Scumbag gets just rewards...
#1
One of my shop managers calls me today, tells me a femake customer is screaming and yelling that we stole the $1000 radio out of her car while servicing it.
She dropped the car off this morning, a tech drove it in and clearly remembers that there was in fact a very nice pull-out, DVD-screen unit in the car.
After servicing the car, it is pulled out into the parking lot to await the customer's return.
Five hours later she shows up, and spends ten minutes or so inside her car, then gets out and is fumbling around on the ground with a huge satchel-type purse.
She then comes into the store, screaming and dropping "F"-bombs on everyone there, saying we stole her radio...my manager calls me immediately, I show up 5 minutes later.
As soon as I'm getting out of my truck, she approaches me in the parking lot with "Are you the MF'er that's buying me a new MF-ing radio!?"

With that introduction, I very calmly said: "Nope, I'm the guy that is calling the police so they can figure it out"...which I did.

The cops show up, take everyone's statement. my manager says he thinks she was fumbling around trying to put the radio in her purse before she accused us, we told that to the cops, they say they can't make her open her purse and they simply file a report.
I tell the cops in private that I have multiple discreet cameras inside and outside the property, and that I will be back in my office in the morning and I will get them a copy of the video to look at. They say OK to that.

I then leave the store, and drive about 20 miles away to drop my daughter off at Girl Scouts about an hour or so later.
What do I see in the parking lot at the Habeeb-store across the street? The very same customer's car.

I walk over there and very quickly look in the window and lo and behold...somehow the radio has found its way back into the car! (a quick-release DIN mount). This is about an hour after the incident at the shop, well after 6 pm.

I call the cop from his business card, fill him in, he laughs! He says he'll be there as quick as possible.
another cop shows up to detain her (different jurisdiction), the original cop shows up. He asks her where she got the radio, she had no answer. She got arrested for filing a false police report.

Good for her.

lemme see..... Am I mistaken that we were discussing those same mean cops a few weeks ago for giving us a hard time when we want to kick it in our cars occasionally?

Oh when I say "same mean cops" he lives in my son-in-laws and daughters jurisdiction. So if this lady was arrested my son-in-laws employee/officer arrested her.

I know the feeling. We serviced a car at our shop about a month ago. Middle aged man just wanted a oil change and plug a tire. We do the work, he pays and then comes back 30 mins later and says.

"Hey I want back what y'all stole out of my car" confused I replied "ok, well what was stolen?" He proclaimed " you know damn well what was stolen and I better get it back" at this point I think I know what he had in his car. So I replied "well I'll call the local PD and you can tell them what we stole from your car" at this point the guys face turns boiling red and hauls away cursing and screaming.

I had a meeting with my guys and all of them admitted the guy seemed off his rocker. Unfortunately these things happen when in the auto repair business. I could write a book about the crazy stuff people try to get something for nothing.

Today for example a man came in very frustrated as started yelling at my guys for tightening his oil plug too tight and how he spent 3 hours trying to remove it last night and now it's FUBAR. I lift his pos van and lo behold there's another shops filter on the engine. I tell him I'm not touching it because we hadn't done the last oil change. Oh he change his tune then "oh my wife probably took it somewhere else" yeah, well after getting the bolt out (he used vice grips) the oil was so black and clumpy it was ridiculous. "Well I should have brought it here in the first place instead of me trying to F with it" was the last comment I heard before he drove away.
