These guys aren't technicians, they are sales people. They must work on some type of commission, because their interest isn't in finding out what your computer needs are. They are interested in selling you the most expensive piece of plastic that you will buy. Please talk to the computer guy at work before buying from these people.
PROS: If you got the cash, they got the PC
CONS: you can find better quality and better prices elsewhere
This Father/Son team were very responsive and incredibly helpful when others wern't. They gave me some free advise, and left without charging me. When I called them back to give them some business, I didn't get a return phone call, and ended up installing the disposal myself. They left me with a good impression the one time I met them- don't know what happened with the phone call.
Chuckee Cheese is a great place for the kids. The pizza isn't bad at all, the kids are on overdrive, and the place is relativly nice. Prices are reasonable, and it's a easy way to entertain the little ones.
PROS: Nice place to be a kid
CONS: Other people's kids
When you do a lousy job pressing my shirts and I show you, why get mad at me? I pay you to get the wrinkles out. When I show up and my shirts are still wrinkled, why get angry with me? Shouldn't I be angry with you? Should I rip the corners off my cash and pay you with that?
PROS: wonderful dim sum
CONS: dem some crazy people there
I really do not understand when cleaners put signs in their window that state "in by 9, out by 5" and then refuse to do that. I do not understand. Such was the case when I showed up one morning well before the established deadline with eight shirts, and was told "no, you get them two days". No? Why did I drag myself up here? Believe me, it was the last time.
PROS: they speak fluent Korean
CONS: they don't know what 'keeping your word' means.
This shop doesn't look like much, but the mechanics know what they are doing, and will fix your ride for a very reasonable price. I recently sent my mother there for some car work. Rather than taking advantage of a 71 year old woman, they told her the truth about her problem and sent her on her way- no charge. A lot of shops would replace something and charge you top dollar.
CONS: nothing fancy
Sonny is a nice older gentleman from the old school. He's not fancy, and doesn't speak unless he's got something to say. He knows what he's doing, and will tell you outright what the problem is, and how much it's going to be to fix it. If you would like a espresso while you wait to have your BMW tuned, find another place. If you want your foreign car fixed, take it here.
PROS: Resaonable, reliable
CONS: dirty, greasy, oily, and generally not so nice.
My very affectionate kitten decided to follow me all around... until I accidentally stepped on the little guy's leg. He hobbled around for a day or two when I decided it was time to go see the vet. She was very professional, kept me informed, and was very caring with my pet. I had a very good experience here for a reasonable price. (And I didn't break the little guy's leg after all).
PROS: experienced, professional
CONS: very popular, ie- busy
And then the guys told me they didn't have the oil 'in stock' that I paid for. So I went and pulled 5 quarts off their shelves of the oil I paid for and handed it to them, to which they replied "oh". My 71 year old mother could do a better job.
CONS: not worth the pain
Thank God for the Lucky Ones clinic. This is a low cost spay and neuter clinic located just over the Charles County line in St. Mary's. I took my 9 month old female in for spay, and they had her out with no complications. I didn't know it, but she was in heat at the time- no extra charge from the vet! These people genuinely care about your pet, and I trust them.
PROS: Genuine care
CONS: a little far to drive
