Love this new post, Wren.
A few weeks ago I got an oil change at Walmart. They cracked the cap that goes above the oil filter and my car almost ran out of oil. Luckily my friend's H was able to fix it with a $14 part. However, I was without a car for 2 days.
I made up a mock invoice on how much parts and labor would've cost had I taken it in to a regular shop, which was about $233. I took my fake invoice into Walmart and complained about their service and told them my story. The store manager came back with a wad of cash. They gave me the $233 without asking any further questions!
Maybe I looked like the frazzled divorced lady and they were afraid to mess with me. Either way, I'm toasting my good fortune to a better 2010!
