stupid salesman comments
we have all dealt with them, and all bitch about them occasionally (however, mcinerney ford seem to employ decent guys...) but car salesmen often have a strange take on the english and reality in general. their ability to twist logic and words is unique. not always something to be proud of, but always entertaining.
when i was looking for a shade of yellow for the RS, i pulled up to the yard in an XR6. the girl then proceeds to tell me the accent is a 'very powerful car'. :s6: sometimes i dont mean to laugh in peoples faces, but i couldnt help it. if you are reading this post...nothing personal:s2:
just before we bought the au3 xr6, i looked at a subaru liberty. nice looking, great reputation...but the seats look like they are covered in terry towelling! WTF?? so i told the salesman...i apologise to you too....
a few years ago i had a salesman point out a "very sporting car for a sporting young man like yourself". it was asigma GSR. without thinking, i informed him that it still was not as wuick as a 2 litre escort. he told me he would be "just over here if you need any help". sorry mate.
also had one lot try the classic "only got a couple of these left and when they go, thats it" line on me. my wife and i just smiled, politely made our excuses and left. when we got in the car, we pissed ourselves laughing.
but my favourite...looked at a charade about 12 years ago for the missus and got a price from one yard. went to another and their price was $500 higher. it started to rain, and these TWO clowns (dressed up like stockbrokers...LOL) invited me in for a coffee. hey said, they could possibly take $100 off their price. i said no. they said maybe, no promises, but maybe, they could take $200. i said no. they then said "so you wont step into the office for $200?" i just looked at them and left. they couldnt work out that i was still out of pocket with them, and i didnt like them!.
You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
