I get up early to take my car in to have the A/C repaired, the part finally came in. I am about to get into the car when I notice a nail sticking out of the tire. I proceed to a large national tire chain to have the tire repaired. They scratch the rim. They want to argue about it but then offer to refinish it. I explain that I find that an unacceptable option and request a new rim. I am told that they will do that. I then proceed to the dealership. They are out of loaners, so I had to wait to be taken to a rental car shop. The dealership has been very nice and I appreciate the efforts they have gone to, I only mention this because the whole process makes me four hours late to work.
When I arrive at work I contact the tire store, they say they will fix the situation but now are very sketchy about details. How frustrating. Thanks, I needed to vent. On the bright side, things could be far worse.
