Dude Chill. With only one paint store in the county that I was working in they do somethings that help save time and money a five dollar fuel charge is nothing compared to having to take time out of my time.

2 hour round trip, 4 gallons, dropped at my feet within 3 hours, no fuel bill.

Did you agree to pay before they left???

Both porter and SW deliver to me once or twice a month. I always ask ahead of time unless it's an emergency and I don't get bent out of shape of they can't make it for some reason ( usually staff) As a paying customer I don't feel bad utilizing their services but I don't abuse the privilege.

You would need that to break even.

They never told me about till they showed up. Like I said before it was not big deal. Just something new. I paid it never know when I might need their help again. I know with fuel over 4 bucks a gallon my favorite paint store has now implemented a 10 gal min for delivery. I am cool with that too. In my last post on this i was just responding to some one who seamed to have knee jerk reaction. But more of a Jerk reaction.
