Yesterday morning we moved from Mill Creek back to Acorns, which is where we'll be until we leave this area. Was an uneventful 50 or so mile trip. Just like we like it. :)
Once we were set up, all three of us got showers and were back out the door to take an hour and a half drive south to McPherson, KS so Kevin could check out a truck he found out about online. He called ahead to be sure it was still there – it was. Unfortunately, once we got there, he found out that another buyer was interested in it as well. And the sales manager said the other buyer was first in line for it. Needless to say, Kev was not a happy man.
After a couple of hours of waiting to find out if the other buyer was going to qualify for financing, Kev was told the other buyer got the truck. It was a frustrating couple of hours because Kev was there, had the down payment and was ready to sign. The other buyer was at the dealer's other location and it felt like Kev was being jerked around. The owner apologized for the mix-up, saying it was a miscommunication that should never have happened. Ya think?
Anyway, Kevin is still in the market for a truck. But, I have to say I was very impressed with the way Kevin handled himself during the entire process yesterday. He never got ugly or lost his temper or acted like he was upset. After we left, he allowed himself to be frustrated and disappointed, venting a bit, but I couldn't blame him in the least.
Yesterday was also my first born's birthday! Lindsay is a fabulous daughter; no mom could ever ask for a more considerate, loving, daughter. I am grateful to have the privilege of being her mom.
Today has been more laid back. The three of us went to a local used Dodge dealer to see what they may have in stock. Unfortunately, there was just one truck on the lot, but it was out of Kev's price range. So, the search continues.
Tomorrow Randy is going on a road trip with Kevin to look at a truck Kev found at dealership in Oklahoma. Yeah, it's gonna be a drive, but there's nothing close by and Kev wants to check out all possibilities. I'm staying home. :)
Until the next time . . .
