Truck repair and miscommunication. I bid $500, they called back to offer $1300, I said no FUCKING way, just do the brakes and the 15k service as I asked.

So I arrived to collect the truck to a bill of $875. Can't do it, I said. So they're taking out the brake work and I can pick it up tomorrow. Meanwhile, I'm crashing at my manager's apartment, and Sable gets to spend another night at the vet's.

I'll be biting my nails all the way to Oregon & back. It'll be fine.

You always have the option of crashing here as well. One futon, no waiting.

I'm not sure i want to know what it means to "take out the brake work...".

Replacing the new parts with the parts they removed. This burns double labor time on their part (once in, once out), but I told them when I arrived that I wanted the brakes done, so I understood that job to be included in the initial estimate.

Blah. I'm still annoyed. I should go to sleep and wait for my obligatory 3am on-call call, though.
