    Yes, that may be absolutely true, but time for us men to turn the tables on you women and use your logic against you, and I quote: "Yes dear, but I saved us money"

    Careful there, the savings went to beer. (Not a BAD thing, by any means ---)

    Back when I drank that was a pretty accurate description of the job. No kid at Jiffy Lube was touching my car when I could screw it up myself!

    Now Jiffy Lube keeps an eye out for me - last time I went there the waiting room is packed and I'm stuck standing there waiting for someone to fill out the info thing so I can leave. I'm disabled with bad feet and after 10 minutes of standing there I was pretty pissed off so I went back out to my truck, told them the problem (they could care less) and that they were a bunch of idiots and peeled out of there. Might have said a few bad words too. :p Screw Jiffy Lube!
