being a cheap bastard, maintenance for me sucks. i find great pleasure in shining and maintaining my shoes and ironing my shirts. now, i have a really rough time at the cleaners. Ive managed to have cleaners lose some very nive stuff, only to tell me that im a liar when i tell them how much it will cost to replace a shirt. Theres a new place that opened near my house that seemed very nice. I spoke to the owner when i took my isaia suit in, told her my concerns, and asked if they could put the maker of my suit on the receipts in the event they were lost. When i came back to pick it up, they gave me a stack of clothes and i paid and left. When i got home, i realized they gave me my suit, my wife's clothes, and someone elses 2 shirts and 2 trous. Luckily im honest enough to take them back and not keep them. But i have a very sour taste in my mouth (queue the jokes) for dry cleaners. I wish i could just open one myself for only my own clothes.
