Waiting for a new car

We went to a dealership on Saturday and arranged to get a new car. It was almost painless. But......they did not have one in the color we wanted. But....they expected it to come in on Monday.

Monday came ...... no car.
Tuesday came ...... no car.
I called the salesman and said what is the deal? He said it was in Portland but had not been loaded on a transport yet.
I offered to go get it. He did not think the Longshoremen would allow that.
Wednesday came .... no car.

How many longshoremen does it take to unload a red car? 27, do you have a problem with that??!!??!!

Maybe tomorrow

Buying a car

I don't like to shop for a new car. It is intimidating and I always feel that I am going to have a great hastle. Getting on line helps a little but whenever you do any kind of inquiry, you need to identify yourself and then get on a ton of emailings.

My wife and I went to a place that seemed to be the least "in your face" on the website and it was a very nice experience. We did not drive away with a car but my wife and I are still talking to each other.

The car we want won't be here until next week. It's red.

More to come.....
