July Theme Of The Month: Great Timing!

This Car Is Past Its Break-in Period

| New Jersey, USA | Top, Wild & Unruly

(I am a customer in a used car dealership looking to trade in my car. Another customer has been looking at my car for a few minutes.)

Customer, to salesman: “Can I test drive that green Saturn at the end of the lot?”

Salesman: “That’s a customer’s car. We don’t own it.”

Customer: “Okay. Can I test drive it?”

Salesman: “No.”

(I’m standing close by, laughing at the whole conversation, when my dad comes to tell me he found a nice car in my price-range, so we go to look at it. Five minutes later, I go back to my car to see the same woman trying to pry the window down.)

Me: “Excuse me, what are you doing?”

Customer: “I want to test drive this car, but the salesman refuses to give me the keys!”

Me: “That’s my car. I own it.”

Customer: “Oh. I thought he was just saying that to spite me.”
