Rims,Tires, Valve Stems, Oh My!

I apologize if this offends someone. If any readers' brothers' girlfriends' moms' friends' son works at Tires Plus, again I'm sorry..But here is the thing...

About a month ago, my tire had a boo-boo, of which I thought a simple patch would fix. However, this was most certainly not the case. Instead, I was there for about an hour and a half, while a new, $100 tire was placed on my car.

Okay fine, put the damn tire on, and send me on my way....

Well, apparently if you have aluminum rims after about 60 miles you need to get the lug nuts tightened...(so i guess your wheel doesn't fall off?!) Okay fine, I'll come back and get them tightened...

Well, for about the last month (after my FIRST Tires Plus visit), my tire kept going flat..


I mean, really?

Okay fine, so I have to go back to Tires Plus...F...

So here's the thing, I stopped in, made an appointment, and then later arrived at my appointment time...actually 5 minutes before my appointment time.

I waited....15 minutes....30 car was in the same spot that I parked it in, it never moved...45 minutes...the nauseating smell of tires filling my nose....1 hour....they finally moved my car...1 hour 15 minutes.....I was pacing in the waiting area..( a waiting area filled with tires, hard metal chairs, 10 waiting people, a water fountain, a 25 cent candy machine (damn it, I have no quarters), and a TV you cannot even see from the ridiculous chairs....1 hour 20 minutes...I finally approach the counter, trying to remain calm, and hold back the steam shooting from my ears," Do you know where you are at with the blue Nissan?" "2 minutes," the worker replies..Okay fine, I'm okay with 2 more minutes....

1 hour 25 minutes....I approach the counter again, "Is the blue Nissan done yet?" "2 minutes," the worker replies...Are you kidding me? Is this the only time frame you know dude?!? The last thing I want to do on my day off is spend time pacing your raunchy waiting area!!!!!!

1 hour 30 minutes....the worker tells me that he ordered a new sensor for my valve stem....Are you kidding me? I have to come back here? F..

And the best stupid aluminum rims...after 60 miles...well you know...Are you kidding me?!?!

When this stupid sensor comes in, I'm dropping my car off at 7:30 am, so that hopefully by 4:15 may be close to done.
