So after driving around all day in this beautiful 2011 Chevy Traverse, we were convinced that we had found the car we wanted. Everyone at Giant Automotive was excellent and professional, but they had not been properly trained for the "Sean Show" aka "The Negotiator"! After about an hour going back and forth and hearing from them that "This is the lowest we can go", I convinced them not only to give us the price we wanted but also to give me money for the lovely Jetta! What they don't realize is that I was willing to pay them to take the Jetta from me so I wouldn't have to look at that car anymore. And if you have never seen the Jetta, trust me when I say that you would have a better chance of selling home insurance to a homeless man than you would of selling the Jetta for actual currency.
At this point in the negotition I had realized that these people had no chance of salvaging a profit margin and that they were getting worried that I might walk out of there with a straight up trade (2000 Jetta for 2011 Corvette), so I made them upgrade our car to leather seats too! Needless to say, I'm pretty proud of myself (if you haven't gathered that yet......YOU SHOULD BE A CAR SALESMAN!) and the deal we received but in all seriousness, I'm most happy about having a car for Rochelle and Baby Daly that they will feel safe and secure in!
PS- "The Daly Mobile" was what our old Ford Aerostar Van was called, so that's an inside joke between my sister and Mom, and UNCLE JIM!
PSS- I'm sorry but my excitement in this blog sometimes manifests into the form of using way too many "Quotation Marks" and !!Exclamation Points!!!
