Steady progress, slowly… that’s the name of the game.
You may remember that a couple weeks ago we got stood up on our appointment to repair some damage to the vinyl on our dashboard, door, and driver’s seat. After waiting around all day no one showed up and I got really annoyed so I sent an email to the company that franchises the individual operators.
Subsequent to that I was told that the President of the company would be in our are the weekend of February 14 and could he stop by. I agreed to that and thought nothing much more about it until last night.
Well, last night I had a phone call from the local franchisee asking if they could come out and do the job today. I agreed. It’s not a huge amount of work; but we hoped to have a decent repair and be done with it. We made an appointment for 10 a.m..
Wouldn’t you know it. 10 a.m. came and went. 11 a.m. came and went. 12 noon came and went. Brian arrived some time after noon. He looked at the three parts of the job (I didn’t take pictures of damage on the door so that is not illustrated) and decided that he could do nothing about the vinyl on the driver’s seat, and that the door panel wasn’t any kind of plastic he could work with (using the heat gun that they utilize to cure the vinyl only turned the panel brown like toast). So, we waited two weeks to get 1/3 of the job done.
He’s a nice guy, and did a passable job. Not one I’m super proud of. I’ll be curious to see whether we still find ourselves visited by another representative of the company — and most importantly what he might have to say about the quality of the job — and why 2/3 of the job appeared to be beyond their expertise.
That’s as far as I’m going with this topic today. I’m curious to see if we are visited over the weekend as originally promised.
I’m hoping the repair (by a different facility) to our door and slide toppers goes better than this.
Thanks for stopping. I know I didn’t have a lot to say today. It’s one of those days. But I’ll be here tomorrow.
