I am Beautiful.
I am Confident.
I am the Perfect age, the Perfect size, the Perfect Woman.

I just found out the rumors are true... one of the MOST difficult people I have ever worked with is leaving. His knowledge is invaluable but his delivery method needs work. Good-Bye as you go work with another difficult person Mr. Maytag.

So yesterday I got my alignment done. The first thing he says to me " Your tires are 14 years old and dry rotting. You need new tires." Hmmmm, my first question would have been, how have you managed to keep tires for 14 years? He goes and quotes me $650.00 and I can "Lease" them.... NOPE, thanks though. I do need to replace them as the right rear tire belts have started slipping but right now I can go over 70 mph with no severe shimmy so that's an improvement. I did find the tries I want at Walmart for 318.00 installed.

Its raining today. We sure need it. Virginia is in a drought and its the start of Wildfire season. I hate to see the Blue Ridge mountains burning.

SO I am trying to make a payment on my hospital bill. I tell them $100.00 and she charges me $500! She says it wont go through until tomorrow and guess what.. $500.00 has been removed from my bank account. That's the second time I've had trouble with these people. I am so frustrated. Now I better go... before I start crying....

    Although your mechanic didn't ask, I am going to ask "...how have you managed to keep tires for 14 years?"
    While you've done a great job, they are dangerous! You must have them replaced! ASAP! No excuses!! Whether or not money is tight - you cannot afford the risk of injury to yourself or others if a tire blows out. Please, please, replace the set.

    Your hospital sounds like my doctor's office when it comes to payments. I paid with a credit card, they couldn't handle it and charged me too much, and it took months to get my money back. Now I use online bill pay through my bank which costs nothing and prevents them from "taking" what they want. They now get a check in the mail.

    Sending you good thoughts for clear skies ahead!

    emoticon Oh dear! I'd be on the phone with the bank and let the hospital figure out why they aren't getting the amount they "stole".

    Too bad you had to pay for the alignment first. Usually they do that at installation.

    Sometimes It is tough when things do not go right. I feel that you need to get the tires ASAP as that is a long time for a tire on a vehicle. You never know when it is going to leave you on the road or possibly blowout when you are drivng 70
