2) Stop by 7 - 11 and buy a case of beer, write a check for $20, drive home.

RE: Oil change

Read the statement, moron, use common sense.

The filter was 15 dollars and they had to have the parts guy bring it from the store. It isn't cheap to have the napa guy drive 15 miles in a 4.3 chevy truck to deliver 1 single filter.
