I went to Jiffy Lube to get an oil change today. I went there because they did it last time, not because I like them. In fact, I don’t think I’ll go there anymore. I think they use a commision system for employees.
The guy who was “getting my information” tried to sell me all sorts of stuff, including a new belt because mine had cracks in it. He showed me the cracks. They were evenly spaced, every 2cm or so for the length of the belt. I asked him why they were all so evenly spaced, knowing the answer, and he told me that’s just how they wear. I quit listening to him after that. He followed instructions with pictures on a computer screen, trying to sell me all sorts of things, because the computer showed that I hadn’t had any of them recently. I really was getting a lube job.
I miss Oil Can Henry’s in Yakima. They never wanted to sell you extraneous crap, and they had newspapers, and I enjoyed going. Sadly, the Oil Can Henry’s here doesn’t service Previas.

I AM A TECHNICIAN AT JIFFY LUBE IN PORTLAND OR AND TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH I DO THE SALES, THE BELT IS RECOMMENDED BY YOUR MANUFACTURES WHEN YOU HAVE MORE THAN 3 CRACKS PER SQUARE INCH
Well thanks for commenting Tony. The cracks I was pointed out were a feature of the belt that allowed it to collapse upon itself.
