Good News & other news

Yesterday after a lot of running around, and one horrible dealer experience, I came home with a new car.
Originally, there had been plans to buy a Chevy HHR, but the aforementioned bad dealer experience talked me out of it. So, I decided to go back to my first choice which was the Scion XA - in black (of course). You can see a picture of one here at the Scion gallery.

It's beautiful. And I think her name is Stella.

The shortest version of the long story in bullets.

  • My brother wanted a new car. I wanted a new car. My mother bought mine, and with Matt's help, I bought a brand new one.

  • We went to the Jay Wolfe Chevy dealership with a friends and family discount. Stupid salesman. Even stupider Manager.

  • General Manager of said Chevy dealership lets a service guy drive a brand new HHR backwards into the showroom, a hairs breath away from a $60k cherry red corvette.

  • Stupid manager gets on our nerves, we leave. Less than a block away, we arrive at the Roger Smith and Sons Toyota dealership

  • Nice guy, no hassle, no haggle. I get a new car. Brother gets old car. Everyone is happy.



I may have a longer version later, but it'll be much later. There's a lot going on right now. We had a guy suspended at work today without pay, for a reason no one can share. Even weirder is that he's not even allowed near the building without someone calling security and our manager.

My grandfather (mom's dad) just got out of the hospital with a irregular heart beat. Apparently his heart was beating too fast, but not fast enough for his defibulator to slow it down. They opted not to do the surgery since it can be dangerous and sent him home with medication. Hopefully he won't have any more episodes.

And to top it off, this week is our departments "All Hands" meetings, so I'll be in conferences the next two days from 7:30AM to 5:00PM, and then dinner with the group, both nights. No free time, no work time, just meetings and crap. Not fun. Hopefully I'll be able to get some writing done during the meetings, but I'm not really thinking that's going to happen. We'll see.
