What do you when you are sitting at the Toyota dealership for, no exaggeration, hours? First, I spent some time thinking about ways the process of buying a new car could be way simpler. Then, I read through all of the brochures, manuals, and paperwork I could find. I texted a few people to let them know I was looking at a new car. I played a few rounds of Word Scramble on my phone, read the free highlights from the Wall Street Journal, Sacramento Bee, and New York Times apps, and thought about ways the process of buying a car could be way simpler.
It turns out the old car I was turning in was Nautical Blue Metallic, and, even as rusted as it was, was worth something toward the Blizzard Pearl beauty sitting on the driveway right now.
I’m no longer concerned with how long I had to wait in the sales area. Instead, I have spent the past few days trying to figure out why it took me so long to get this smooth white ride.
