Holy shit. Wtf. That is some serious blue state behavior right there. They sent a guy to remove the plate? Are cali people incapable of removing a license plate the same as Oregon people cannot pump gas?

I think they didn't want me to abscond with their 99 cent Harbor Freight screwdriver.

It could be threaded off-center or something, but that is really unlikely.

They tried to screw you.

Remember, its 99% of dealers which give the other 1% a bad rap....

Thieves.

Sounds like you need to get out from behind enemy lines ASAP.

As far as the OP goes, I've had my fair share of oil change nightmares as well. I've always changed my own, except when I was in college since I didn't have to facilities to do so. Jiffy Lube was pretty much the only option...

That's nuts. Last time I got new plates here in Texas they asked me to swap them in the parking lot and bring my old ones in. I told them I didn't have tools with me and could I please have my new plates. Never took them back and never heard anything.

I did this on an FJ I had. Fit perfectly. Much Stronger! I agree 100% with this move.
