Ok...didnt really want to post this, and if I offend anyone who's 100% honest....my apologies ....but:
I had an (in-law) relative who used to open and manage new shops for Firestone. Of course, he knew all the Goodyear managers in his area too. But in my mind, they are pretty much all the same.
Said in-law became a client of mine for a while ( financial stuff)....and let me tell you, he was paid VERY well for his shenanigans at work. He'd laugh about scaring little old ladies into buying all kinds of stuff for their cars, particularly when it came to brakes. It pizzed me off and I told him as much. He was a scumbag who became VERY wealthy in about 7 years.
Evidently, his "sales ideas" came from the corporate offices, or maybe just from his regional guy, I dont know. Either way, it was totally about his bonuses. I'm not against profits, so dont think I am. I LOVE profits ! I'm all about profits. In fact, I'm ruthless in business, some might say. There is a line I wont cross...and that's being a bald faced liar. I just wont stoop to the level that this particular individual did, in order to get them. I do it right.....and it seemed to me that this type of behavior was pretty much the norm for a lot of those chain-type auto centers. Again, apologies to the good guys who do it right....for you are not whom I speak about.
