“2001 audi tt quattro AWD coupe 129,000 miles. car is very clean, 6 speed 1.8T. Bose Premium Sound, 6 cd changer, ESP, cruise control, AC, heated seats, good tires and breaks everthing works. timing belt and water pump replaced at 100,000 miles . I have receipts and service records.”
At the dentist yesterday, I was surprised to learn they missed my foot jammed way up in there after talking to their receptionist/office manager. The conversation with her started innocently enough. We chatted about the weather, their automated phone system and customer service before I switched focus to cars. Not really hard for me to do. Everybody can relate in some way to cars.
Turns out she has a neighbor with a Porsche. “A Porsche? What kind?” Uh huh… you’re not sure but it’s red. Can you blame me for the next, automatic assumption? She’s not a car gal. She prefers to shift from neutral to “D”umb-it-down driving than work the gate. I offered up that the Porsche SUV she thought was cute comes in a manual which probably “wasn’t for her” given her knowledge of Porsche.
Yeah, well the results are in. Her neighbor is apparently an ass. So she doesn’t like to talk with him and therefore doesn’t know or care what kind of Porsche it is but Boxster sounded right to her. She’s very interested in an early Audi TT manual, likes to drive heavy construction equipment and has a new 2012 snowmobile because the old one wasn’t up to snuff.
“The doc is ready for you now Paul.” Terrific, I hope he can help with this nagging asphalt taste.
