I've noticed that. I wonder why. It's so simple and the parts are cheap. I think they are just banking on the fact that people don't know how it works.

I said professionally because I never seem to bleed them right. I've bleed my brakes 3 times since I've had the truck (first was after front pads, second was after rear shoes, and third was when I swapped my axle) and I have yet to get them right the first time around. Maybe due to lack of experience.
It sounded like he was tired of dealing with the issue and since he had already taken the truck to have the brakes done, which can also be done in ones driveway with minimal toolage, I thought it pertained better to him if I said to have someone else do it.
