Hello, it's me
I've thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much but something's wrong

So my plan didn't work as I had intended.
Last week's blog detailed my idea to contact a car dealership that wanted to purchase my auto, which is six-year-old baby with low, low miles on her.
The company said, via a letter, that they really, REALLY wanted my car because their inventory was so low.
(So why don't they just make more cars?)
Anyway I had schemed a deal to parlay my beautiful current car into a beautiful NEW car.
My concept was to provide a Blue Book figure for my car while submitting a low, non-negotiable figure that I would pay for a current model.
Did receive a call from one salesperson who asked me what options were important for my new auto.
Air conditioning, I said. (Smart one, Eric.)
Via email, I later submitted my low offer for a new car to another dealership.
The response? Crickets.
I think I may have just out-smarted myself.
