we all hate shady car sales men, just like plumbers where they look at you (woman) and give you a quote for an outrageous price. or even better, tell you need a camera to see where the problem really is coming from and BAM, your out $300 bucks.
Of course, our pipes decided to back up in the laundry room on a weekend at my business where it's the busiest time. so instead of calling them on a Saturday or Sunday, since most plumbers charge for EMERGENCY. We did our laundry at the local laundry mat and waited till today. I asked to be the first call at 8;00 AM., 8;03 they showed up.
snaked the drain in 15 minutes and charged me 75.00 bucks. no hassle, quick and efficient and close by.
