Driving home from work yesterday I took an alternate route to stop at Petsmart. I was sitting at a light downtown right next to some car dealership when in the corner of my eye I see something running toward me.
I look to my right, outside the passenger side window, and see this big smiling face and hands motioning me to roll down my window.
Scared the shit out of me.
After the initial shock wore off, I rolled down the passenger side window just a little bit to hear what the guy had to say. He was young, clean cut and nicely dressed so I assumed he worked at the car dealership across the street.
"Hi! I would LOVE to buy your car!" He said enthusiastically.
I just sat there and looked at him for a couple seconds and said,
"How long have you had it?" He asked.
"About three years." I replied
"Yep, it's probably time for you to upgrade." He said this as he looked my car up and down like he was checking out a chick. He was undressing my car with his eyes!I'm surprised he didn't start humping it right then and there.
My car felt violated.
I notice the cars in front of me started moving and I realize the light had turned green. That didn't matter to this guy, he still stood there hanging over my window.
"What's your name?"
"Grand Pooba" I said quickly as I slowly started inching my car forward noticing the long line of cars stuck behind me.
He didn't budge.
"Nice to meet you Grand Pooba, my name is Rick, here's my card, give me a call!" And with that he reached in the window to hand me his card while the car was still inching forward.
He about lost his arm after I grabbed the card and took off!
I looked in my rear view mirror and saw that he was now stuck. This dude was in the middle of the road with cars whizzing by on both sides of him. I turned the corner so I'll never know if he made it back to the safety of his precious car dealership.
For all I know, some impatient driver decided to teach him a lesson and introduced him to the pavement.
Sheesh. I didn't realize the economy was that bad.
My car hasn't been the same since.
