day, an elderly woman was walking along the street, coming home
from the supermarket. Her bag of groceries was especially heavy
that day, and as she passed Nathan Hale's Used Cars, she got an
idea that she could drive herself to the store and save a lot
of shoe leather, time and aching muscles. She walks into the car
dealership and, as it just so happens, gets the owner himself.
He asks her what kind of car she wants and she replies,
sonny, I can't remember the name exactly, but it has something
to do with hate or anger."
owner replies, "Well, let's see... Oh yes, you want a Plymouth
Fury! We have a couple on the lot. What color do you prefer?"
lady has some trouble explaining the exact color to him, so she
reaches into her shopping bag, takes out an ear of corn, strips
down the shucks and says, "I want this color sonny."
which Nathan replies, "Ma'am I'm sorry, but we don't have
any in this color. Could I show you a nice blue one?"
son, I want this color."
ma'am, they didn't make that color! Maybe a cherry red one would
suit you?" says the owner, obviously worried about losing
this time, the old lady gets mad, and starts throwing things at
the owner, thereby chasing him out of the office and into the
lot. One of the salesmen, coming into the office from the back
door, notices the disruption and asks the secretary what the old
woman was so upset about.
secretary replies, "Apparently, Hale hath no Fury like the
in a car dealership office: "The best way to get back on
your feet - miss a car payment."
I went to a couple of car dealerships last week, and the first
one I stopped at was Kia, well nothing caught my eye, but the
price was right, then I went to a Ford dealer, again nothing really
caught my eye, but I looked anyway, then I go to the Chevy dealer,
well I see one that I like, the dealer does the once over with
me, then he pops the trunk, disapointed, I looked at the dealer
and said, "Well, Theres something missing" the dealer
,puzzled asks "What"? I said "at the ford dealership
I checked out, they had a new pair of shoes in the trunk of every
car"! Smiling the dealer says "Thats so they can walk
was in a car dealership a while ago, when a large motor home was
towed into the garage. The front of the vehicle was in dire need
of repair and the whole thing generally looked like an extra in
the film "Twister". I asked the manager what had happened.
He told me that the driver had set the"cruise control"
and then went in the back to make a sandwich.
