In another phishing scheme... Nah, just kidding, I won't put you through that again. The annual Groundhog Day extravaganza has come to a close.
I got the BlueTruck back from Dr. Goodwrench. After an inflated estimate based on the amount of time it took to diagnose the broken switch in the first place (which he should be embarrassed about to start with, considering the number of people who correctly guessed that to be the cause without even seeing the truck), he then tried to charge me double that, because after installing the switch, the truck start blowing fuses, and further time was required to trace down a bad wire. I pointed out that it wasn't really reasonable to expect me to think that the fuses were blowing due to some pre-existing condition, since I had never once blown a fuse before this. I got him to agree that since it was obviously his grease monkey mis-wiring something that lead to the fuse dealie, that I wasn't going to pay for that part.
So I walk out having paid probably twice what the job was worth, feeling like I got a bargain. Dr. Goodwrench is no dummy.
