the ultimate car salesman - a funny story
Last week I met the ultimate car salesman. You know what car salesman are like. Nuclear war could break out, and they would still be trying to sell you a car. Well, this guy was so focused on clinching a sale I honestly think nothing short of an atomic bomb would have distracted him from selling cars.
Anyhow, me and the wife went to a car lot and a vw polo caught our eye. It was the cheapest car on the forecourt. The salesman said "Get in there and start her up." Well , I got in and put my foot down and crashed straight into a car worth 15k. Completely smashed the two doors. My wife later told me somehow I hit two other cars as well. I just didn't realise the cars are left in gear.
I put my head in my hands and there was a spooky silence. Then the salesman taps me on the shoulder and says " Are you all right mate...... to be fair accidents happen and to be fair the polo hasn't come out of this too badly". Then I noticed he was limping as he said," shall I get the log book... just two careful owners." I said "have I just run over your foot?" He whimpered "yeh, you did and it is throbbing a bit , but to be fair, I have had worse injuries playing football."
It wasn't until I got home that the humour of the event hit me . How many "always look on the bright side of life books " had this guy digested. Did we buy the car ? Well, to be fair why should I buy an accident damaged car?
