Clearly you have NOT been studying the script. When I say, "Wah, wah, poor me, I feel like I'm being taken for a sucker on these stupid car repairs," YOUR line is, "Oh, me too, there's nothing for it but to pay what they ask and hope they're not laughing after you leave. Just take it in and don't think about it." THAT'S your line. Not, "Your paranoid feelings are 100% accurate, and you should definitely call around / take the car to various dealers / do it yourself / not do it at all."
My life philosophy is: Do what is easiest, then whine about it. So what I do in situations like this is take the car in and hand over what they say it costs, without arguing or getting another opinion or expending any energy beyond what is required for (a) fretting and (b) complaining. Which is what I had already done by the time I did my complaining yesterday. So now it is time for your line, which is, "Oh, totally, that's what I would have done too."
Also: Henry is ready for his close-up.
