1badsho Posted April 20, 2007 Report Share Posted April 20, 2007 Need to set my frame of mind up for everyone cuz i was pissed and upset : As most of you know, I work for a Ford store and had a customer that a salesman took literlally 12 hours to close over 3 days. Cash deal. I was going over the paperwork and told the customer there was a $100 deductible on there extended warranty and customer went ballastic. Literally ballistic ... Have done the same presentation 1000 of times ... but they got real ulgy. ranting and raving .. all sorta of bad stuff. Everyone at the store knew they were a bit flaky but ... wow ... havent seen anything like this. So I am real upset .. not for what I said .. I had said nothing wrong nor presented anything wrong ... but for not being able to calm the customer down and almost blowing a deal for the salesman who I know real well. GOT TO BLOW SOME STEAM OFF ... so i get in my shelby .... go to the local 7/11 and get a pop. I get out and head back to the store .. some one is going real slow to my right .. guy in front of me is going slow in front of me .. so i just goosed it ... a little ... and at about 618 crank hp .. doesnt take much to get up to 75 .. whiiiiiiiiccccccccccchhhhhhhhhhhhhh is what the state trooper clocked me at ( 45 zone ) I never saw him .. must have been behind me .. took him for ever to catch me ... I thought he was after someone else .. not so ..... and he pulls me over. I have the windows down .. put both hands on the steering wheel ( wife whos a cop tells me to do this) and give him my registration .. which has Dept of Corrections on it. He asks about Dept of Corr on the reg. and I explain that my wifey being in law enforcement for 25 years .... blah blah blah. He goes back to his car .. comes back and says he is going to to give me a break .. will give me a ticket for failure to compy with a traffic device ... its 3 pts and a $100 fine vs the speeding ticket $400 and more points i think for that speed. I am not arguing ... he says you can take the drivers ed course .... and remove the points .. And out of the blue .. i just happen to mention .. that "ya .. my wife also teachs DUI level II courses .... in the evenings .. for side money .. and is one of the safety councils best instructors" ... Now i said this not to get out of anything .. we were just talking for i thought i was already cooked ... but i saw his eyebrows raise .... and he goes "Oh really ?" I see him thinking now .. and than he says .. u know don .. this is your lucky day .. i will let u off .... just be careful with this car .. i would die for it. Generally ... Florida State Toopers arent too lienant ... this guy was cool .. doing his business .... and I got lucky .. even with my get out of jail card ! But .. and rightful so .. If he pulls me over again .. no second chances with him. Hmmmm ... think I will have to find him and offer him if he would like to drive my car ..... and become buddy buddy with him !
