dealerships, and for us!  You can't even take a chance on firing them, because the
competency level of the replacement workforce is either unknown (scary enough) or, again,
through experience, known all too well (much scarier).  My only remedy to your dilemma is
to use the time-proven method of asking to be taken to the leader of each level of
incompetence, until you reach someone who has the power to say "yes."  If you reach
someone with this power, you at least will know that you have gone as far as you can
before you have to sue.  Let me know how it works out.  Regards, Tom Donohue
