Do you know this actor, Nathan Fillion? Excellent and funny, and you should go see his stuff so you’ll know how he would say something like this, because he totally would.

 

 

 

Buying A New Car Sucks

I don’t know if this is just an American thing or what, but car salesmen (it’s always men) and the whole experience of buying a car have really crappy reputations.

We have those in the US… A family: grandpa/ma, a mother/father/both, her/his/their grown unmarried daughter and the daughter’s illegitimate child son (almost always a son, for great grandpa.)  Daughter comes home from the city/country, harried and tired/happy and relieved. Child son and great-grandpa/ma bond over building trains and astronomy, but child son is secretly unhappy/worried/angry. Mother and daughter are always/sometimes butting heads/get along brilliantly.
