But I think that post is going to have to wait. Why?
BECAUSE THE FUCKING DEALERSHIP CALLED ME THIS MORNING TO TELL ME THEY HAD SOLD THE CAR I WANTED, EVEN THOUGH, I HAD IT ON HOLD.
Son. Of. A. Bitch.
Apparently the owner didn't honor the car salesman code and went and sold the car Saturday night. When my salesman came into work and found out, he had the happy job of telling me that my car, which I was all ready to purchase today, was sold out from underneath me.
To all the salesmen out there - That is not how you do business. It is never good to piss off a potential customer. It is even worse to piss off a potential customer with a blog and a somewhat decent following.
But I will take the high road and not bash the dealership - why? Because they are still looking for a car for me. So if they find me some amazing car that is in my price range they may be forgiven. If not, then check back here in a few days and find out where you shouldn't buy a car if you live in Chicago.

Sorry about the foul language. I have been in a mood all day. Even a Jimmy John's lunch and the offer of a stapler to throw haven't made me feel better.
Oh, and did I mention a co-worker who doesn't even read my blog showed up in a brown shirt today?
