Left TV for 'one week repair' of picture tube. They called with estimate after two weeks. Called after another month, 'Your part was backordered, so the supplier canceled your part'.
After 2 1/2 months, 'your TV is ready'. Paid the ransom, got TV home, now the sound is screwed up... just goes POP and quits.
