    Because I went to this Volvo dealership and it was NOTHING like Irma E's description:

    The sales guy was nice enough but he didn't do any magic tricks. And I don't remember a bartender. :confused:

    Volvo was lately bought by Chinese Geely Automobiles, perhaps they already started to implement changes.

    That's where the RNC was in Hollywood, right? Oh no wait, that was 'Voyeur'. :rofl:

    I didn't realize that people went to dealerships for "The Champagne Room" treatment!

    Especially not VOLVO - I'm picturing everyone being strapped into high chairs surrounded by foam mats on the floor and being forced to drink from baby's sippy-cups while wearing hard hats and safety glasses.

    :rofl: You know, that probably is a perfect description of SOMEONE's fetish/kink.
    That, or they have to drink fromthe sippy cups et al... while watching constant feeds of NEW Disney movies (none of the clasics lol).

    All I can figure is that because I was shopping for pre-owned vehicles, I didn't get the special Volvo magic show treatment that the people looking at the new cars got. :(

    Well, there you go, that was your mistake.

    I always wear my Home Shopping Club cubic Zirconia bling and take in the free drinks and magic show before heading to the used car lot. :tongue:

    :cool:

    I should have talked to you first. Although, I'm just a little worried I might get too liquored up and buy a Volvo.

    The sound effect in my head was... I wonder what s/he mea- WhaaaaaT!?! Oooooooh!

    EDIT: Is it just me, or are we plotting to fleece a Volvo dealership of its liquor? :rofl: I could go to a different thread and these same people are talking about inner products and pions etc... Mein head ist SPLITTING! :tongue:

    @lisab: I think that's also a terrible pick-up line from a stumbling drunk at closing time. :wink: "Hey baby, undercoatingsds mumble mumble *GROPE*" "*SLAP*" :approve:
