    Local Chain has changed hands 3 times in 4 years
    new guy is very political always going to town meetings and such
    complaining that his city is taking business out of city we are 3.5 miles
    out of city limits
    So Local pd that we have done cars for last 12 years Chief
    tells Car Pool Guy to let them bid.
    They want my files to recreate and no problem NOT Happening
    Then finally they bid on cleaning old lettering off of 4 cars
    that are going to be retired so cut my price which is way to
    cheap but since we do their cars we give them a break
    So officer goes to pick up the cars and all the glue is still on the
    cars he states I thought you were finished Owner precedes to explain
    glue removal is more just let me run the numbers and i can get you
    a price on that
    so he quotes 100.00 to clean the cars now wants 195.00 to remove
    glue
    I am NOt the smartest of guys or would not be in this carzy cut throat business
    but really
    if large chains train like this
    no worries when they come to town they wont last long
    maybe not so strange but this just topped the cake for
    me.
    Don't have time to post hardly ever but i just needed to vent thanks
    enjoy the site for the most part
    Like life and advise got to take with a grain of salt

    Glad everyone can help you remember. Now in your free time not hanging around here typing garbage. Go hire an english tutor. I see your in Tennessee so maybe you should head south to Georgia to find someone that knows English first.

    As a customer that would infuriate me!! Don’t think you will need to worry about that company for long.

    I had no problem reading it.... especailly compared to some of posts written by the smart alecs responding.

    That's like going to the diner, ordering 2 eggs, bacon, toast and some home fries and some coffee for $2.99. The waitress brings it out and there's two brown eggs, 3 slabs of bacon, bread and a potato with a cup full of coffee grounds and says, that'll be $2.99. Whadafug ??

    Oh-h-h-h-h........... you want us to cook it ?? That'll be another $4.35 plus tip.

    Then the fight began...................

    don't be a baby, just write in a way that isn't painful to wade thru. from what I can gleam from what you wrote, it sounds like some chain, I assume a sign chain of some sort under bid (?) or pushed for the town to give him the bid as he is in town and you are 3 miles or so out of town. then he left all the mess behind and then tried to add to the bid the cost to remove the glue? from what I think I got from your post, this company is pretty shady in it's dealings.

    the famed hidden fees ploy, lets see if they get any passes on moving violations in the city.

    seriously he was *****ing about 3.5 miles as not part of the city? its 11 miles one way to get my closest grocery store.
