Just Got Myself A Newer Vehicle

With the cost of gas being so much we have been discussing getting a vehicle for the past month.  Some of the companies I work for don’t have any concern for how much gas one can use to get a job done.  We went down to the dealership that we got my wife her car at so that we could get her license plates done for her NEW car.  While there a truck caught my eye.

I spotted a 2006 White Ford F150.  There was nothing wrong with the body at all.  No scratches, or anything at all.  We checked out the engine, and the inside of the truck.  The truck was a single owner vehicle, and only had 46,000 miles.  Knowing how car sales works I told the salesman to go get his best price.  He did, and it was exactly what I thought.

Now that I have the truck I want to make it look a bit more personal to me.  I was thinking of one of those license plate brackets made of silver chains, maybe a windshield visor, and definitelly some rain guards.

When you get a car do you make it a personal thing?

Working At Sony… The Things You Get Asked

I have worked for my own company for over 15 years, and I never got to experience customers the way that I got to while I worked at Sony as a salesperson.  When I worked at Sony I never expected to hear some of the outlandish things that I did hear.  Keep in mind that above our store was a BIG sign with the company name on it.  You expect to hear some questions about a product specification, but the ones that took the cake were:

  • Where are the XBox360 units?

and

On top of that you would always get someone that would come in, and show a flyer for a competitor, and ask if we could beat their price… Meanwhile our price was on a sign showing a lower price than the competitor already was.  Maybe it was me, but an awful lot of people asked the same questions on an almost daily basis.

Have you ever had a really off question get asked to you, and you wonder what tree that person came out from under?
