okay, so last week, well, actually a couple of weeks ago we started looking at another vehicle, for a couple of reasons really.
Firstly, the WB Ute, whilst I love it, needs some more lovin, too facilitate this it needs to come off the road and without a second vehicle..well, I guess I could have the dunny door after I pry it from the wifes cold dead hands, that also screws up getting the washing done, cooking, having kids dropped off to school, parties and all manner of other stuff, which to be brutally honest simply does not bare contemplation.
Secondly, the eldest will in short order get his licence and then I will receive the ” Can I borrow the car keys please day, see ya later can i have them please”…etc etc. So to forstall this somewhat, I made a deal with the eldest bloke. he will have the use of the UTE, for 2 years, during which time he must save enough and buy his own car, I will pay the insurance and rego, he runs it and repairs it and IF, he smashes it, he is simply FKN DEAD!. Good deal I thought.
Now thirdly and not least the most unimportant, the boss lady has the cleaning business, this is resulting in kilometers being put on the Calais and being a 5.7 ltr V8, its not exactly geared to town driving, in terms of fuel economy that is. Granted, the boss lady loves all that power on tap, much like having me on tap i guess, but none the less, its still not really the correct implement for her day to day travels.
So we started looking and I have an aversion towards the Rodeos / Colorados, the RA series onwards in particular in the 3 ltr VCD Turbo Diesel, in a manual…and we found what we were looking for early last week. This also means I get A/ C for weekends and the boss lady will use it for work during the week..TWO BIRDS and ALL THAT!
SO IT WAS NEGOTIATION TIME WITH THE CAR DEALER!…
Having gone through all those hoops, finances part of the vehicle, just over 60 percent and laying a deposit on the balance we agreed, I would aquire the 2007, single cab, 4×2 rodeo, manual. Nice rig actually, has a tray and a cannopy as well, done just on 103,000 kilometers, which for a diesel should be fk all. NOW HERE IS WHERE IT STARTS TO FALL APART!.
I arranged for all the fkn paperwork to be completed and insurance etc and having completed all this late last friday, arranged that we would collect it A.M Tuesday ( Tomorrow), fairly generous of me I thought. They neeed to have a raodworthy done and a wheel alignment and balance for the two front boots, plus a service and detail, so a full day was more than ample…SO I FKN THOUGHT!.
Because a FKN MUPPET rang me at 4pm this arvo and said it was found during the road worthy it needed two new tyres, so they ordered them ( light truck tyres ) and they would not be in until 2PM, TUESDAY…THAT ABOUT 4 FKN HOURS after I was due to pick up the ute, its also after its fkd my whole day, fkd the delivery of me to the car yard plans, fkd the wifes day and made me so fkn angry you would simply not believe. I called the car yard people CUNTS and I do not use that word lightly, fkn idiots and also that I could possibly buy FKN LIGHT TRUCK TYRES FROM SAFEWAY!, they are that fkn common.
I aslo imparted the directive, that should the car not be ready for me to drive off in, at 4PM Tomorrow, they could shove the deal and car up their collective fkn arses. Talk about taking the shine off, of buying a new vehicle.
FKTARDS, MUPPETS, CNTS, TOOLS and space age, class A fkn ARSEHOLES!…FK THE LOT OF THE FKN FKRS!!!!
