How NOT to sell me a car

Scene:

Veronica Corningstone and Ron Burgundy are standing in a car lot, looking at a new car.

 

Salesman, speedwalking toward them and from 15 feet away yells, "Any day now, right?"

VC: Indifferent Huh?

Salesman,  gestures toward pregnant belly:  Any day now, right?

VC: Um no, not at all.  Hmm

 

Seriously?  I know there are twins in there but dang, I don't look 40 weeks yet..I don't think...

    This math makes more sense than the math POF got yesterday.

    There you go with the mad math skillz.  I guess that's why I'm letting DH do all the negotiating!

    Veronica, darlin', I really hope you dropkicked him....did you???

    One thing is to ask if you're expecting.  A totally different thing is assume one is further along.

    bolded section says it all. They don't have a clue what 20 weeks looks like or 40 weeks.

    If he can't come up with something more original, then...oh wait, he's a car salesman.

    This was my first thought too.

    No, a poster shared facebook pictures of her posing in a bikini in front of a Honda. You can imagine what happened, lol.

    Now that is funny. 

    When we bought DH's truck a few years ago I gave the salesman instruction on how to shake a womens hand. He gave me the limp fish shake, which drives me crazy. Unless you are WAAAAYYYY overzealous in the hand shaking department you will not break my hand, I am not (and most women I know are not) delicate flowers that require a wimpy hand shake.

    Giving me a wimpy handshake gives me the impression that you are weak, and I will bulldoze you on negotiation.

    Oh my word.   I could see how the title of my post would totally relate, though.
