The rear window brake light on the back window of my car had gotten knocked off a while ago when we put some furniture into the car. It's been that way much too long now. I tried to fix it myself. Got some glue for glass, but it took too long to dry and I couldn't hold it against the glass long enough. And even using duct tape, I couldn't hold it down tight enough. It would very slowly slide down.
So, Friday I finally got over to a place that does auto glass things. I'd looked in the phone book and picked Speedy Glass. I walked in. Told Eric what I needed. He came out and looked at the car. Said, be right back. Came back with a spray to loosen the old adhesive I'd used. Scraped it off with a razor blade. Then he had his own adhesive - fast dry he said - and sprayed it. In less than ten minutes it was back up and sticking. I asked him what I owed. He just looked at me, waved his hand, and dismissed my question. Nothing.
It's about nine hours later and it's still up and fine.
Businesses used to do things like that regularly. If it didn't take long and wasn't a big deal, they just smiled and said, glad I could help. It was exactly what I needed today.
You know where I'm going if I need anything to do with glass in the future.
Just looked them up to make sure I got the name right. It seems my experience wasn't unusual. Here are two google reviews I found:
"Best Speedy location ever! Eric is a very helpful manager, the work is finished quickly. Can't beat the prices. The customer service is the best! #1 recommended location for glass needs."
"If I could put another star I would. Especially considering what a asswipe at the 5th avenue location treated me, (no back in jan 2012) Eric &club Brian took the issue, resolved it with no questions asked, and did a phenomenal job. From Carmen in the front, always so inviting and was very quick to get me a appointment the next day after coming in. I can speak alllllll day about these guys. Everyone was so chill. And they even called me back to make sure they vacuumed out the back. Thanks a million team."
