Baby you can drive my car...
~ (The Beatles)
I lost a hubcap a while back and never did get around to going to the dealership to order a replacement. It’s a long way away, and out of the way, and would have taken a lot of time. I would have done it, eventually, in my own good time, which is sometime. I went to get gas one day at my regular service station and the guys noticed it was missing and offered to get me a new one. I jumped right on that, since it would save me both time and money. Several weeks passed with no phone call, which prompted me to stop by and ask about it. Oh! They’d forgotten to order it. They promised to do it right away and call me when it came in. Several more weeks passed; still nothing. Do you suppose they suspect I buy cheaper gas somewhere else when I don't need their full-service? Is this payback?
Then, two weeks ago when I stopped in for gas, they said they had the hubcap. Yesss!! They pulled my car into a bay, leaving me to wait around up front for about twenty minutes. And then the guy comes back and tells me -- no go. It was the wrong hubcap and it didn’t fit. They’d have to reorder it – and call me. I made another gas run last week and, though nobody had called me, they told me once again that they had it.
This guy jacks up my car with me in it (I HATE that!), does whatever he has to do, and puts the hubcap on. Then, next thing I know, he’s lowering me and the hubcap is – in his hand. It seems that they hadn’t sent the requisite washers with the hubcap and, yes, they’re going to have to order them. I’m now beginning to think in terms of “cluster-fuck” and thinking I’d have been smarter to have just taken the time to go to the dealership.
