Holy shit....Me and my friends fucking eat those every time we go to one.

so why $200 + price different in alarm/installs. , besides i never said drive to TO, i just said its a rippoff to get the alarms installed at these places.

u should think in ur head not ur ass
I'm not taking it personally. There are markups everywhere. There are many reasons why prices are different everywhere. It's the same as why cars of the exact same model are 8k cheaper in the states.

But if I may ask, if it's such a rip off to get it installed at these places, where is a better place?

Thats hilarious.
There are a lot of places like Futureshop Best Buy that can get their 18 year old high school dropouts to slam these alarms in your precious vehicle for $449. BUT, when you find out that you need to pay extra for little things like....oh, I dunno...a proper install, all soldered connections, hidden sirens, hidden alarm brains, discreet wiring, properly placed hood pins, properly placed LEDs, proper programming and make sure that you can stand behind it 100% with zero argument...well, they don't chagre extra because they don't do ANY of the above. Also, a lot of Ontario shops sell the US model alarm which is way cheaper. It also has 1/4 the range of the CDN models. Yeah, we can order those in too....but only if we want you to complain about the horrible range.

So yeah, you definately get what you pay for and we don't charge $700 for a PRO. Its a LOT less. Unless you want all the options that big box don't even offer.

well cost is always going to be low
you guys have to consider the fact that the owners have to pay for rent, wages, electric bills, maintenance etc etc
so they aren't really "ripping" you off REALLY badly, (some do, some dont)

Me and my friends witnessed this too and made a joke about it but never thought it would be true ...

One time we went out for BBT in Richmond. My friend ordered a beef rice but the girl said they were sold out. Too bad for him so we just got drinks and started playing Big 2. Then a little while later this big table across from us leaves and I just so happen to glance over, on the table there's about 4-5 half empty rice bowls... thought nothing of it .. back to my card game.

The waitress cleans up that table.. then, 5 minutes later the waitress comes back to us and says "Hi there, did you still want to order the beef rice? We have enough for 1 order" ...

We just stared at her and shook our heads..... like WTF?!?!

You come to your own conclusions...

I really shouldn't have read all four pages of this thread........
..... I'm going to stick to cooking my own food, drinking canned goods, and fucking stay the hell away from richmond eateries.

and a big FUCK YOU to those who fuck with peoples food. How the fuck would you feel if someone did that to the food you were about to eat? How can you even sleep at night after doing such a thing. Go jump in a fire and fucking die.

you're a fucking moron.

that's like saying I have a right to key your car or steal your stereo...because if you're stupid enough to leave it on the street then you deserve it. The fact that I now have your stereo? It's my reward for a job well done. You can't expect me, who has $15K in student loans, not to take whatever I can to help me along the highway of life. And your stereo would make a pretty payment on my student loans. Makes sense, right?

You're a lowlife piece of shit. And a petty criminal to boot.

HAHA That was the most pathetic arguement I have ever heard. The fact that you can try to compare you taking your car for detailing and the guy that is detailing the car picking up 50cents off your floor and putting it in his pocket instead of sucking it up the vaccuum or tossing it in the garbage to Keying someones car and breaking in and stealing a stereo proves you should probably take more money out for student loans cuz your dumb as fuck.

Makes senses, right? No it makes no sense and your a fucktard for even thinking it does. I would love to hear other peoples thoughts on your weak sauce argument but that would take this thread off base.

Berz out.

you're a petty, pathetic thief, and that's all there is to it.

Go back to stealing your quarters and hope to god you get busted you little chump fuckward. As for being dumb as fuck...at least I earn an honest living and always have. I put my ass through university and got me a career, all the while you were swiping quarters from old ladies. You're as valuable as the dogshit stuck to the sole of my shoe.

Offroad out.
