If you have read these posts awhile, you know I have a thing for German cars. The precision. The handling. The ergonomics. The touch. The shine. The control. These machines, when driven right, and not in the stupid Eco Mode they all have now, make you feel like you are driving it versus it driving you (yes, I know, when our Tesla arrives I will go the exact opposite way), but one of the best things I like is, well, the service experience.
Now, I have often compared the products of Steelwerks’ to a German car for all the exact reasons listed above, and now, I also include service, though they do not offer free coffee or donuts and your choice of seating is rather erotic as it’s the amazing antique barber’s chair that you have undoubtably seen on the Twitter. I am saying all of this a bit lighter than it should be because it wasn’t an emergency and my “check chastity” light had not even blinked let alone stayed lit, but I needed just a tad more space for my PA to travel in my Titanium Schandmaske (possibly the best steelwerk’s product for pierced casual wearers or newbies as it’s just amazing and relatively inexpensive – without a six month wait too – though some lock in this device 24/7 since it can go through airport security and is clean and light with just as much security)
Anyway, to make a long story short, I had a dead day between where I had to be Monday and where I had to be Wednesday, so I decided to fly through Montreal and hang out with my Steelwerks’ besties for the day and, while I was there, have Chris make that slight adjustment and, also just like a German car dealer, shine my puppy up like brand new before redelivering it to be (you know, from 3 feet away). My schandmaske looks amazing and, when I get to my hotel in a bit (didn’t want to wear it through customs), my penis will be shinier than it’s been in months. Maybe I will tweet pics, maybe. You know how I hate showing my metal though. Ha.
The unscheduled maintenance aside, I always have a blast just sitting in there working on my shit while he and his team make, polish and clean things. I am sure to an outsider it would have to be funny sight as I am, even dressed down, clearly an outsider in there sitting in the aforementioned chair typing away on my MacBook and looking at spread sheets, while all around me the inked people play with metal peni and things that go on lady parts. It’s quite a scene. But one of my favorites.
But, it’s time for me to get on a plane so I will make this one shorter. Soon I will post about the second part of the day with J., Steelwerk’s business super senior executive director of business, customer experience, finance and resident therapist. Just being around this one is a great day in itself, so more soon.
Finally, Chris wanted me to say that to any of his customers who want to travel to Montreal to have your junk’s junk polished, he will shine you up for free. J. asked me to mention there would be a nominal charge, but just tell them Drew sent you and you will be shiny as me soon!
