Yup! The "factory" warranty on my 87 Wrangler is about to expire! I'd better go ahead and buy an extension from these trustworthy experts I have on the phone! I am soooo lucky they called me when they did!
Hell, I didn't know AMC offered a 22 year / 2,000,000 mile (which ever comes first) warranty
Wow, I wish I'd have known about it before it ran out!
Jeesh! So, I'm settin' here this morning and my cell rings. I didn't recognize the number so I answered it just to see what it was. I get a recording. The exuberant but warning voice told me that my factory warranty was about to expire and that this was the last (that's funny, it was the first) call before my file was closed.
tiny has been dealing with this crap on her cell phone for months, but today they hit mine.
I waited, and finally "Chuck" answers. This is a transcript of the call:
"HI THERE! Can I get your name and the spelling for verification?"
Sure, Chris C H R I S... Cain C A I N.
"Thank you. Can I get the year, make and model of your vehicle please?"
That's when I started. Yes you can! it's an 87 Jeep Wrangler!
he interrupted, "We certainly wouldn't be able to offer you a warranty on that!"
I said "YEAH, I KNOW!" My girlfriend has been getting call after call from you and now you're bothering me?! Un unh! No way! You take our numbers off your call list Chuck!
And I gave him tiny's number also.
"Well... We can put you on the "no call" list...
NOPE! These are our cell phones! Listen here Chuck, if I get so much as one more call on either phone from you people...
I hate that crap!!!!
Just leave me alone! If I want to buy something, I have this super-human, uncanny knack of being able to find the things I want to buy.
I don't need a reminder, let alone one that is clandestinely hidden as something most people need, such as a warranty on a newer car. These people border on harassment. They just wouldn't stop calling tiny.
I don't know about you guys, but I have neither the time or patients for this sort of thing.
