2 hours and 45 minutes.......

If I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes taking a nap..Id feel well rested
If I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes watching a good movie..Id think that was worth it
If I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes talking with an old friend...Id feel like we got caught up on things
If I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes playing with my nephew..Id be happy inside
If I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes with my older boys who are away to college...Id be thankful for every minute
If I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes cleaning my house..Id feel like something finally got accomplished around here!
If I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes getting my grove on with my Joshy...Id feel like ok well I wont go there

BUT instead I spent 2 hours and 45 minutes in WALMART waiting for their tire and lube guys to put ONE I repeat ONE new tire on our Grand am....this is by far one of the most ridiculous things I think we have experienced...this is what these guys do every day...after all this is their JOB....oh and it gets better...after about an hour and a half one of the guys say to Josh I dont think this is going to work..Josh asked why and so the guy takes Josh out to the garage area and proceeds to fumble thru what ever it was he was trying to say when Josh noticed they actually had the wrong tire ...I repeat the WRONG tire for our car...they had not tried putting it on yet...I have no idea what they had been doing for the last hour and a half...I should tell you their was only one car in front of us when we got there and they were just getting done with it so the wait wasnt for another vehicle...this was for our vehicle!!!! So anyway by this time Josh is livid and I cant say I blame him....I'm tired and I have spent way too much time in Walmart already...after all I had already been there before doing my shopping!!!! So they were suppose to actually rotate two of the tires but by this time Josh is just done and tells them to put the damn RIGHT tire on and be done!!! So finally 2 hours and 45 minutes after we showed up there we are finally driving away with ONE new tire!!! We actually need to get all new tires but for our little car the cheapest tire you can get is $115 and right before Christmas that's just not going to happen...so we replaced the one that was starting to split and will make do with the others for now...and God forbid we have to go back there to replace the other 3 after Christmas!!!! Can you imagine..we might as well put up a tent and blow up some air mattresses and just camp out!!!

Well I think you and Joshy should have got your grove on in the back seat of the grand am..really the walmart guys would not have noticed or you would of got out of there faster!

I would have had the manager there in a heart beat.I would of gotten soemkiond of compensation for all my time and their screw up. Just my opinion.

Damn rat bastards? Are you effing kidding me? I would have spoken to the manager and given him the riot act and gotten at least a discount or something. Write an angry letter to Walmart Headquarters expressing your disdain at how long it took for them to put ONE tire on your vehicle as well as the fact that they tried to put the wrong tire on your car. Argh. I am so pissed off on your behalf.

I started reading wondering where you came up with the number of 2 hours & 45 minutes. Geesh...that is awful. Frankly, I can't stand Wally World and it doesn't surprise me they can't figure out the right tire. Brains sometimes are filled with empty space. Can you imagine if Joshy hadn't gone back to check? I shudder to think!!

That just stinks out loud! I'd be finding somewhere else to go for the other three. Just for the principle if nothing else.

Maybe they had to send someone down the road to Sears to get the right tire? I didn't even know Wal-Mart did tires.

By the way, come on out here and we can change the other 3 for only slightly higher than you paid for the one. Or do you want me to buy them and send them to you? How big is your mailbox? hehe
