broke car window today

While doing lawn maintenance on one of our gas stations on a busy Memphis street I nailed a car window with a, I'm assuming a "rock" from the weedeater? while sitting at a traffic light. This is a 6 lane road, and the odds are pretty good this will happen again at some point hope its a couple of years though. The guy was very understanding, I wanted him to get an estimate; however he wanted cash, we decided on $160.00. This is only the second window break in 7 years.

gotta love the internet

i love google theirs a online window repair estimator/quote! the cost for this window repair from three local glass repair companies is averaging $275.00. i did make it clear that the $160.00 was final. If he wanted more cash he would need a official estimate first.
