So I say: you want to charge me 521 to lift the car up look underneath it with a lead lamp and change the oil and brake fluid.
To her credit she kept her cool and said I can offer you my own personal discount at 7%.
Obviously this didn't make a great deal of difference and it begs the question, why don't they do that in the first place?
So I say I will have to get back to her.
She says I can have a word with the manager to see if I can offer you a further discount.
I politely declined.
Your thoughts?
