Well, I had a rant once about Merchant's Tire and Auto. Now I need to get two new tires and have an alignment, and I was going to go to NTB. But I found out that NTB and Merchant's are one and the same sort of. But I think I'm still going to go to NTB. This is kind of like going to confession, though I don't expect absolution.
My reasoning for doing this and not going to the dealer I know and trust is that NTB guarantees your alignment for 6 months (or a year?). The place I'm staying at in July is in the land of horrible roads, and I'm figuring it'll go out of alignment just in that month. And I need to save money. And I can't wait to get my alignment until August because I might be doing a big trip 4th of July weekend and it's already out of alignment. And I have to take care of my car. So there you go.
Whip me. Beat me. Chastise me. I'm sorry to let you down.
Of course, karma is already rearing its ugly head. I figured I'd feel better if I went to the NTB I had always gone to, so drove there special this morning, and the store is no longer there. So I couldn't get it done today.
