LOLOL $40/axle?? Man, I'm bringin' my stuff to YOU! lolOh man I have felt like that before, some cheap azz wants a used engine put in there car dirt cheap then wines when it blows up after a couple days then expects me to replace the junk they brought me for free. I got to the point that I just tell them to take it somewhere else. I used to do brake jobs for $40/axle and people would complain when Midas wanted $500. I have very fair prices for my services but people still complain, the last brake job I did the woman asked me to do the brakes and when I told her $40 for labor only she said she could get it done for $20, a couple days later she called me and offered me $50 to do it as the guy she paid $20 to do it took her money and left her hanging.
Another great one is people see I have a welder and ask how much to weld their rusted out exhaust up and get mad when you tell them it can't be done buy new parts and we can talk.
I have just got to the point I usually tell people I only work on my own stuff.
