I’ve been meaning to get the oil changed in our car for the past few months and finally got around to it today. I’m always nervous to do stuff like that, especially without Philip there, just cause I waltz in there with my white winter coat, blue plaid scarf slung around my neck, and pointy toed stilletos, basically asking for those mechanics to rip me, the stereotypical no-car-knowlege girl, off. I’m their weekly commission, waiting to happen.
Philip always sends me off with these words of wisdom: “Do not let them convince you to buy ANYTHING that you didn’t plan on buying.”
So in I go, just needing an oil change and a checkup. And I walk out with a new air filter, a new radiator hose, a new radiator cap, and a tire rotation. WHAT?
It was just at TAD bit more than the $18.90 I planned on spending for the oil change.
But hey, I did bat my eyelashes a bit and get my tire rotation for free. That should count for something…right?
Anyone else getting conned into spending money they didn’t plan to spend for their pre-winter checkup?
