So in a nutshell my JK was in a photo shoot last week (Insurance adjusters) while it was at Northwest Dodge on the Northwest freeway. A week later I go to pick it up, and my Rigids are missing.
I am PISSED so I walk up to the service writer that MOMENT BEFORE I gave $1,900 for an extraction (2 towtrucks) and storage and tell him, at this point just in alarm- he tersly and 100% unsympathetically tells me that it happened somewhere else not at his shop, then points to his manager who has a fucking line waiting outside his door. My sense of alarm turned into anger primarily how they were treating me now that my fuking Jeep had been molested. I went into that numb part of my character that lacks empathy or the ability to "give a fuck" about consequences and repercussions- so I literal turned and walked out side to cool off. I felt like a fucking rape victim.
I walk back in and tell the guy (Bryan) that insurance JUST TOOK PICTURES OF THAT JEEP LAST WEEK AND THE LIGHTS WERE THERE... He tells me he will believe it when he sees it and asked for my agents number. The manager finally gets to me an hour later and seems about 10% interested in my issue. Then he gets all CSI on me and points out that the sediment around my holes seems undisturbed... like this isnt anything recent.
I manage to take a pic of him in the frame with my now empty Rigid pedestals, as well as the shitbrick who took $1,900 then wouldnt give me the time of day when a set of lights 10% of that bill were stolen. He takes my number, and walks off. An hour later I call his office, cant get him, and tell him insurance just sent me the file and I need his email adress. I give him my number as well as email adress... that was about 9am.
I heard nothing, now must go until Monday to follow up. I called the sherrifs office because I was ready to file charges, but I THINK I will wait until Monday, though not sure if I will wait for his call or just go up the chain to someone that DOESNT want me to be sitting in the parking lot making a police report while filing with the BBB. Im pretty pissed...
Seriously- I keep my Jeep nekkid, and once it sat in an ORP for a week and someone stole my pirate sword but besides that NEVEFR SO MUCH AS THE CHANGE HAS BEEN TAKEN FROM THE CUP HOLDERS. But a week and $1,900 into my relationship with Northwest Dodge, my VERY FIRST MOD was stolen. Im not even mad at the theives at this point, because I feel how the dealership and especially that fucking cunt Bryan handled my reporting of the incident upon first report, then the contesting that they were ever on the jeep, then the fucking super-sleuth bullshit like I am just coming up with random shit to claim is missing. Not the suspension seats, Not the LED tail lights. Not the big ass lightbar up top. No, the cheapest and most sentimental mod to date- my girlfriend bought those for me right before our first trip to Muddy Gras and a few years before I married her and made he carry my child. *sigh*
