This is my story/nightmare about my 2002 Oldsmobile Alero repairs.

My car has been in for repairs since April 30th, 2015.

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015, as expected I received a call at 9:58 a.m. from Doug Pattridge to say that something came up and he would not be over to pick me up. He said his worker Alan had a problem. Someone stole Alan's dog and he was out printing up flyers and posting them around. What that has to do with not being able to come over to get me I don't know. I'm going to call Doug back now to see if he ever did pick up the flush kit. I'm thinking that he probably didn't.

Still on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015, I called Doug Pattridge at 2:11 p.m. to see if he ever did pick up the flush kit. He proceeded as always to tell me that something came up telling me about his worker Alan's dog and how Alan was set up. That no sooner had Alan put out a $1000 reward for the dog that Pet Rescue called Alan. Doug didn't go into detail as he then also mentioned that his renters were there and that he had been talking to them for about 15 minutes. How does he possibly have time to run a shop?

He's not done yet he then tells me how he has to go over to Wonewoc, Wisconsin, where he lives, to help with the blood drive that is going on tonight. Doug tells me that his Mother is the one that helps with it but he may have to start taking over for her. He has to be there at 5 p.m. so he said.

I was curious if he would bring up coming to get me still and he did say that he would come over tomorrow, Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015. I told him that my apartment manager had said that he would take me to get groceries and that I am used to him taking me so no I didn't need him to come and get me. Doug still wanted me to come over though so that he could show me what all he has done to my car. He said that he would call tomorrow and that is how the conversation ended.
