LIFE - FFS

Since pay day is out of the way, finally sorted the blown tyre from the trip to Wellington. Got a few quotes from a few places. Settled on one, and booked her in today. Here's how it went:

"$220 per tyre, all up, including GST, fitting, balanced and everything". He wrote in brackets below that (Wheel alignment $67.00). Now when he says "...and everything" I presumed the wheel alignment bit was pointing out that the wheel alignment was $67.00 of the $440.00 all up for the tyres, but oh no...It's "$440.00 , all up, including GST, fitting, balanced and everything", PLUS $67.00 for wheel alignment... For f%$# sake! So it was $507.00 all up.

...So there's $507.00 we didn't have spare gone. Three mortgage payments this month. Xball in Sydney. Perhaps I can't afford to be playing two series...:-(
