Just had the pleasure of telling a car dealer, they didn't get the sale because of FAUX News
Edited on Wed Sep-22-10 10:01 AM by mod mom
Last night we purchased our second Prius. The first one was purchased from a Toyota Dealer based on availability (in '06 you had to wait for a Prius). When I have had my car serviced at this dealer, they have FOX News on their TV in the customer waiting room. I have complained to a desk clerk and the set was changed to CNN. First time it happened, shortly after the change a manager came by and asked "why was the station changed?" She were told it was because a customer complained. I smiled at the angered manager. The next and final time I went to have my car serviced their I found FOX on again.
This time we shopped around based on models with options. Two dealers about the same distance from us had the model available. The dealer we purchased our 1st Prius from came in close to $100 cheaper than another dealer, when they heard we were negotiating with a competitor. We went with the slightly more expensive car because of the airing of FOX News. I just received great pleasure in informing the salesman who just called from the FOX airing dealership that we purchased our car from his competitor and that although it was slightly more expensive, it was their airing of FOX News that lost them the deal. I asked him to please pass this information on to his management. I told him we were insulted that they would air a station which such disregard for the truth. I told him I was passing this on to my Prius loving friends (many of our friends drive Priuses).Voted hottest "chick" at CU - My hotness transcends gender

She shopped around and essentially paid $100 bucks for the pleasure of telling off a car dealer who instantly forgot her within 5 minutes of having the conversation. Well, that's the American Way.
If she was a normal person and read a book or worked online in waiting rooms, she'd never even know what channel the TV was on.

What a pant load...
mod mom owes bongs for this crapGovernment is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

50. "rationalization". (Same logic applies to you and your worth, btw.)
You're a LOT less eco-friendly than a worker in India or China, for example.
In their defense though, I will say that Ford certainly got their act together. Their cars (I don't know about trucks) used to score pretty low on the Consumer Report rating for reliability, but the 07-09 models score near the top.

41. So it's "Union for me, not for Thee?"
Edited on Wed Sep-22-10 02:52 PM by msanthrope
if the irony of buying a non-union car on Labor Day escapes you, then how about this--
You constantly and consistently post on this forum regarding your precious teacher's union--and how parents' and politicians' support of charters is undermining unions...
You seem to hold yourself exempt from supporting unions when your livelihood is not at stake--apparently your consumer purchases get a pass, but parents, who are entrusted with getting their kids a good education should bow down and entrust what is most dear to them--their children--to union members.
If you cannot trust a union product, then how can you expect parents to do so?
Thanks for finding this one.

The dickhead paid $100 more for a crappy Prius just because the original dealer had FNC on the TV.

I gotta question why the idiot was shopping for a new piece of crap car only two years after they bought their frist piece of crap.
The post was hard to take seriously for the simple grammar errors and usage errors. I'm going with 7th grade mentality for "Piece Of Crap" driver.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
