Been wanting to write a dummies post about Jaraxxus, but because of a comment I also got an idea about itemization points and how to make gear decisions.
I'll fiddle with the ideas some more and one of them should be up by tonight.
On non related wow stuff. Thror and I are looking to buy a new car. Well, not necesarily new, but at least a lot newer than our current car, and for us it would be new.
We found something we liked yesterday, it was a fairly new car (jan '09) of the exact brand and type that we want, with all the extras built in already. But the garage was a bit over an hours drive away from our work. Not something you'd go do when you have limited time in the evening when you're not at least pretty interested in the car.
So I called the garage, and asked some questions. One of them was if the price mentioned online was the complete price, and if that was the end amount. Yes, they said.
So we got in the car, drove for over an hour (darn roadblocks causing me to have to drive into a different direction for a while, and getting half lost), and we finally arrive about 10 minutes before the car dealer would close.
We get greeted by an old geezer, and walk inside. So he points out the car, and starts talking about the price. So it's this and this, and then you have to pay transport costs.
I'm like wha? "Transport costs? What for?"
"Well, to deliver it at your door!"
"Oh, that's ok, I'll pick it up."
"Nono, that's not possible, for a new car transport costs have to be paid."
You can imagine how not happy I was, he starts rambling over transport costs and how they had to be paid. So I sigh and ask him what can be done with the price still. He goes nothing, and tells me to think about it, but that he has to close off. Then he tells me that he has 35 in store still.
So he basically double-screwed with me:
1. This car was not new. 6 months old is not new in the car world over here, in fact a pretty big chunk should be taken off over the first 6 monhts.
2. Transport costs when you have 35 of them in store is a bit odd. Even then, it's pretty standard to have some additional costs over the price, but when I call ahead and ask specifically if the price online is the price, explain it will take me an hours drive, and they just screw me over, I get pissed.
I hate buying cars.
I love driving a new one, but I hate buying them.
I wonder if all car dealers are pricks and out to screw you over, I have to say I've not met many who weren't.
