Why black folk so.... whateva!


Went to Lowe's Home Center. They had an automatic key-making machine. Didn't really need an extra (backdoor) key, but thought it was interesting so I hit the start button. To my surprise, it asked if my key was for a "car" or the house! And the price for a car key was $2.97!!! (My dealer charged me $100 for a dup key, ok?). So first, the back door key, then after I received it, the car key.

"See the hardware desk personnel," read the message on the screen.

Ok. Went to hardware. Brutha behind the service desk told me it would $40 to get another car key made....

:wtf:

But, but, but it says $2.97! "Your key has a chip in it, thus it costs $40," he replied.

Then the fun. Why the $37 difference.... for a "chip" that prolly cost the manufacturer a penny?

"Well, see, if I make one without the chip, your car won't start!"

....even though whether or not the car would start was not the question.

:ummm: I'm not going through the whole RIDICULOUS back and forth (hard to call that a conversation!). Just that I couldn't get the brutha to see that the chip was nothing but an excuse for a rip-off. And.... the newer, more expensive the car, the more the key with the chip costs (know one sista who has a $60,000 truck - dealer charged her $500 for a dup key!). Rip-off.

"Some" black people are idiots. Black folk under age 40 are so accustomed to being ripped off by big business that they don't even bother to question, much less fight the power! :power:

The FIGHT was never in THIS generation. They're too busy fighting over the crumbs to sit at the table.
