Everyone Likes Funny Stories, Right?

Well these funny stories are about car shopping. Steve's beloved Taupemobile has 220,000 miles on it, and it decided to show its age last weekend. We dropped it off at the dealership, and while it was being diagnosed, we shopped! As we were getting ready to go, the salesman introduced us to his manager, Max. Max asked us a few questions about the Taupemobile, and just as he was saying in the most uncompelling voice, "I'll give you $2,000 for your car. Would this make you happy?" and gesturing with his arm, an enormous, unidentifiable insect flew right into his armpit. Just as he was closing his pitch, he put down his arm, trapping the insect in his armpit, with its freaky long antennae poking out at us. shudder. Now I don't know if this gentleman knew he had just squished a very frightening looking bug in his armpit, or if it was going to eat him, but it was pretty clear to both Steve & I that there would be no more negotiating.

Later that day, we saw a clown driving a red Monte Carlo! That's right, an honest-to-goodness clown.

I think those combined make for no-new-car omens, so we are paying the dealership a pretty penny for an new exhaust downpipe!
