Needless to say, I was livid.
I even emailed one of the local TV stations. They have this thing called Kake on Your Side so if you feel you've been slighted by a local business, they'll look into it and a derogatory story about that company could very well air. So far, I have received an email back saying that they'd look into it and see if they think it's newsworthy enough.
Oh - and my dad called and yelled at the manager. Yay dad!
Moral of the Story: Jiffy Lube is evil - don't give them your business.
Newsflash: Jiffy Lube is giving me a refund. My dad does some good yelling, I tell ya. :)
Two years ago I got four new tires for my car (okay, my dad put it on his credit card, but for the sake of simplicity, they will be referred to as "mine"). When we bought the tires the person at the store informed us that the tires needed were kind of rare, but they had some in stock. They put the tires on, and we also bought insurance, which would give me a new tire if one of them blew out, or whatever. Sure enough, because KU likes to let big pot-holes just get bigger, I hit a pot-hole that was roughly the size of the Grand Canyon (rainy weather hindered my ability to determine depth or if it even existed), and my tire blew out. I went back to the place with the receipt and all, and they told me that they never put those tires on my car. Those f***ing bastards had put tires on my car, but then wrote a different type of tire on the receipt. They couldn't honor the insurance, despite the fact that I knew one of the guys working there. My dad talked to the head guy and bitched him out big time, using cuss words that would probably make Satan himself gasp. We ended up getting a same size tire for like $80, but that place can eat crap. My dad also called everyone he knew and told them not to go to the place (it's called EnTire, used to be called Tires Plus). He almost called Stan Carmack with Call For Action to have them do a negative publicity thing on the company, but he didn't. I think dad is still making a quiet campaign against that store, and rightfully so.
(sorry for the length)
