ok..... this is mainly a venting..... but my god!!!!! Here we go, now, last week wasn't the best of weeks so this really topped it off in the making me want to kill someone category. Last week on Tuesday i book my bike in to Bill's on Frome road. i booked a service engine tune and a new set of tires. its my service since having the bike so i wanted a thorough one. now i drop the bike off on Friday morning at about 9:45am. Convo as follows Ray(service dude): hey mate ur here for the service? Dave(obviously me): yeah... and the tires and engine tune Ray: ....oh yeah.... ur bikes the last one in so it wont be finished till late this arvo. Dave: how late? Ray: hhhmmmmm about 5. Dave: ok see ya then. now i decide i may as well go home instead of staying in the city, have a nap u know basically kill as much time as i can before going back in. i then decide to get to town about 345 to have some late arvo lunch with my mate who working at Myers. it all goes well, we finish about 430 then i figure its a good time to start walking to bill's. first i go to the bathroom, my phone rings, i figure i let it ring out cos im a lil busy taking care of business. then the old missed call message comes. Now as i was only involved in settling a number 1 this all happened in the space of 5 min. as i start walking back to bills i return the missed call, figuring it was bills telling me my baby was ready to go. Ray: hello bills M..etc Dave: hi this is david speaking i received a miss call from you? Ray: oh yeah, when did u get the message? because i was trying to call u a while ago. ummm there has been a bit of a problem, we wont have ur bike ready by today. Dave: why not? Ray: um...well....u see your this morning i only received your front tire not ur back tire as well, when i called the distributor they said they were "out of stock" so i had to order the Bridgestone equivalents at about 10 this morning. Dave:....(in my head: fcuking hell!!!! i shouldn't have done those burnouts last night as a goodbye to the old tires! (its a tradition with my friends and i the night before new tires...bye bye old tires))... ok.... so the problem is? Ray: they haven't come yet. Dave: damn, ok then can i just pick up my bike and get the tires next week? Ray: um....well...u see the service isn't done yet. Dave: oh ok, look you close at 5:30, so i'll get there about 5:10 (taking my time) will it all be finished by then? Ray: um...well yeah it might. end of phone convo ok so i walk there, when i get there i was standing at the counter for a bout 15 min twiddling my thumbs as ray was talking to some guy about motor cross racing, then after that convo he plays with his computer, then goes takes a phone call, then goes plays with some book then comes and talks to me. apparently the service wont be done in time, i get some story and he tells me to come back tomorrow. now because i want my tires i suggest i come back Monday to get the whole thing, he's like yeah thats fine sorry about all this. no bike for weekend : ( ruined plans with my girlfriend that night, she was pissed. today, being monday, i sleep in till about 12, ring bills about 1230. Ray: hi david Dave: hey... please tell me my bike is ready. Ray: um well the thing is... ur tires were lost in transit. Dave: eh? what do u mean? Ray: i rang the guys before and they are trying to find the tires, it should be organised by about 230. Dave: look i need that bike for work tonight so im coming in and getting it at 3-30 the latest. Ray: yeah yeah that should be fine... i mean look its when we want things the most that these things happen eh. Dave:................ Ray: hey? Dave: call me at about 2:30 and tell me whats goin on, seeya Ray: yeah, bye. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: this has been so frustrating, sorry for the ridiculously long post guys. but im quite annoyed, especially as i don't believe a word of what he said. i reckon they completely forgot about the tires on Friday and when i dropped it off and told him he ordered them then and told the boys to leave mine till as late as possible, when i went in there that arvo he showed me the bike to assist his stroy, it was in pieces, there was no way in hell it was gonna be done by friday arvo. i hate the bs ing around the most!
