the manager asked what car it was?
i replied "alfa romeo 1996 spider"
he laught "alfa romeo! has it broke down yet?"
i said, "no its been great" (the truth)
manager "well im sure it will! we get lots in, regular customers! when do you want to book it in?" snigger
"really! well if you getting lots of regular alfa customers you must not be fixing them properly! i will leave it thanks!
the car failed the mot n would only cost £120 to get it passed, but i took the car and explain i would have the work done somewhere else!
do alfa really have this bad a reputation or was i right, he was a **** ****!
