Hello. I grew curiouser and curiouser about the "blowing me off" issue in the following sentence. What does it mean?
"The new tire was 'almost' the same, except the old one was a '65 and the new one was a '70 series (taller profile). I complained about pulling during acceleration, but the dealer kept blowing me off."
(Whenever I think about how that wheel-aligner guy changed my original Pirelli front tires for "pre-owned" Goodyear Kelly tires and how, after the alignment, my car kept pulling to the left and how the repair shop owner never returned my irate phone call, I kept having bouts of mistrust, I kept having second thoughts about these spare parts changing repair shops which also function as wheel aligners and which overcharge you for badly made repairs. Also, I kept having second thoughts about writing a paragraph this long.)
