Jiffy Lube Weasels
The oil change.
Oh, how we all dread it.
It weighs us down.
We know what is coming.
We put it off for a few days and then finally just go take our lumps.
This time will be different you think.
They'll just change my oil for the price posted and you'll be on your merry way.
But it never happens.
Your air filter is dirty.
A bulb is out.
The upgraded oil is suggested.
New wiper blades?
Need your tires rotated?
And on and on it goes.
"I don't have enough money today...maybe next time. Thank you!"
You pay and drive away. And for 5 or 10 minutes you actually worry that maybe you should have had Jiffy Lube rotate your tires.
And the negative fades to black...and you're relaxed.
Your oil has been changed.
You don't have to deal with these weasels for another 7000 miles or so (they suggest every 3000 miles, your owners manual on your car most likely suggests every 7500 miles)
SO TO SUM UP:
"Would you like a copy of Watchmen with your comic purchase today?"
