What a Deal!

Well, you never know when you’ll get a “treat”!

This morning, my husband took my car in for an oil change and state inspection. Over the five years we have lived here, we have spent GOBS of money on his truck and my Suburban. We have over 200,000 miles on each of our vehicles. They are paid off (thank our good Lord!) and we are driving them until the wheels fall off! (Dave Ramsey would hopefully be proud)

Well, when my husband walked into the service facility this morning, he said to the man at the front desk, “I’d like an inspection and oil change please, Sir.” Then my husband jokingly said with a smile, “Man, as much money as I’ve spent in this place, I ought to get a free inspection.” Much to my husband’s surprise, the man said, “Okay.” Wow!

The moral of this story? It never hurts to ask…….they might just say YES!!

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. I've heard that it's more expensive in Houston to get an inspection sticker than it is here, and I'm now guessing that's true! Ours are usually around $15 at the most.

    Sweet deal!
