Come down to Los Angeles and we'll see if you still think that way. Obviously I dont see why you would get annoyed by the statement. it wasn't even a direct remark to you despite your a auto mechanic yourself.
whatever your trying to defend you have to admit sometimes mechanics do try to fix or charge things that dont require fixing or replacing in order to get more money out of the customer. There were couple of times where I did my own oil change and was at 1000mi into the change.. took it to a shop to have some other things check out and the mechanic tells me my engine oil is dirty and needs changing.

. Yeah, I get paid $100/hr (that in itself is a joke) just so I can take your money and laugh while I watch you drive down the road as your wheels fall off
Or how about 60% tire tread. "I think your tires needs re-placing"
