Volkswagen's Just Sign Here Sucker Deal is back again!
1. You're at the dealership, about to sign a stupid lease contract which will hand the guy across the desk from you thousands of dollars a year for several years. And you're going to get up and get your own coffee? To heck with that. Put the pen down and tell the car monkey to go fetch you and your significant other the coffee. And tell him to step on it. You haven't signed yet. You can turn all of the time he spent on you into a great big waste by simply walking away.
(Oh, who am I kidding- if you're one of the characters in a car commercial, you're begging to be sold a car and all the power is in the hands of the salesman. I slipped into Real Life for a moment there.)
2. Yeah, I'm sure the Sign and Drive Deal really does go that fast- don't want the customers to look too hard at the bottom line, after all. Sign Right Here and No Money Down, so easy you'll be driving off in "your" new car before you even know it, don't worry about the fine print that's just boilerplate don't she ride nice though?
(And you get to enjoy this feeling of getting Something for Practically Just Your Signature for a week or so before the bills start showing up like homing pigeons*- for tags, title, registration, tax, and the first month's payment. But that will be a fun week with your Felt like You Were Getting a Steal car, won't it?)
*Speaking of pigeons, I hope they enjoyed that coffee.
