Isn't Jan jumping to conclusions here?
I thought that the stupid customer in this commercial just brought her friends to help her pick out a car- why does Jan just assume that every person she brought with her is ALSO in the market for a brand new car or truck?
I mean, wouldn't that be a rather odd coincidence- "I want to buy a car, and I brought along with me three friends who are also interested in purchasing?" Holy crap, really?
And Jan has her usual stock answers for each person- she can let them know exactly what is available for each one of them without even a glance at their credit scores or even asking them individually what they might be looking for. She can just TELL which ones want a sportscar, truck, 4-door, 2-door, lease deal, used (excuse me, "certified pre-owned,") etc.? How? By looking at their shoes?
I suspect that this is all about Jan refusing to ever, ever get up from her freaking desk. In magical tv land, this does not prevent her from selling 200 cars and trucks a day to excited, blithering idiots who rush in bleating "I want it I want it I want it where do I sign?" Damn I missed my calling- selling cars looks like the easiest damn job in the world.
Still- I came in here with a person interested in buying a car. That doesn't mean I want to buy a car. And it certainly doesn't mean that you get to hand my friend a sheet of paper and say "sign here where it says you agree to pay $400 a month for the next five years, do it quickly and I might even show you the actual car you're buying." It's going to take a little more than that, Jan.
