For the past few weeks, I’ve been posting horrors stories of the greasy and underhanded variety, from the customer’s perspective. Now I ask the professionals to give us their take on the worst customonsters that they’ve encountered when on the clock.

You can send your responses to apidaonline@gmail.com. Your names and positions will be withheld for the purposes of the story. I’ll round up the best ones for a juicy post or two in the coming weeks.

Tavarish is the founder of APiDA Online and writes and makes videos about buying and selling cool cars on the internet. He owns the world’s cheapest Mercedes S-Class, a graffiti-bombed Lexus, and he’s the only Jalopnik author that has never driven a Miata. He also has a real name that he didn’t feel was journalist-y enough so he used a pen name and this was the best he could do.

You can also follow him on Twitter and Facebook. He won’t mind.
