Exclamation Watch Sears Auto Rip me off - They didn't notice the dash cam!

I have been taking my vehicles to Sears for over 18 years for the alignment, balance, and rotate. I know they don't actually align anything other than tow but I get the print out that shows me all the measurements in degrees and I can tweak all my control arms at home off of that. The only thing I can't do myself is balance these 40's which is why I have been going there.

These service idiots decide just by looking at my big Jeep that it can't even be fast enough to even need a balance so they just say "I don't want to work on this big MotherF'er so F this dude" and then laugh at how they are charging me for doing nothing. FYI 6.0l V8

Dipshits didn't realize I had my dashcam on recording the whole thing. Afterwards I showed the video to the manager and sent a copy to Sears Auto corporate and the Manager apologized over and over. He refunded me and said the guy would be fired. I will never go back to Sears again.

Watch the short video below

It's a shame when we have to start relying on dashcam's, security cams to keep ppl's morals in place.

Glad ya caught the asshats!!

I told the manager that he might want to send this guy packing quickly before corporate calls him and ask him how he handled the situation.

The teenage,optimistic "me" used to tell myself the he was wrong and painfully out of touch w/ reality ,but as similar life and people experiences have occurred over 4 plus decades the advice of my Dad only becomes more and more relevant and sage ( even thought it is a bit of a downer) :

" You'll be far more generous than I could ever be if you trust a third of the people you will encounter in this lifetime but a third of the time,son "


It doesn't matter if it's idiots pulling out in front of you at intersections or douchebaggery in a Sears Auto service center * ;
Ya gotta lock,load and then rely on yourself these days...



(* now , I'm in for a but seriously, what the heck do ya think is gonna happen to ya if ya take an $80k Jeep to a Sears where they make $13.00 an hour ?
I wouldn't pull mine in a sears parking lot, let alone any nimrod there touch anything on her . )

I am extremely impressed and feel it's awesome the OP caught these gene pool weakeners by way of dashcam but this doesn't surprise me in the least,behavior wise..

yup. RamBall here for the same .

Unfortunately, the mental midget that is now seeking employment and that starred in the OPs video
would probably notice that the " rich MoFo" even left his cellphone in the dash "of this big muthf*cka" and would then use it to text dick pix to his baby's momma or whatev ...

Sears, not surprised. I've spent a few hours of my life with their customer service dept dealing with shitty appliances. Never again.

In some states it is illegal to record (audio) people without their consent. It would suck if the two douche bags ended up wit a civil settlement.

not surprised, going to Sears auto is right up there with Walmart auto IMO.

awesome that you caught them in video though.

shit like that happens all the time. If I have to use a shop I try to use one where I personally know the guys or I can watch them work from a window or door.

The only thing that may change the way they think about this is a good ass-whipping!
That reminds me, I need to get an SD card for my dash cam.

If you can't save the world, keep both hands on the camera.

Wonder how that works since the dash cam is for recording your property?

If that's a two-party state, he couldn't use it in court, but then could they as counter evidence?
