Driving in this city sucks. Yesterday it was two trucks slamming into each other on the 401 Expressway that caused a massive back-up that lasted all day. Today it’s a half-dozen other things. I’m really glad that most times I get to work from home. Of course there are those days when I actually do have to go into the office, but most times I’m home before noon and the drive really isn’t that long. Still, I hate seeing a sea of red-lights in front of me when I drive down Leslie Street.
I went with a friend yesterday while she got his oil changed on her car. For no other reason other than ‘I felt like it’ I jumped into a New Beetle to see what I would look like driving around in one. I forgot how much room there is inside. I was shocked. Naturally the sales dude, seeing a woman in a car, came rushing over at speeds that would make Superman jealous and gave me his best “I-want-to-get-you-into-this-car-and-onto-the-road” speech.
When he saw I wasn’t biting, he then offered to knock the price down by $4,000. Now that is reason enough to think about buying a Beetle. That and the fact that I’m 5’10” and I felt comfortable in a car like that. I have been thinking about finally getting a new ride, just Ican’t bare to part with my Mustang. I’ll have to think about it.
