  • to hell with me?

    Ok, so i've been working on members' cars for a long time. Almost 6 years to be exact. What is turning people away? Am I too expensive? Are they tired of me? I know i'm not on much anymore, but that happens when you get married. All of the people who have used my services and have always been satisfied are now saying "yeah, use him" about someone else who they have used maybe once. What happened to the faith in me? I guess it just goes to show who respects who. I used to get referrals from all over the place, now, nothing nathan NADA. Its true you get what you pay for, but where else can you get the best for the least? (thats not cockiness, thats confidence.)

    Whats the deal?

            Bryan, I'll be needing your services soon, unless we decide to trade the Jetta in for a Passat I'll need that timing belt replaced

              werd guys. I know the main crew will always come back. Thats never an issue or aq worry. Some of the other guys though.. worked on their cars several times, were extremely satisfied with the work, then someone new pops up and they go slob their nuts. I guess my big thing is loyalty. I can count on a lot of guys here to be there, and you know who you are. The other ones though, I dunno. People who tuck and run at the next "best" thing reallypisses me off.

              Loyalty is rewarded in my game.

                    No I havent heard, and I dont really have the capability to do them at the house. Maybe someday when I get more money I can get the right stuff to do it.

                        personally i think its because you don't show up to any of the gtg's. that's how i met vwsickness and he's worked on my car more than anybody elses. i know you're married, but every now and then you could make an appearance somewhere. that goes the same with a lot of you old school cats. you don't come out and you think we're all "noobs". i agree there are a lot of immature kids out there, but there's also a lot of mature people. i'm only 21 and freshly turned 21 at that, but i have more common sense than most people in their 20's. i heard you do great work, but i use vwsickness(david) because he comes out and hangs out with everybody and i know i can trust him with my car. that's my .02 cents take it how you want it, i'm not trying to bash anyone:cheers:

                          Ok so explain this to me.. 95% of the GTG's are during the week. lets have a look at my work schedule.. Oh yeah, it says right here that my hours of work are from 4pm to midnight monday through friday. now, how can you expect me to make it to the meets? Seems kind of hard to me.

                          Weekend meets.. How many of those have there been? Not many. What kind of meets are they? Sitting in a parking lot looking at the same cars over and over again? Now if they were the meets like we used to have, i'd think about showing up. Yes, I am married and I have certain obligations to my wife and my home. That is my priority.

                            my bad, i forgot you worked those hours. yes you do have an obligation to your wife and family, but you could at least show up once a month. as far as the gtg's, yes most of them are just a bunch of guys sitting around looking at each other's cars, but more input from people would be great. i'm down for a cruise anytime, or going out to eat somewhere, hell even to watch some boobies. i wouldn't mind hanging out and with you guys.
