Boy, Do I Love Trouble

I didn’t do any post Thanksgiving shopping, it was but my small attempt to not acquire anymore debts and pay off my credit card bills. But I think I did worse than shopping. You see, I went to the car dealership (Friday) to ask about their extended warranty on my 2005 Chevy Tahoe LS. But then on the way inside the dealership, my eyes were lured to this new 2008 LTZ, neatly displayed on the revolving table. Needless to say, I dumped the idea of getting an extended warranty and traded my old SUV for a new one instead. Boy, do I love trouble! Let’s just consider this an early holiday present for the family…

    You bad boy you! Ha! Ha! What the heck! BTW . . . what is the color? Is it “black” for “Black Friday?” 😉 Enjoy your brand new spanking ride!! Take care, Nell!

    Nell . . .me again . . . silly me didn’t go on your picture site so of course your new SUV is not black . . . duh! It must be all that pumpkin pie I ate. Ha! Ha!

    hello lulu, thanks for your kind comment. i don’t know what got to me, i guess i was so smitten with this new LTZ since it has everything i love in an SUV. but i was able to haggle my monthly naman, it’s even a couple bucks less of what i was paying for my old car. the 1.99% APR did all the difference. not bad na dba?

    btw, the color is metallic dark blue, it was a BLUE FRIDAY for me. hahahaha! hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving, God bless :mrgreen:

    KEITH: thanks keith! must say that this is one gigantic boy, hahaha. speaking of salesman, our was so pissed that i demanded to deal with the dealership manager. sometime during our negotiation kasi eh he mumbled the words ‘stupid’ and i heard it, kaya inaway ko sya. the manager told him to apologize, and he did naman. but he didn’t get the commission, that i made sure na don nalang sa manager mapunta. grrrrrr! salesman dream pa rin ba yon or nightmare? hahahah. naku sorry hah at napakwento na naman ako. thanks so much for your kind comment and we’ll definitely enjoy our ride. we’re taking ‘maxwell’ out to las vegas couple weeks from now :mrgreen:

    SIS THESS: hello kapatid, my new boy’s name is indeed MAXWELL. macho ng name noh? hahahaha! thanks for sharing my happiness and pain, love yah lots for being such a wonderful sister to me. i’m really trying my best to keep my head above the water, so many issues right now that i just try to ignore. para di mabaliw ang beauty ko noh! di ko yata feel and mental institution, hahaha 😀

    my gosh! alam mo ba we were thinking of trading in our dora (the ford explorer) for the tahoe (either that or the yukon)? sabihin mo sa akin kung kumusta ang performance ha, para maisama sa desisyon hehehe.

    honestly, i am batting for the tahoe hybrid, para makatipid man lang konti sa gas at makatulong sa mother earth. pero zuper expensive kasi. oh well.

    anyway, di ka naman bad boy for getting a new car. actually, since 05 yung previous car mo time na talaga to trade to a new one, di ba? as for the salesguy, bakit naman may “stupid” pa siyang nasabi?? nakakataas ng kilay ha!

  15. rollercoastermom · November 29, 2007

    woohoo! now maxwell sure is sweeeeet!!!! so hindi ka pala nagshopping sa lagay na yan ha? hehehehe! 😛

  16. sardonicnell · November 29, 2007

    MEEYA: this new tahoe ltz is spanking sweet! at least, that’s what my nephew said, hahaha. will keep you posted about the performance, soon as we take maxwell on a long drive to vegas this xmas. wala naman sana nga akong plano to do a trade, but since the warranty on the new one is better. i grabbed the chance na, then almost same lang monthly dues. as for that stupid comment, inaway ko talaga yong rep. paano naman he was giving me the wrong figures, thinking he can outsmart me noh. heller, numero kaya ang agahan at tanghalian ko! then he added some stuff pa in our computation that should come in included with the plan we’re getting. sa inis nya eh sabihin ba raw kami na “this is stupid.” at sa sobrang inis ko sa kanya, nilabasan ko sya ng calculator (he was doing it manually kasi eh) and told him “excuse me, you’re the one that’s stupid!” then i demanded for the manager, and we closed the deal with him instead. kaya belat sya, wala syang commission, sinigawan pa sya ng manager nya and pinag apologize sya sa harap ko. some people, nakaka high blood! ayan, napakwento tuloy ako, hahaha :mrgreen:

    KRIS: thanks for your kind compliment. pero sa totoo lang wala talang me na plano to get a new car. nagandahan lang talaga ako and maxwell has the features i so wanted in an SUV. hehehe! nagrason pa raw ako, hahahaha 😀
