Forget politics, the lack of pride in doing something right is America's biggest challenge.
I am no longer welcome at my local tire mart because I bring my own specs when I want something done and they don't like it. I wanted my 5- wheels rotated and made a chart including torque ratings. Then I watched. I wanted hand tools used and got into an argument right away when the air impact wrench came out.The shop didn't have a hand crank tool and the tech grumbled as he spun each lug by hand. The tech took my direction sheet and put it on the windshield and proceeded to move the wheels to the wrong locations. I had marked the tires so knew what was going on. Oh, he brought out the torque wrench and then proceeded to tighten each lug in a circle instead of an alternate pattern. I didn't say anything, but at the end when they told me it would cost double next time, I told them there would be no next time. And the only reason I was there in the first place is because I had a sore back and didn't want to lift my heavy truck wheels. If a tech doesn't know the basics or the shop just doesn't care, ditch-um.
