Yes....a giveaway but first....
The eagle has landed
The fox is in the henhouse
It's hammer time
We bought a car.
And it was as painful as I thought it would be.
We were forced when my husband called me Friday night to come pick him up after the car would not start. Well it's over right? Not going to spend 2500.00 on a car that is worth 1500.00 right?
So we started researching on Saturday morning and decide to go test drive a Kia Optima and Nissan Altima. That was our price point.
Now I am not going to bore you with all that happened..... except to say that after test driving the Optima [which is a nice car by the way] we felt like we were in something the size of a Smart car. So we decided to test the Kia Cadenza. It is kind of the Lexus for "wannabes".
Which we are so not..... but we are cheap.
After sitting in the room for about 30 minutes while "creepy salesman" fumbled around talking about options I finally said "how much buckwheat?"
He asked us if we had an hour and I said "no [after kicking my husband under the table] we have 15 minutes". So he left and came back with some ridiculous number that made me look at him like he had the biggest baddest booger hanging out of his nose.
Really....that's your best shot.... as I said....."thank you....we are going home to research". Good luck selling a car today dipwad.
We get in the car and my husband said "how much time are we going to spend researching Sherry?".
My answer: "you might have to rent a car before this is over".
Big sigh. Rethinking marrying me.
Here is where it gets good and a little crazy.
I decided to look on Carmax [even though 2014 is the first year Kia has made this car] and bing flipping go I found one car in Georgia about 30 minutes away. A demo I assumed tricked out to the fullest for 8,000.00 less [3,800 miles].
WTF.....I read that to my husband so loud his hair and lips peeled back like he had just had the shock of 15 g's on his face.
Oh yeah he was excited now. Let's go.
"My wife is the best".
So we jump in the car....[it's 7:45 pm] and we are halfway there when I say "did you bring the checkbook?" No....[my head snaps back cause I'm pretty hungry and tired by this stage and in no mood for silliness] we will just put it on a credit card.
It was my turn to scream again. Think Nancy Kerrigan "whyyyyyyy meeeeeee".
Fast forward. Of course they don't take cc's and I saved the day cause I happen to have my SHD's checkbook with me.
Or you would have been reading "woman beats husband senseless at Carmax"....story at 11.
