I owe a garage money, but I don't know if I should actually pay. I owe £55, and have told them that I would pay, but they were rude and unprofessional, and after explaining my situation, they threatened me with legal action. Many people tell me that I should not pay and that I should take this to the newspapers, but I don't want to be facing a legal lawsuit and whilst sometimes I am determined to pay them, on the date, that I agreed to pay them, I don't know if I actually should.
if you don't pay someone whom you owe then you are a parasite to society
They have done you a service, why wouldn't you pay just because they were rude? Some people are rude or they have a bad day, not a reason for you to keep the money.

try watching that programme called "you can't pay - we'll take it away", people get done for the weirdest and seemingly harmless things
I was just about to say that!! MrAnonymous129, what grounds do you have for knocking off £5 (which is a pathetically small amount - not enough to make a statement, or enough to "hurt" the garage in any way, but enough to make you look a bit of an idiot!)? If your grounds are that they were rude, I would have to say, I hope they haven't given you your car back because there aren't many garages that will let you take your car away whn you haven't paid what you owe them. Rudeness is not a reason to withhold payment. You say that you "explained your situation" and they then threatened you with legal action - the only reason I can see them doing this is that your situation was that you could not pay the bill - in which case they are quite right to threaten you with legal action - and quite right to expect payment.
I mean you don't sound like a lovely person to do business with either. My garage aren't super friendly to me but their work is excellent, they deliver on their promises and they are consistent, so I pay in full every time on the spot.
I hope you get a dig off the grease monkey in charge.
