New TOYota

Introducing the newest addition to our household.....
This is Josh's new baby. He has been needing/wanting a truck for a long time now and we were finally able to get him one. The seats in his old car were irritating his already bad back and he needed something with a bigger seat and higher up. We were also always borrowing our neighbor's truck to make our runs to home depot etc, so we figured a truck would be a good thing to have around.

We spent a lot of time looking for the right truck, with the right price. And then on Saturday morning we drove around to several dealerships to see what they had to offer. Ughhhh car sales men/managers are some of my least favorite people out there. (I know there are a few good ones out there, but not very many!) We ended up finding this truck and went into price negotiations with them for it.

Out of Josh and I, I'm the outspoken one when it comes to price negotiations. And so I was the one telling the managers what we were Not going to pay, and what we were going to. After several hours of them going back and forth and talking to me like I was a stupid little girl, I had had enough. I told the big annoying 3rd manager they had sent out, to stop calling me "Darling" and that we were going to pay our price or nothing. I got up to leave, put my jacket on and was ready to get the heck out of there..... that's when they finally decided to give us what we wanted.


I guess it was all worth it because we walked out of there with the keys to this truck and a happy hubby.

Good for you. I would never be able to do that. I don't like confrontations much.
