Unscrupulous mechanic

I thought yesterday morning i want to run amok at the workshop where i got cheated last time..(aiseh!! macam kuat!)..but God like knows my bad intention and He plans other thing to happen yesterday..I woke up pretty early, ready to battle with the 'ngox' mechanic who glued my window bracket when it got spoiled not long time ago. But..hehee as angry as i was that morning, i still dragged hubby to go to the workshop in case i get beaten up ka..Hahaa..
I keep babbling all morning (kesian hubby kena leter by me) on how terrible was the stupid mechanic who cheat my RM148 for the job of gluing my bracket. So i babble..babble..and babble..until hubby also boring already..so off we were, i was soooo ready to give the mechanic @ workshop owner a hell..sekali i opened my car door, suddenly my alarm went off and blaring for the whole apartment area to hear. Ayak!! Celaka! Never in the past two years my car bunyi-bunyi alarm like that you know..I said..ok lah!! wait until it stop...and it did stop. Sekali i want to start my engine..."Chak....chak.." thats all sound that came off...and Yes!!! I cannot start my car!!! Bengong sungguh!!!! No matter how i try to start my engine, no luck! My car just refused to be started..! Sakit hatinya!!! i was soooo semangat already to marah the mechanic, but my car kacau daun pulak..
At first me and hubby thought it was my battery problem coz' usually if the alarm suddenly went off for no apparent reason, it's because the battery already exhausted. No choice, hubby had to go to the nearest workshop (accessories shop still not opened) to get my battery.
Cut my story short, nope!! It's not my battery probs. The mechanic who came to check my car told us, it might be the starter problem. But weird juga coz' i just changed my starter not long time ago juga..but after a talk with the boss (The cheater punya brother), they decided it's my alarm system caused the problem..hmmm...logic juga, coz every light in my car cannot stop blinking..(Next time if you experience this kind of problem with your car, do take note, your alarm system might gone haywire).
So..i didn't managed go to the Penjahat Workshop because i've to get my car fixed immediately. Terpaksa go to the Penjahat Brother's Workshop...! (means i cannot make a scene at the penjahat workshop la! hahaha)..! After they checked my car, the boss agreed that it was only the window glass got detached from the bracket..that means, last time the brother just glued the bracket to the window, but not changed it..bukannya rosak, just telepas saja..!!!! Seeeeeeeee!!!!! Angry or not if you were me?? Then only my hubby told the workshop boss that his brother charged me RM148 for the glue!! But nothing much can be done already..so i just get my window and alarm system fixed and my car is ok already...and the boss charged us RM30 for that!! *phew*
So macam tu lah..if your car suddenly become crazy where the alarm system cannot stop blaring, or your window suddenly gila, it might be a small problem only lah. If you are driving a perodua car (i think all perodua car sama saja nie...i'm driving a kembara), the window and the brackets are not screwed together ya..it is glued saja..! Bongoh juga..but maybe Perodua has a reason behind that design??!!! Ntah lah!!!! so don't let yourself get cheated by unscrupulous mechanic like me ya..! If you have no idea on whats wrong with your car (advice for women nie!!), just drag your bf, father, uncle, husband or brother to the workshop..i'm sure, you won't get cheated..at least the man you dragged with can pretend he knows everything about car mah!! hahaha oh and yes..he can help you to observe the mechanic doing works.. :)
Bah remember my advice ya..!!
**I'm going to meet Defoo in a short while to get my BBKK tee and car sticker..wohoooo!!!!!

Kadus mama,

I am sorry to hear about what had happened to you. Thanks for sharing your experience on your car because it will alert the rest of us of a conman or con mechanic. If only you have a photo on the window and the bracket, then we will be able to comprehend better. Try read my blog regarding the side mirror of my MyVi.

It must be really frustrating when you were about to scold the mechanic and you car died. Geee...the water must be really really boiling hot.probably 200 degrees.

K. don't forget to pay me a visit yeah?

slalu sudah kena gini... sian bah kuita ni pengguna /sigh.. and I keep wondering "why?".

Durang ndak rasa jaat kah tu buat gitu ahh ^.^

Gallivanter said...

Iya, if the alarm is blaring, it doesn't mean that the battery is dead. If the battery is dead, the alarm won't go off at all.

But iya..kalau suma lampu tiba2 blinking2 gila babi, then it must be the alarm system probs tu..hehehe

Nick Phillips said...

Penjahat! LOL! I like your term for your mechanic la ...

I think it's Perodua's idea of just gluing the stuff together so people will definitely have to return to have it fixed over and over again. It's a conspiracy I tell you ... LOL!

Kiko said...

I'd say the alarm cut the battery off to keep your car from being stolen. That's what alarms do, eh? Stop the theif in more ways than one. Very effective... (read your manual)

You write a very funny blog here. muy kewl My son lives in Korea and has an Asian gf. I need to get up on the cultural stuff and you girls rock.

Love to see the technology in action. Send this story to Click and Clack, they might use it on the show.

Ya..i agree with you too..perodua wants us the users to keep coming back to them to get our car fixed..
