ETCG’s Top 5 Pet Peeves About Auto Repair Customers

Posted by autogus on
ETCG’s Top 5 Pet Peeves About Auto Repair Customers


This one actually comes in by suggestion. I wish I could remember from where, but I thought it was a great idea.

We all have things that bug us about the jobs we do. In this video I talk about some of the things that auto repair customers do that I find annoying. Well, to be fair, it’s not all their fault. Still, these things do bug me.

I have a feeling this one will spark a lot of discussion. Please keep in mind this is just a response to a viewer request. I don’t sit around thinking about all the things that customers do to bug me, or anyone else for that matter. If not for customers, I’d be out of a job.

That said, there are times when the job can get annoying. Here is my list of things that I feel contribute to that.

Lastly, as for waiters, I realize there often isn’t a choice. As I said in the video, it’s not the waiters so much as the timing that can get annoying. Customers have nothing to do with that. It’s really just part of the job.

Feel free to leave comments about what bothers you about auto repair customers.
