Wasn't all in one trip. I did google zilli and saw jackets for radic prices, but didn't know if a tee was worth it

Too late, but if that had been me, I would have:
1. Asked to speak with the manager. After explaining the situation, I would have given them a chance to make it right, i.e., take the $65 electronically. What you were told is, I suspect, a total crock in this day and age--heck, you could've used Western Union (they still exist, incredibly). If the manager still said no, I would have, politely, told him that my next call was going to be to Nissan America (or whatever they call company HQ), and then the state attorney general's consumer protection division and then the media, in that order. I would also offer to pay an extra $10, bringing it up to $75, for his consideration.
2. If the manager did not make it right, at that point I would get angry, I would have done what you did and picked up the car myself, then I would have asked to speak with the manager in person.If the jurisdiction in question allows single-party consent, I would record that conversation, as well as the previous conversation I had with the manager.
3. I would file a complaint with the state AG. I would call the local newspaper. If you were able to make tape recordings, I would get in touch with Nissan America and email the recordings to the appropriate person. At this point, I would demand all of my money back, given that they forced you to make that drive. If they did not refund the money, I would post the recordngs, if you have them, on YouTube along with a description of exactly what they did.
4. When the repair was complete, and assuming it was way less than what the dealer quoted you, I would get in touch with the media (preferably a TV station---they love consumer protection pieces, and pitch them a story about the Nissan dealer who held your car hostage, complete with receipts and recordings (if you have them). Make sure that Nissan America (or whoever it is) knows that you are going to do this before you do it. They may be able to had things off at the pass.
The deal is, most folks, understandably, cave in situations like this because it involves persistence and takes a little time. But, once they understand they're dealing with someone who has a few brain cells and who is articulate and who explains the way this is going to work in a calm, cool tone, they very often will do the right thing because the potential consequences aren't worth it. You don't yell, you remain the epitome of business like and hope that they do the same.

what are you, a socialist? if the nissan dealership wants to charge $900 for a $200 job THAT'S THEIR RIGHT IN THIS COUNTRY. if they don't want to take payments over the phone and possibly lose business THAT'S THEIR RIGHT IN THIS COUNTRY. it's called capitalism. and guess what, IT'S YOUR RIGHT TO TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE NEXT TIME.

jeez, the amount of entitlement in this country is amazing. i don't like the price they quoted me, so THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO SAVE ME. i don't like their payment options SO THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO SAVE ME.

Jackets are ridiculous. Shirts, meh, but still nice. Made by the same guys that make Brioni.
post #56194 of 114658

It's actually commonplace for jackets/SCs/suits/pants to be insanely priced, and then for shirts to be dirt cheap.

 

 

Said no one, ever.

And so my eBay strikeouts continue...

Got this coat - Domenico Spano, great pattern, made by Adrian Jules. Hole at end of sleeve that wasn't mentioned. ffffuuuu.gif Would need to shorten sleeves and hole may be hidden, but still, wtf? Shoulders are a little big anyway - might just ask for a refund unless anyone here wants it at cost+shipping.

The only thing that bothers me is that stuff is so much more expensive in Minnesota than in KC! Stuff is so cheap in your neck of the woods. RLPL anything is marked up to at least $9 here. Suits are $15+ and ties are $4+. Ugh.

I am a newbie to thrifting, hello.

I have found ten to the power of ten NWT Tom Ford suits sitting on many racks in Goodwill and am wondering whether to pick them up for one cents each. Only problem I am having is capital since 10^10 X 0.01 is still a hundred million dollars. However if you send the fund through western union I will proxy all of them for you. PS I am not an email scam, this opportunity is totally legit.

The postage might be very expensive since the box will weigh several tens of thousands of tons.

It's even funnier because when I bid and won, I thought to myself, "I bet as soon as I post this, Spoo will probably PM me for a trade."
