[DMCForum] Re: The power of a DMC



Awsome stories! You're the kind of customers that I used to root for
at the dealership. The sales reps. and managers hated your kind but
for us small desposable minions we loved your kind.

After the salesman saw my car he tried to raise the price but I
reminded him of what he told me when I rode with my buddy in his 93
s-10. That is what I like about working at a dealership for 2.5
years, I know when they are pulling a bs on me. I get kicked off of
lots alot but it's funny. I looked at a 59 Edsel and was asked to
leave b/c they didn't give me a price that fit the car. Then Katrina
hit and gas went threw the roof. lol
