UPDATE FROM HOUSE FLY, MERCEDES BENZ IN THE SHOPPE EDITION

One week prior to my escape from Princeton down to the warmer climes of Cary, NC I sent my car down to a dealership in Chapel Hill to have its timing chain fixed. It’s an expensive, time exhaustive job, but I was willing to shell out the dough and I was equally happy about the specter of my car being ready for me upon my arrival to the south.

The events that have transpired since then can only be described as cartoonish and evil.

On the third day in Cary, my wife endured a tire blowout on the rental, ripped up rim, fucked alignment, which is bound to cost me over $1k.

Over the past three weeks my local mechanic gave me a sundry of reasons as to why the car was still in the shoppe. He was apparently fixing any number of things. Also, stuff kept breaking and parts needed to be ordered from Mercedes, which took time. Today I went to pick up the vehicle and it was slow to start. I then examined the work order and NONE of the things I asked to be fixed was fixed. As a point in fact, the mechanic has rummaged throughout my computer and ripped apart the intake valve — messed up the cam shaft position and fucked my car.

The net result was a full refund and an appointment at the local Benz dealership for next week, which is bound to set me back $5k.

As a side addendum, I just paid $550 to get one of my Macs repaired and I brought it home, excited like a school girl to have it fixed, only to be miserably disappointed by the fact it was, in fact, still broken with the same exact issues as when I bought that to the Apple store 2 weeks ago.

FML.

PS: This can only mean one thing. MASSIVE WINSHIP FOR MY STOCKS AHEAD.

    That sucks. Now even Apple service is sucking it.
    Couldn’t they simply inform you that they don’t know a $#@* thing about Benz’s when you called?
    Benz dealerships now charge $500 just to say Hi to you upon arrival.

    Perhaps check with the Driver Brother’s mechanics. I think they are down there in the southlands somewhere.

    Some We Work info:
    WeWork, on the other hand, consistently burns cash and has no expectation of making money “in the foreseeable future” according to its own SEC filing.

    WeWork lost almost $1 billion in the first six months of 2019, putting it on pace to lose even more money than the $1.9 billion it lost in 2018.

    WeWork’s mission to “elevate the world’s consciousness.” That’s straight out of the company’s SEC filing.

    We work is a scam. A total fucking zero. I put more faith into the fly’s southern mechanic than I would put in wework making money.

    “The best or nothing” eh? I retired a 20yr old AMG because it was too fucking dangerous to drive due to rust. Would never buy a new Benz today. Had a great mechanic though.

    Don’t ever expect reliability from a European car. They are all flash but ridiculously, arrogantly over-engineered resulting in continual repair. I hate to say it, but if you want to own a car without going broke … you have to go Japanese. Gasp – there, I said it.
