Feeling Violated By A Damned Car Salesperson

Having a second car might be a good idea, now that my car has passed the 100,000 mile mark. I would like a cheap, used car that I can keep on hand in case my regular car has any trouble. I don’t like to feel stranded or dependent on just one car. There is a decent little Toyota for sale. The owner says the only thing wrong is the air conditioning does not work. I would think that is easy enough to get fixed. I looked up the cost of a toyota ac compressor, and it’s not as expensive as I thought it might be.

I’ve been trolling Craigslist for a used car and not having much luck. I was hoping to find something that is a few years old but in good running condition. Most of the cars listed are either big junkers or cars that are so fucked up that the dealerships probably would not give the owner much of a trade in allowance, so they decided to try to get more money for them on their own. Dealerships are notorious for unfair and deceptive selling practices. I’ve tried 3 or 4 times to work with a damned salesperson at a dealership, but I always leave feeling violated and deceived. So I’ve never actually bought a brand new car off a dealer lot in my life. I think the main thing about using a web site like Craigslist to find a car is all about the timing. One day the car you want has not been listed yet, and another day you log in and Voila! There is the car!

Economic Situation Is Totally Fucked Up

Today we toured a manufacturing plant that had been shut down by their home office and put up for sale. The building is fucking huge and was used to mill cotton. Since the southern states produce an incredible amount of cotton, it made sense years ago to locate the mills close to where the raw materials were produced. However, the rising cost of American labor is the reason the company shut down this plant.

One of the big distractions for a new buyer interested in this former cotton mill property is that all the mill equipment was left sitting on the production floor. This shit is massive and had to be incredibly expensive to put into place. It is large, heavy and complicated to configure and maintain. Supposedly there is not much of a market for used equipment like this. It find it strange that the company found it cheaper and easier to buy brand fucking new equipment for the new plant facility they built in Mexico than to break down and move this shit to the new plant. It was easier to just walk away from the existing crap and leave it here for the new owner to deal with disposing of it. Once again, this is an example of how the world’s economic situation is totally fucked up.

 

Went to see Chronicle

That movie was fucking awsome. I wont kill the movie for you but I will give you a little recap. These kids go down this shaft in the ground and find something. When they come out the have these amazing powers and can do all of this stuff. Unfortunately, one of them is psycho and cannot handle the power so goes berzerk and starts killing people. The movie has lots and lots of action, which I love, and is totally amazing. I want to see it again so bad. I know that when it comes out on video, I will definitely be adding it to my collection of awesome flicks.

I am very picky about the movies I buy. There is not a single boring movie in my collection. My friends are always asking to borrow my movies, but I tell them they can watch it at my house, but it cannot leave my house. I used to loan them out, but people wouldn’t return them, so I stopped. I wouldn’t really mind if people would return them, but they cost a lot of money and quite frankly I don’t work to buy stuff for other fucking people. I buy the movies for me.

X-mas shopping

Fuck I hate christmas shopping. I never know what the hell to buy for people. The crowds of people all acting like shit heads to each other and the clerks working in the stores are the worst. I should just buy everything online but then it would never get here in time so I guess I am screwed.

Sew It or Toss It?

I have a jacket that I liked a lot but when I put it on, I found out that the buttons are missing. How the hell can all the buttons go missing off a jacket? I mean, really. How does that happen?

I like the jacket. I know that I didn’t pull off all those fucking buttons and I have no idea where they would be at. So I either have to go to some store and buy a bunch of buttons and sew them on, or I can just toss the jacket and say fuck it.
