He Auto Listen Better

| USA | Working | January 3, 2013

(Years ago, I was shopping for a car with my older boyfriend. He hadn’t said much since it was my purchase. Note: we walked in holding hands and being obviously affectionate.)

Me: “I’m looking for a smaller 5-speed car… maybe a Toyota.”

Sales Guy: “Well, we have this great car here.”

(It was a huge 4-door automatic sedan.)

Me: “That’s not what I’m looking for. I don’t want an automatic. I want a 5-speed manual, and something smaller and a little sportier.”

Sales Guy: “I’m not sure we have what you are want.” *to my boyfriend* “Sir, if you would just teach your daughter to drive a stick, she’d have a lot more choices.”

(Surprised, my boyfriend says nothing, but backs up a step or two.)

Me: “First off, he’s not my father; I wouldn’t be that affectionate with him! Second, you haven’t heard a word I said. So, you lose a sale!”
