Boy oh boy...I spent more than four hours today at the Toyota service centre in the Prai Industrial Estate waiting for my car to be serviced. Arrived there at 8am and spent the time catching up on some outstanding work. All off-line, of course, because the service centre doesn't even have a WiFi service for their customers. Toyota is either a cheapskate or they haven't caught up with technology yet.
Anyway, I could detect a very weak unsecured wireless signal from where I was seated so whenever I could, I piggybacked on it for some surfing. But I gave up after a while. It's times like this when I wish that I have Andrew's WiFry contraption with me!
Here's a picture of the new Avanza 1.5 in the showroom with its latest cosmetic changes. Looks nice, eh? Price also very nice...
At about 11.45am, I could see that my car was just about ready. But it puzzled me that the Toyota staff did not contact me to collect it. I waited until about 12.30pm before I approached their staff to enquire. Yup, my car was ready. But I asked the lady why she didn't try to contact me? She said she did, two or three times, but I told her nonsense. Not once did my mobile ring. And she could have tried to walk round to the waiting area to call for me. She didn't. Not initiative enough to do something extra for the customers, especially since she knew I would be waiting. In my opinion, it's very bad service from her. And all she could do was to look at me apologetically. She's stupid, really very stupid.
