An Open Letter to the Salesman at the Honda Dealership

Dear Salesman,

After not introducing yourself and making the people to whom you are potentially going to sell a car wander around behind you in the lot for 10 minutes in 5 degree F weather while you figure out your inventory (which you could have done inside on the computer), you are probably not going to sell a car to those people. That "probably" will become a "definitely" when you have been talking exclusively to the female half of the couple about cars and you come back with the keys for the test drive and *hand them to the male half of the couple without asking who is going to drive.* Trust me on this one.

Quick - someone get Beowulf...

Grendel said...

Lol. :)
(I am, of course kidding, just in case that wasn't apparent. . .)

Man, that ranks up there with the paint-spattered guy who ordered about 10 Mercedes from a coworker of mom's after the 1st salesman gave him up bc of his appearance. Wow, some people are DUMB!

Whit said...

I knew you were kidding, but I'm still calling in Beowulf. My inner Gloria Steinem must be appeased ;)

Whit said...

SWMBO - Apparently you've finally found a topic that generates as much buzz as the antics of ER. :)

Pretty much. And the thing is, if MEL had been primarily talking to him, I would have had no problem with it. We still probably wouldn't have bought a car from him, but I wouldn't have actually been offended.

Tori said...

::snicker:: Wow, I wonder how that guy got a job there in the first place, or if he ever actually sells anything!

Grendel said...

Hmm. Well, I've got a fish (or a bicycle) for the inner Ms. Steinen. . .

*ducks, runs and hides*
