Angry oh I can't believe it!

ok, so i get my wheels in last friday (eddiebrock71 hooked me up nicely!) and I'm thinking: "Damn, it would be great if i could get these on before i leave for the weekend." So, i get squeezed in to Schwabbies for a quick alignment and mount in a city 50 miles away from mine on my way out. The guy is almost done with everything, 16s looking mighty nice on her, and what happens? some ******* that works for les schwab's "parks" his truck and "accidentally put it in reverse and got out" so that it could roll all the way across the parking lot and SMACK!!! crunch my focus. i can't believe this is happening! (see pic attached)



i feel like i need to go throw rocks at every les schwab truck i see from now on. this is just stupid. but the worst part? the only guy from schwabbies to come up and apologize for my inconvenience was the guy who was doing the alignment...the one who almost got smashed under the front tire!

so now i'm driving around the rental they hooked me up with...a chevy cobalt ls it doesnt even have power windows! i hope they don't deem it "totalled."

i miss my zts...

Ouch... I can't believe how stupid some people can be sometimes. Hope they fix it up nice for you, you'll be so ready to get your FoFo back after driving a Cobalt for a while.

definitely wanted/want to. and yes, after this cobalt i will be damn ready for my focus. sure, it has the "auto" lights, but my arms are tired from rolling the windows up and down, not to mention checking every door to see if it's locked or not.

my gf and i are going to watch them assess the damage tomorrow. gotta make sure they didn't strip my clutch from shoving it forward so hard while it was in gear.
