I told this to a friend and he laughed..
Thought I'd share it and post it here too.
I was a NOOB a year ago:
So, about a year ago I decided I wanted a Jeep. I had had my sights on the toy (I mean... vehicle) for awhile, and after months of what I refered to as Jeep Eye Candy looky-loo-ing on the internet. I finally decided to pull the trigger. I looked for a used one. No luck.
I pull onto the dealers lot and walk into the show room.
Salesguy: Hi, how can I help you today?
Me: I'd like to see a Jeep.
Salesguy: Sure, what kinda....
Me: uhhhh what do you mean???
Saleguy: What model did you have in mind?
Me: The Jeep. (I see him thinking... thee is a pause)
Salesman: Well, would you like to see the Grand Cherokee, the Patriot, the Wrangler, Liberty...
Me: Oh yeaaa.... Jeep actually has a product line...
(Saleman looks at me like might have some kinda of mental handicap)
Me: Right... a Wrangler... That is what they are called.
Salesman: So what wrangler are you interested in....
Me: Ahhh geez.. Uhh how about a CJ... I think that is what they are called...
(Salesman smiles... and relaxes)
Salesman: Sir, Jeep has not made the CJ in over 20 years. But I think I know what you have in mind. They are called a JK now.
(I have been an engineer in R&D and Product Developement for a long time)
Me: JK... No way... Your "Just Kidding" right?
Salesman: (smiles)... come on I'll show you one.
Me: Yep. That is what I was talking about.
A month or two later I drove a 2010 Rubicon home. I like my JK.
So that's my Jeep story.
Wave to all.
