I dropped her off at 8am yesterday morning. The Ford bodyshop that I'm having her done at is half a dealership as well, and all the bored salesmen were trying to get me to buy yet ANOTHER car. Ontop of asking me all sorts of questions about Ellie, how long I've had her, what's been done to it, how I've kept it in such good condition, ect ect. Enterprise was supposed to be picking me up in 10 minutes to get me a rental car. It took them almost an hour. Once I got there, the reservation number for my rental wasn't working - so we tried calling the insurance lady back. She didn't answer her phone for almost an hour and a half. Meanwhile, all the decent cars were being rented out.. It looked like I was going to be stuck with an Aveo or something stupid like that. So, 11:00 rolls around and we finally get around to picking me out a car. For the next four days I'm the [not so] proud owner of a 2008 Mitsubishi Galant.
When I was asking them what sort of car I'd end up with, they said "Oh, we try to get you something comparable to what you have in the shop." I looked the dude straight in the eye and said "I can promise you that nothing you have on this lot is comparable to the car I have in the shop right now."
