I hammered the thing onto the nut with the scissor jack of all things and standing on the wrench got the last nut off!

So this morning, needing the puncture plugged. I took it in to the local Discount Tire shop. But,.. with the upcoming holiday weekend EVERYBODY was in getting last minute travel fixes. So the wait to have it fixed AND mounted was going to be a ridiculously looong one. Since, I needed this done for work by 2:00, I left the tire to be plugged only, and would mount it myself @ home. I was given a 40-50 min window. TWO HOURS later it was finally finished. I arrived @ the shop prepared to be upset & cranky, but when I asked "how much?" I was told "it was on them!"

Puncture fixed, new tpm valve stem and wheel balanced,.. No Charge???

That type of customer service will have me returning for sure, wait or no wait! I don't expect freebies,.. but I certainly do appreciate them when I get them.

With that one gesture,.. they managed to remove 98% of the anger, sting and frustration over this whole F'd up situ.

Thats the Way to make happy customers out of pissy, grumpy 'ol curmudgeonly ones!!

Their customer service is why that's the only place I've bought tires for the last 15+ years.

That's an awesome story. Love those sort of dudes!
Recently met a brother in mind of your dude. Unfamiliar resort. 50cm pow. Itching to go off piste but... not familiar with the terrain and being topographically handicappey? Meh... Met that 68yo skier on a chair. He asked if we enjoy all that fabulous pow. We said that we stay close to the piste cos ya know, but the terrain over there looks terrific! But with all those cliffs... one should really know the terrain. - Ah, that's where I go. Just follow me. He said and lightened a spliff.

We spent the entire day riding with him, he showed us all the great lines, pointed out all the hidden crevasses and entries to chutes, and had a very fast pace. When I mentioned that I love how fast he skies big fast turns, that it's a pleasure to follow him he laught and said his knees are too bad to do too many short turns, straight is easier. Lol. 'Twas our best day this season following this grizzly skier with the heart of a 20yo

He skids to a stop and apologises, hoping he didn't throw me off. I tell him it's all good, no harm done. He gets this cheeky smirk on his face and says "You like going fast aye? Catch me if you can!" points it downhill and goes into a tuck. I try my best but no chance of catching him as he steadily pulls away.
