Tire repair Boo Boo

I had a flat (slow leak with a bolt in it) fix on a rainy day and was really happy it was done for only $10. I paid cash. (inside the tire plug/patch) The problem is that while it was done, the tech damaged my rim on the face where the hydraulics pressed down on the tire and rim. I didn't notice it while it was done because all the wet brake dust and grime camoflaged the wheel finish. Now, I called them, and of course they deny everything. What should I do? The damage is going to be more than $10 bucks.

I guess I'll have to live with it and eat any repair costs. I may go the DIY route, 'cause I'm sure there will be more cosmetic problems on my wheels that I can fix in the future. Maybe I'll give it to my women and she can bitch and nag the guy to submission??
