Of course I’m talking about cars.
I was in the market for a new car because my 9-year-old red Mazda3 hatchback with a manual shift was behaving very naughtily. She drank oil like it was water, chugged, puffed, hesitated and, in the end, needed a new engine.
I went here and there looking for someone to take her place. I have been driving a red standard shift car for at least the last 21 years. I was ready for a change.
After doing a bit of internet shopping on yahooauto.com at the suggestion of a co-worker, I headed out after work to look for a used car with a hatchback.
I had spotted a 2014 Chevrolet Sonic online at Enterprise Car Sales.
I asked if there were any other hatchbacks on the lot and there were 2: one aqua blue with black interior and the other royal blue with light grey interior. Both were 2015 Nissan Versa Notes.
I picked the royal blue one. Automatic she is.
I had a good although long experience of waiting until they valued my trade-in.
I signed my name about 20 times.
Then at about 9:15 p.m. I headed home in my new blue-mobile.
Woo-hoo! Another item checked off the to-do list.
Why does it take so long to buy cars? We didn’t haggle over price. I didn’t need financing. I don’t get it.
I was not paid nor perked for this post.
