Car Shopping

I hate to say stereotypes are prominent but I just had the worst car shopping experience ever at Grieco Honda in Rhode Island.

First, my daughter and I went. I hate to say they treat women differently but they were so rude and condescending from the start.  We asked the sales rep Jermaine to look at a trade in but he wouldn’t even go outside to inspect it. They offered $500 without an inspection on the trade in even though other dealerships offered $1500.

He then lied about not having a Carfax for the car we wanted to purchase. We went home and pulled it up and paid $40 for the Carfax because he wouldn’t and said it didn’t exist. We think the car must have been reported sold because it had never been titled but had no warranty.

We looked at a different dealership but finally thought the Honda Hybrid would be the best deal. When we went back the salesman was rude and wouldn’t even take our credit information. Finally a manager got involved and they did take out credit information but offered high financing to my daughter after lying about her credit score. She monitors it online and they told her a number much lower. It’s like they don’t want to sell cars and this one has been sitting on the lot since 2014.

Horrible customer service. Stay away from this dealership.

Sensational Saturday!

What an excellent way to wake up. Despite the fact the dog jumped on me at 4:30 am and demanded I get up, it’s already been a great day!

You know you want to be scared! And sorry for any typos but it’s just 6 am. I guess I can also say it’s a great day because I’m being productive. Thanks Mia for the early wake up call.

You lie awake at night fearing them. Wondering when they will come for you.
Some nights they leave you in peace. Other nights they dig their claws into your mind, taking you to places of sheer terror and unfathomable horror.
Whether it’s walking through the haunted house while its secrets threaten to keep you prisoner, or staring at the room of mirrors while the deformed faces of circus freaks smile at you with malicious intent—sooner or later you will realize that what you fear most is the evil which waits beneath the surface of your dreams.
So, tonight when you lay your head down to sleep, remember to say your prayers…
Because you might be mere seconds away from entering…
The Carnival of Nightmares.
