Hey Bill X...have you ever heard of using spellcheck? If you're going to talk about me and my husband, at least make sure we understand what the hell you're saying. hehehehehe

Time for my catchphrase: THESE ARE ALL LIES NOTHING BUT LIES!!! We are here to stay and we're better than ever. Come on down. Don't believe the rumors in all these blogs.

Even if my dealership fails, my hubby makes lots of $$ shining up the brass poles at the Fremont fire house. You guys didn't really think the little pipsqueak actually put out fires, did you? The only fire he ever put out was his hemorrhoids and even that took 3 cases of preparation h. And as far as him being the man of the house, just remember 1 thing: I have the tits AND the balls in this family and yes they're all the same size.

Bill x,
I made it about halfway through your comment before I gave up. Did you even bother to proof read it before you posted it?

Hey I was just wondering... What happened to "sometimes pigs are fed and sometimes they are slaughtered"
Do you remember the note you posted at the time clocks for your service employees all to read?
BTW, I think billx up there is having a slight problem with his composition, there. He may be having his friend Al K. Hall taking his dictation LOL

That's a good question. I was going to address that last Thursday, but I was so cranked out that I forgot.

The "pig" I was referring to was that useless parts manager. You see, he always had his nose shoved up my & my genius brother's ass that his nose eventually rolled back into a snout. I bought him a nosejob years ago to remedy his condition, but he just couldn't keep his nose out of our asses. He wasn't very bright but damn could he kiss ass and he was a great errand boy. Hell, he was such a lousy manager that I had to have the service manager babysit his stupid ass. As I write this I realize I should of cut his pay years ago & I could of went to more Bonjovi concerts with all my "friends".

Please, everybody should cut the lady a break alright.. It's not like she closed the door's with out giving her employee's some type of warning, Its not like she owes her ex employee's any money for vacation owed under contract, Its not like she owes any money to customers who's car's are held hostage in the shop, It's not like she owes money for part's never ordered... right?

I came upon this letter which in my opinion is the most honest assesment of what has happened at Groth Bros. It is long but worth reading:
"I retired from Groth Bros. Chevrolet after 30 years. It saddens me to see what has happened at the dealership and how Robin and Rick Groth are making the union their scapegoats for all the financial woes of the dealership.
I worked for their dad, uncle, cousin and through the take-over when Bill Groth's widow turned over her ownership to her son and they booted out Robin for a few years until a lot of money got her back in control. In all that time, Groth Bros. was a union shop and we always survived. Even during the previous recession, Robin's dad would always find a way to keep us going.
Through the years, when we would get our raises, we would vote to split the raise and put 50% into our pension fund for the future. That is why the amount was so high. By deciding not to pay the pension, Robin gave the employees a big pay cut and could care less. Her decision not to pay their medical just puts the knife in even deeper. I am sure she is still paying the medical on her female employees. Robin and Rick Groth should look in the mirror and realize that the main cause of the financial hardship is their own lack of ownership knowledge and management skills. It's too easy to blame someone else. Rick has never worked for anyone else and Robin never lasted long at any job while she was exiled from the dealership. Neither knows what it is like to be a real employee and not an employer. My advice to the remaining union employees at Groth Bros. is to move on and find a better place of employment. Groth Bros. wil never be the place it used to be. The dealership that was a great place to work was gone years ago.
I am thankful that, because of the union, I was able to retire after 30 years of employment and do not have to deal with all the turmoil. The best of luck to all of my old union friends back at the dealership"

This letter appeared approx. one week prior to Groth Bros. being shut down by bancrupcy trustee. As I stated earlier, from my experience of working for Groth Bros. 15 years, I find it to be an honest assesment of what has and will continue to occur at Groth Bros.,Groth Chevrolet or whatever name the current loan sharks will allow her 30% interests to conjur up.
In any event, we can all agree that a GREAT LEGACY has been brought to a GREEDY end!
I stand and salute Dick, Bill and Billy Groth for teaching us all that a REAL FAMILY business is worth working for.

Its a shame. The brothers probably worked and scraped and suffered along the way to make things work and build that place to what it was. They probably didn't go on big vacations, and buy huge houses and all the BS that goes with being a yuppie. It was hard work, save your money, reinvest and take care of those who work for you. Now its just about getting that money so you can have the bigger house, and pool, and club membership...
All for what, now a viable business is out, employees are out of work,city does get its tax revenue and suppliers are out of a revenue stream and owed money, and it all goes down the tube.
Now you want a Chevy, you go down the road and buy a Chevy from the gooney-goo-goo who could care less about America...

To just me
Seems we shared some time at groth Bros i to was around at the time Billy Dick and Robin fight .
I know of one epmlyee who was in the Hospital when she stop paying the helth insurance if u can believe it He was not eh only one that happened to i'm sure .It takes me back to happer days reading your comments. Before Robin u would have to agree Groth Bro was a much better place to work .She never understood that the value of your emplyees.
It was the hard work of the lomgtime empoyee that made Groth what it was and # 1 with the costmers remember thoses days? Maybe thats why Dick had all the BBQ'a for us and the custmers we all worked hard for Dick Groth its sad he had to choose one of his kids to take over niether one was up to the job and thats just a crying shame they let her take down Groth Bros Dick didn't teach her how to make any money just spend it .I feel bad for him most now all his hard work down the drane.Letting Billy Groth get away wasn't smart either he was the last one with any car brains left there and they put her in charge i heard he made out pretty good before he got out good for him .Who knows mybe there will be a Chevy dealar in Livermore again .

There are unconfirmed reports that now that Groth Bros shop is empty of techs, there is a odd quietness at night and that at times you can hear a ghostly voice loudly yelling:
RAM IT IN THERE!!!!!!!!

I'm looking foreward to the day when a new Livermore chevorlet opens up in town .
Does anyone have any news on Dick Groth ?
Anyoe seen him talk with him if so leave some news.My fear is he can't be doing good with Roblin looking to get his last dollar before the end this is one sick woman.This would be the time for Ricky to be stepping up do whats right here pal do let your dad down now he's only a check book to her now u know there turth in theves words help him before its to late.It may not be long before he may be staying at your house i'm sure by now Robin has hocked his house by now think i'm wrong go check.She didn't want that power of attrony for nothing .I'm not worng go check .
I know my spelling sucks but u get the message .
And one last thing Robin didn't go bad she was never any good to begin with.Think i was wrong just ask most amyone who worked for her .

Have to agree with Bill X's feelings here. Bashing Robin is easy (and she does deserve it) but we should all be remembering how Dick ran the business and what a great place it was to work and to shop. Groth Bros hasn't been Groth Bros for many years anyway 'bout time the empty shell went away.

I hope that Dick's health is holding up through this. Too bad he had to see his kids suck the place dry.
