I wonder if he's now seen 'The Apprentice' with Sir Alan Sugar on BBC2? (-;

I did see it last night Alan. The car salesman that dealt with me and features in the haiku is not at a 'car supermarket' like the one that was featured in 'The Apprentice' last night - he spent ages telling us about his life, where he was born, how he liked surfing - when all I wanted to know was the best price he could do me on a new Toyota...

And he actually told me to 'lighten up' - well I did - I left him and calmly completed my purchase with another salesman...

'fingers the breeze'

I like that

but I'd have liked to have given the first guy 'the finger' - maybe him losing commision was a better punishment - this said maybe I should I 'lighten up' and on refelection his stories now seem quite entertaining... hmmm
