Auto Repair Shop Quotes 260,000 RMB to Repair 230,000 RMB Car

Recently, the story of an auto shop quoting 260,000 RMB to repair a car that is worth only 230,000 RMB has been getting a lot of attention. After months of procrastinating, the man has finally decided to give up on the car, but he was still required to pay a towing and storage fee of 56,000 RMB before he could take the totaled vehicle away. Netizens skeptical of shady businesses expressed their dissatisfaction, with one top rated commenter saying “This is nothing, in a hospital a treatment worth 100 RMB will cost at least 1000.”

    Uh, isn’t that just called a write~off? As in, its been so demolished it’s not worth repairing. Pretty common I thought. I guess the mighty netizens know something I don’t.
    But wow, that storage and towing is a double scamburger with cheese.

      Its a “totaled” car man.

        English. I used to speak it weller. But no matter how you say it, it’s non-news.

          In insurance terms they call that totaled man, wasn’t trying to correct you, was agreeing. Sorry if I wasn’t too clear, long uncool morning.

            Ha ha, no prob. Actually, I thought insurers used the term “write-off.”
            After you’re comment I freaked out a little cuz I really did forget the word ‘totaled.’ I’m blaming that one on China and all the freaking British English over here. I confuse myself now. Who taught those people how to speak, anyway? :D

            They use both. Had some dickweed T-bone me while he was texting 6-7 years ago back in the States and I can remember being kind of confused by the fact that the appraiser they sent out seem to use both interchangeably. As to British-isms, I’ve picked up a few nice ones too, but they sure do pack a ton of accents into a small amount of real estate.
