I had ordered some new slicks at work (Gotta love working at a part store
) last tuesday they would arrived on thursday my day off. I dont live in the town that I work and the car was at the track in another town.
We have a local theisen in town its kinda like a farm store but also sell tires and does oil changes. They have been buying old warmarts when they go to super centers.
I stopped by that night to make sure that they had tubes and could mount the slicks on my rims. I was told yes no problem. So I made sure that the guy I was talking to would be there on the 4th. He would be.
I had thursday off and went and got my rims. Friday i went and dropped everything off. As I was getting ready to back out I got stopped. The Asst. manager said that due to liabilty issues they could not mount my slicks.
I got pissed, its the 4th of July there is NOTHING else that does tires that is open. The head manager was on vac. Headquarter was closed I tried calling.
I told the manager that I was screwed and that I couldnt get my tires mounted anyway that day or the next day as I had to work.
Supposely this had just changed a couple of weeks ago. I dont understand there idea on this I even offered to write a wavier for them.
It wouldnt have bother me if I had been told up front that they couldnt that way I couldve done them on thursday but I was trying to save gas and time as it in the wrong direction for me. Even if it had been any day but the 4th it wouldve been kinda ok because i couldve gone somewere else.
I guess should I be upset? I know im venting but im feeling better somewhat at least with the old slicks i got told im finally lifting one front tire but I so wanted the new slicks running a 8.01 in the 1/8 I really wanted a 7 sec pass.
