Sometimes I do dumb things!! Yeah I know you all were thinking I was perfect right??!! Well right??? Okay stop shaking your head at that one, I do dumb things alot of times.
I have the “new car” bug and oh let me tell you, I have it bad for some reason and don’t know why. My car is perfect, low miles, has all I need and the best part it’s paid for!!!! So what is wrong with me??? Well we had best not get into that, there’s tons wrong!!!!
The other morning I was sitting here sucking down my morning coffee and I built a nice beautiful blue Dodge Caravan. Yes I know a mini van, but I do need one with mama and her wheelchair. So mmm not a “soccer mom” anymore but a “goldie oldie mobile.” Anyway it had everything in it from air control seats, swivel stow and go seating, gps, double dvd system, multi cd system all power just top notch. I put in my colors, interior and exterior just built in all that I wanted and I actually hit the submit tab!! Yep I did!!! Then I went to Kelly Blue Book and got the trade in value of my car, not bad I guess $10,800. So my figuring years, finance etc I came up with a pay’t of like $300 per month for a beautiful 2008 Goldie Oldie Mobile!!! Not bad, we can do that.
I tell you within 15 minutes my phone rang, yeah the local Dodge dealer all pumped just knowing he has a sale and his commission is there, no doubt even called his wife telling here “We are going to Disneyland” Yeah but little did he know it was me he was dealing with. I for one don’t NEED a new car, mine is paid for, and most of all I don’t play their games of “let me check with my manager” routine etc. So I told him what I want my pay’t to be yadda yadda. He calls me back and tells me a; because I want the blue one, I have to add this feature which is another few thousand, b; I want the double dvd’s so have to have this also and c; say we will give you $8000 for your van because Chevy no longer makes them. YEAH and that would make you give me less than blue book, just so you can triple the price when you sell it and make a total killing off me. Then he drops the bomb and your pay’t is ONLY $424 per month !!!! WTF mister did you not hear me tell you, $300??? So I said to him, um no thanks, don’t want that high pay’t and I want more for my van. Then I get the ol song and dance, well let me do some figuring, get with my boss ( ugh see he totally blew that sale) and get back to you. Also think of dropping a few of the luxuries you wanted in the van. Are you nuts mister?? I want what I want and ALL of what I want. He calls back, yeah with no dvd and a black van, no dual temp control guess what your pay’t is not going to be $397!!!! I not so politely told him what he could do with that deal in a hurry.
I get home yesterday to a message from him on my machine telling me he “talked to his boss” and they so want to get me into the vehicle I want, Oh damn those words must be part of their schooling, I swear they all say that. But I never returned his call.
In the meantime I didn’t know but hubby applied for a personal loan through our bank only did it for the shortest amt of time possibe. Haha they call and say “your twenty thousand dollar loans has been approved, just come down and we will get your check etc” WHAT???!!! I was like um, well let me talk this over with my husband and I will call you back. Uh yeah thanks but no thanks, and hubby you are not forever banned from your computer!!!!! The shortest amount of time to re-pay equals tons of cash each month, no thanks!!
So all this crap has so cured me of my new car fever!!! I so don’t want to go from no car pay’t to one over $400 per month. No thank you. It was fun while it lasted but I look out at my lil Goldie Oldie Mobile and yep I am content to keep her going as long as I can. It’s okay it’s a 2004 with 39 thousand miles on it, so she can outlast me and yep the price is right!!!!
That was my entertainment for the last few days. See anything to stop from thinking about Bryce and is “wrong decision” hahaha
