You were not an asshole. Abrupt perhaps but so be it. Since you asked the question it sounds like you may have doubts about how you handled it. I've done similar things and have regretted it. What you might think about doing is calling them for another appointment and tell them why you left and how best to overcome the obstacle from the first time.

Service writers have to deal with pissed-off customers every day so I doubt they considered you an asshole. Believe it or not.....

You might receive better treatment if you got rid of the butt-ugly stock rims.

It was for a free oil change. You took the time to drive there.

So who really lost on this deal ?

I'm pretty sure the dealership isn't happy about putting people through that crap either.

I work the counter at the local golf course. We have a table in front of the counter and plexiglass barriers attached to the desk. And masks. We do not accept payments in cash. Every last one of us hates it. However, if we don't follow the rules, Fort Worth Code Compliance could come in and shut us down.

I don't blame you for the frustration, but it's the current climate we live in.

In your case you NEVER have to ask yourself that question, cause it's a GIVEN!

I think you should stand out in front of the dealership carrying a sign that says. "They can't find me in the computer for a free Oil Change"
