Default Saturn Secret Shopper

So I don't know how many of you remember an article on the front of saturnalia about saturn wanting to hire some secret shoppers? Well I went through the process and I got a free oil change and $8.00 for my trouble. Overall pretty painless process.

SHHH!! You aren't supposed to tell anyone!

No seriously that is pretty sweet though, I'm planning on doing it myself. I need an Oil Change right about now.

Devil Re: Saturn Secret Shopper

In the current 'stealership' Saturn climate, the last time I was a secret shopper I was verbally mugged at the dealership. I met this dealer named Vinny. He seemed as if I was ruining his day with each new question I asked. It did not help that he was cracking over walnuts with his bare hands while showing me cars, even getting the shells all over the inside of the cars.

I was flat out told which make I wanted, after I said I was not interested in that make. I was accused of being a 'funny guy' by someone the dealer called over named 'Bruno'. 'Bruno' was easily 6' 10" and 300 lbs. He looked as if he lived in the weight room.

I then decided it was best to leave since I became worried. I told the dealer I would be back after shopping around and he instructed Bruno to 'show this guy the door' as he cracked his neck.

As I looked back I saw them doing a mocking wave as they crunched their necks.

Almost sounds like a "Seinfeld" episode. No car for jou!
