I got my Mercedes from my employer. And no I didn't have to sleep with him to get it. During the worst part of the recession he couldn't afford to give me a raise. My clunker broke down and he gave me the Mercedes and told me not to ask for a raise for at least 3yrs. lol Worked for me. Its a '92 but my employer has OCD so it's in great shape.
When I first got it my son asked if I could meet him at the gas station. When I pulled in he got out of his car, went to my trunk and opened and then reclosed it. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "You had a Dollar General bag hanging out the trunk. Gawd it didn't take you long to redneck up this car did it." LMAO!!!
We're not going to Guam are we?
I test drove my new car today. I'm going to pick it up tomorrow. It's my third straight RED car. lol I asked him to find me a silver one, but it didn't work out. He asked about red and I said why not? lol (IT's actually Sparkling Ruby Red. Dark red with some sparkle.) It's a 2013 Elantra. It's sporty enough, but still a good sedan.
Debb we have a silver 2011 Elantra. Sporty little car. My husband wanted it for his work car because it gets such good gas mileage.
You don't have to attend every argument you are invited to.
