How in the hell did they manage that?! I give you props for being a lot calmer than me. I would have lost my s**t on them. They better fix it yesterday, and it better look perfect!

I can't believe he had the balls to even give it back to you looking like that. That sucks on so many levels. I wish you the best of luck on resolving this and getting your car back on the road.

I would have told him that the fender is here now and he better hurry up and get this fixed if he needs the room that badly, then kindly let him know that just parking it outside until whenever is not how this will end. I hope you haven't finished paying for the job yet, and be able to use that carrot on the dude.

Im pretty sure the guy did not sent it on purpose. And since something like this can evolere into alot of screaming and bad talk round town, and amongst future customers, im sure he will make that lilttle bu bu go away Real soon. Im in the industrie myself and something like this can and does happen, but when it does you need to keep the customers happy by taking care of it asap. And a dent like that is not a Big deal to get fixed. But im sorry you get to wait some more before getting it out on the Road again.

Logically, that's the way it should work, yes. However, having had a similar experience a long time ago, I learned that some people just don't give a damn and operate with a PT Barnum attitude.
