Status of the New Hoop d'Ville

At the Place That Sells Cars (and Won't Negotiate) on base, I have been dealing with 2 salesmen, much like the Good Cop/Bad Cop scenario. There is Bob the Boob (Bad Cop) and Jeremy the Gigolo (Good Cop).

Monday, the Boob traveled to another base near the Airport to drive the car back here instead of loading it on the train, which would have taken almost 2 days. I took P to see it after Day Care, and she was a tad upset that it wasn't red~I refuse to own a red car~but she was overall happy.

The Boob calculated one of the discounts using the total price of the vehicle, when he should have deducted the overseas shipping amount first. The Gigolo was forced to play the Good Cop and clean up the $196 mess (the discount was too much) the Head Office wanted the entire vehicle refinanced to account for the 'missing' $196. Wednesday, I offered to buy them lunch if they just let me give them the $196, so I wouldn't have to wait an additional 5 days since the contract needed to be resubmitted. The initial response was that they couldn't take the money from me, but it had to be refinanced.

Thursday, the Credit Union said they wouldn't waste the manpower just to refinance $196, so I was able to give the Boob the funds to cover HIS mistake. The Gigolo submitted all the documentation, and now I'm just waiting for the final contract from the Head Office and the funds to change hands between the Powers That Be.

I will get the keys about a week, once the contract is complete, and the Credit Union legally has me in it's Grips of Debt. This means we should be in the new Hoop d'Ville between next Friday and Monday~just in time for a road trip over Labor Day weekend.

Hmmm...where should we go?? Any suggestions?
