Truth, Moral, Facts, Karma.

Hi to all my blog followers,

I now update my twitter account more than I do the blog so please take a look and follow us on twitter our name is @acar2go, I find that you can update it quicker because they only give you 140 characters, more a memo than a proper update!

We are absolutely having it away at the moment, June is shaping up to be our best month ever, at the time of writing this blog update we are on 46 sales, I think that my belief in Karma guides me well as you get what you give and I only ever try to give good.

Hers's a Funny, True and moralistic story for you, maybe it will help to open your eyes to the retail motor trade.

A guy came into our office with a rather ignorant friend who was a pretend mechanic, we knew this because when he looked under the bonnet he didn't have a clue, couldn't even find the dipstick to check the oil!

He then test drove the car and told me that the clutch had only 6 months wear left in it and that if I reduced my price by £1,000 then he would recommend his friend to take it, I asked him where his clutch crystal ball was as I couldn't see where he had put it.

After a further 10 minutes of telling me what a load of cowboys us motor traders are, with no eye contact from start to finish, I asked them to tell me what I was pointing at, they both looked around and said the door, that was the only thing they got right, I walked around from my desk and asked them politely to leave and never to return.

The Truth: It was obvious to me they were punching way above their weight and that they couldn't afford my car!

The Moral: If they had been nice, courteous and respectful, I would probably have done something for them.

The Facts: We are all Ladies and Gentlemen serving Ladies and Gentlemen, we all come in the same way and we will all be going out the same way and in between we all breathe the same air!

Karma: What goes around comes around, you reap what you sow, treat others as you would like to be treated yourself!

Off my soapbox now; As a footnote I sold the car in question to an extremely nice Dubliner and his wife they absolutely love it and there is no problem with the clutch..
