No wonder you're livid!


Storyline: Mark tells June that he was ripped off by a garage.  June sympathizes with Mark and suggests that he file a complaint with the consumer protection agency.
June: You look so angry. What happened?
Mark: Nothing.   I'd rather not talk about it.  Just don't ask.
June: Come on.  I think you need to let off some steam.  Besides, you shouldn't keep your feelings pent up.  They'll eat you alive.  So, talk to me.
Mark: All right.  This morning I took my car to the garage to have them check the air-conditioner. They only gave it a once-over, refilled it with some Freon, and charged me 300 bucks!
June: No wonder you're livid.  I'd be mad, too if someone ripped me off like that.
Mark: Yeah.   AND they were rude.  They said I didn't know anything about cars, which I don't, but they didn't have to be so blunt!
June: Sounds like you got a raw deal!  Maybe you should file a complaint with the Consumer Protection Agency.
