Default I am royally pissed now...

I am angry and frustrated. Angry because I was just getting ready to go to Rockford to get another SSEi, but before I knew it, it was sold, and it was still there not 3 days before. I was getting ready and set time off specifically to go down there. Frustrated because I cant find a ******* SSEi in my area at all. Now my mom wants me to get a Cadillac. **** That!

I got a piece of advice for everyone: If you are in the market and you see one on sale, drop everything you have, go and GET IT! Before some schmuck who does not appreciate Bonnevilles as much as you do beats you to the punch and wrecks it.

Thanks for your time, I just needed to get that one off my chest.

See, us impulse shoppers never have that problem.

My usual shopping trip gooes something like:

Oooooo, pretty/shiney/gekky/too cool to pass up....
Do I have the money?
Will The Missus kill me?
Can I hide it from her/do I care if she gets mad?
(On the way home) Should I have really spent $xx.xx on this??



Notice, no where di I ask (prior to purchase) "Do I need this?". Need has nothing to do with want....

Toddster drove over 24 hours to get his latest. That was ONE WAY.

I looked at a black 95 SLE in a salvage yard one day, $350, no UIM. Told him I'd get the money. A week later, car was gone.
