In case you don't know, my husband always has these crazy ideas running around through his head. The other night he thought, it be cool if we got an old school Chevy Beretta to save on miles on the truck. You see, the hubby and I each had a Beretta in high school. That was many moons ago and we were just friends. We even traded Berettas once for a day or so.
So, Matt's on his computer googling away looking for a Beretta. Although, he and I both knew there was absolutely no way we were getting one. Well I knew. He should have known.
He found one in the town he does drill in. To see all the info about the car you have to give them your email address and phone number. He did. He also put that it would be best to be contacted by email.
The next day he starts getting text messages from some asswipe at the dealership. They text back and forth. I guess Matt told him that he would be in this town for drill over the weekend. Matt said he wouldn't pay more than $1000 for it. The guy said there was no way that they could sell it for that price. Matt politely told him sorry we couldn't make a deal.
Then over the weekend while Matt was at drill, the asswipe starts texting him again. From what I gather, Matt was nice at first and again told him sorry that they couldn't make a deal. The guy keeps texting him. Matt told him, "Times must be tough if you are blowing up someone's phone over a $1500 car that's junk." (Apparently Matt drove by and looked at it and it was junk.)
The asswipe texts him back and says, "Times must be tough when you have to be 10% of a soldier."
At first Matt wanted to go find this asswipe and kick his ass. But he always calms down fairly easy. By the time he told me about it, he was over it.
This really pissed me off. Yes, my husband is in the Reserves now. But he is 5 times the soldier of anyone in his new unit. We won't even go there. He was deployed for 15 months and we were apart the first 9 months that we were married. He's made plenty of sacrifices. He's received more awards and ribbons than I can fit on scholarship, auxiliary, ect. applications. He did his thing. Now we are trying to move on. For someone to try to belittle my husband like that really gets under my skin.
I was going to call the dealership and talk to some kind of manager and tell them what went down. Matt told me not to. I call anyway and got the sales managers voice mail. I didn't leave a message and I didn't call back. I bought a car at this dealership before but I will NEVER buy another one there.
What do you think?
