I admit it, I can be a wee bit of a Diva at times :). Not with everything mind you, but I am a "problem" with certain issues. I dropped my car off at the dealership this morning, to deal with the tire and a couple other small things. It was planned to be there for at least a day and because I'm a good, regular customer the salesman arranged for me to have a loaner.
He's got a set of keys in his hand and we are walking across the lot. He seemed to be walking toward something.........ugly. I won't say the model at the risk of possibly offending someone but he's heading toward one of those new "efficient, über-compact" models. I said "you better not be giving me that" - as I point at it mockingly. Yes, he says - its cute. CUTE....... I half expected when he opened the door that 20 clowns might spill out. Seriously !! And you know how I feel about clowns. (Shudder)
At this point I'm laughing. He says "oh get in and see how cute it is. You'll like driving it through town". Now I'm really laughing and I hate to admit but I may have even had my hands on my hips. "I'm not driving this car through town! I'm scared of clowns chasing me!"
My Diva move paid off and he gave up. "Well, what do you want?" he says. I quickly pointed to the nice new big 2013 sedan next to the clown car. Whew, that was a close call. There are a few benefits from loyalty. I've purchased 8 vehicles for this dealership so I can push the Diva card a little once in awhile.
