There are some things that invite retailers to Fuck your brains out. Weddings, funerals, matresses, jewelry, luxury car parts...you know the drill. For some reason, the builder who built my house specified a steel door, and now, 30 years later, it's rusting and looks like hell. I want a new door that looks like wood, has glass in it, and is maintenance-free. These are not extreme specifications. When talking to the companies who furnish replacement doors, I get basically the same story. "Well, the cost will be around $5,000, or more, depending on the particulars that you pick." After going through The Process with four different Reps, I'm getting quotes from $11-15,000. Are you fucking kidding me? We are talking about a DOOR, for Christ sake! I could furnish a pretty nice woodworking shop for $15,000. A nice MOTORCYCLE. I'm thinking about just telling one of them and saying my You know what I want; you have $8,000 to work with." Fortunately, I'm retired, and this won't break me one way or another, but it's still aggravating.
