Complaint about cost of service

This got to me today for a repair to a door...

Two hours of labor at dealer $234
Assume mechanic gets $50/hour $100
Extra dealer profit/overhead $134 134%

If the dealer's overhead is really 134% I need to find some other
place to get the work done. This doesn't include the "shop fee" of $20, so it is actually more than 134%.

I wanted the dealer to do the work for warranty, but I can pay my own way for this cost or learn more on DIY. This work called for a special tool, which I didn't have...of course.
