My bestest buddy Dave, brought his Jeep Scrambler to a mechanics garage in order to have him put on disc brakes on the rear (easy job but my buddy had no time to do it himself). He gave the guy $500.00 to get it done before the work was started. The Jeep had to be ramped to the shop because it was not regestered... another ($75.00). He has been to the shop at least four times since to get the guy moving and he keeps hearing "Sorry, I'll definately get it done by Monday" and he falls for it every time. Now here's the kicker... the Jeep was supposed to be done JULY 4th weekend! Now the guy wants him to take it back (nothing done yet) and not give back the $500.00! It's been there over seven months. Here's the last e-mail from my buddy:
I had a discussion with Al today about my jeep.He says he dosen’t have my money,to get my jeep out of there today,and that he hasn’t got any idea when he will have my money.He was upset at me!!!
He told me he’s not in the mood to talk about it and hung up on me.
I’m going to suprise him tomorrow by leaving work early and pop in on him.I plan on having a small tape recorder on me.I think I might need yoor help on this one depending how things go tomorrow. (if I’m found dead somewhere you know who killed me)David
Beside me slapping the guy around, what can we do? I’m not sure that he’s got a reciept for the $500.00 but I think he does.
