Need to vent!

I was saving up a few jobs to do for today as I don't get much time to work on the Holden. I had to change the speedo cable, bleed the brakes and I had to lengthen the tail shaft for the v8 which I picked up 2 weeks ago. After bleeding the brakes and mopping up the fluid cause of leaks (new lines) I took out the new speedo cable to find the inner cable was too short. You could not even see the gearbox end. Well that has to go back. Next I moved on to the tail shaft that was lengthened. Went to do it up at the diff to find that the uni's are wrong. All I needed was to lengthen it by an inch or two. I gave them my old shaft and told them it needed to be longer by this amount. They replaced the diff end yoke with a Holden banjo unit. I have a nine inch, agghhh. What's wrong with like for like. I gave them my old tail shaft. Why can't anyone do their job. What a waste of a day. Time for a beer. Sorry just had to vent.

Unfortunately, it's becoming the norm, not the exception. It's all about getting the job done and paid for, then worry about the complaints later, if they let you complain, the usual response is your just fussy. Well that's what they tell me.
Cheers,
Dave

Yeah mate, unfortunately that train of thought leads to failure because people talk and word gets around. I know what you're saying though. Thanks Dave.
