They will be Mad...

Real Estate Agent with RETIRED 200305001

In my former career of Auto Body and Paint, I had a situation that was not going well and the deadline was today. The boss said " If you are late they will be mad, if it isn't right they will STAY MAD".

I took my laptop to a town 130 miles round trip for repairs last Thursday. They said "are busy we will get to it the beginning of the week". Tuesday afternoon I called, " Have not got to it yet". Thursday morning I call, "will be ready today"! 

I get there just before closing, "not quite done, need another day" "We want to know what you want us to do about  BLAH BLAH BLAH, IT WAS NOT PART OF THE DEAL AND NOT NEEDED.

Do you folks know how to use a %#@*& phone? It better be RIGHT next time I make the drive. Your thoughts?

How frustrating. Some people really do not understand customer service.

Judi: We have limit option in a 75 mile radius. They did do a better job in the end!

Dana: If they had been more accurate with the time frame I would have still left it for them.

Luckily my auto guy is a child hood friend of my son in law and he tries to get mine out fast as possible.
