Being a woman, I think it is very important for me to handle my business independently. However, this tool at the dealership - THE OWNER, mind you - would not give me the time of day.

Now, I have talked to this jerk probably 10 times since I bought my car and each time he has treated me almost like I didn't exist at all. He walks away from me. Ignores me. Patronizes me. I'm sick of it. I figured I needed to get something done before I flipped my shit and sawed his nuts off with my lugnut hook (which is another story). After not getting a response from Howard, I decided to ask my boss for advice. Andy had the owner, Howard, on speakerphone and I got to hear this jackass APOLOGIZE TO ANDY and say how sloppy they'd been and how it'd been over a month (over 2, thank you very much) and how he was terribly sorry and that the problem would be rectified within 10 days.

What?!! As soon as I get a man on the phone, he is all lick-ass when I can't even get the guy to pay attention to me?!

I wish I could prevent every sale they have for the next 6 months. I wish this guy would get a clue. Obviously, I need to be patient because people will take notice of that kind of behavior and word gets around and he is in a competition-driven industry. I want it to happen now.

It is incredibly hard for me to deal with the fact that I am a minority and my business/feelings/satisfaction are completely unimportant to some people.

What an asshole! I had a similar situation where the company I traded my car into didn't pay me the $1200 warranty rebate they owed me for almost a year! I called. I was brushed off. I was ignored. They finally got their shit together when my dad called and tore a strip off the guy.

Damn, your patience have been tested to their limits lately, Chica. I'm proud of you for how you've handled this.

Chris - you beat me to the joke. I was going to come in with something along that line.

I have no problems since I wear my collar shopping. Fantastic service and incredible discounts.

It is frustrating, I agree. People in that position should be ashamed of doing that to women - what would they say if someone tried to brush off their mother, wife, girlfriend, aunt or daughter? I guarantee you the tables would be turned.

hang in there.
