Screaming Children

There are a few places that it’s probably not smart to take your young children too without coming fully prepared with snacks and activities.  And yet, we get them here at the dealership all the time.  Most of you have been through the car buying process, it’s not something that takes 20mins – unless you are an impulse buyer.  Every week we have numerous clients in here with their offspring prepared to spend 3-4 hours here, but not prepared for their child’s boredom and lack of awe at a $100,000 sports car.  Come on people, your kids are young they could care less that it comes in exotic colours.  The only thing these kids want is something to do, and if you don’t have anything for them to do they are going to act out.  It’s not their fault that you are an unprepared parent, but it is your fault that they are having a full on melt down in the show room!!!  No one wants to hear that.    Especially not me.  I really like the parents who ask if we have a play area – what do we look like, McDonalds??  No we don’t have a play area, we have a waiting area with newspapers and magazines and wi fi.  How would you like it if I came into your work and starting screaming and crying for 3 hours, and maybe running around and jumping on your furniture?
