You Are Dismissed!

“You are Dismissed!” Some of the sweetest words spoken to a hot sweaty classroom of 5th or 6th graders at the end of the year.

Should you ever be brought to traffic court for a ticket… and then that ticket is dismissed… ahhhhh… exhilarating!

However, when bringing the car in for a check up, under what I thought was warranty… not a good dismissal.
We purchased the car not quite 2 years ago, about 30 from our home. LOVE the car, hate the gas prices, but I digress. We drive cross country, zipping in and out of States like some folks drive in and out of their driveway.

A slight noise was noticeable when we closed the door… not bad, but it was there. Time to check this out. The car was still not two years old! Off to the car dealer I drove.
As the smartly dressed mechanic slid into the car seat, looked at the odometer, cocked his head and informed me that the warranty on this car is for 3 years, a smile broke out across my face. I can usually get anyone to talk. This guy was all business, and I felt like I interrupted his life, not only his day! “YEAH, that is great, thought it was only for two!”
A most disgusted face turned to me and informed me that we did not purchased the extended warranty… we had a 36,000 miles end point (which we exceeded long before we changed calendars this year). BOO.
