Well, I have been a hamburger cook, a women's clothing salesman, a college professor, but this afternoon, I officially became a Waiter!

Put my deposit down for an Envious/Ebony/ABS/LSD/Power/Premium/Convenience/6-CD Changer with Monsoon/Floor mats/Painted hweels this afternoon about 2:00 pm Texas time. I know I will not see it until next summer, but I can save more down payment until then! My dealer (drove 15 minutes to a small town just east of Lubbock) was more than kind. The fleet manager got me started and then the owner of the dealership entered my order and took my deposit. He has already arranged with the owner of his first order to allow those of us waiting to get test rides/drives!!

It seems so unreal. ;)

Do they teach you guys that "intellectual" humor when you take teaching courses in school? I love teacher humor. My sister, a teacher, (and several highschool teachers I had) have that same "blink-and-you'll-miss-it" dry humor. Waiter, great one. :glol:

It's not so much taught as simply a common "talent" of people who then teach. (I've got a captive audience with an incentive to laugh at what _I_ think are jokes. :lol: )

I tell my classes expressly that I am "self-amusing" and they don't have to laugh, but that it couldn't hurt. ;)

Anyway, I am glad to be waiting with the rest of y'all.

Yeah, sometimes I think we're frustrated comedians that have found a captive audience with an incentive to laugh. Well, half of us anyway. The other half is very cranky!

You'd be cranky too if you were a member of this captive audience. :lol:

Way to go. MSRP I hope...
Thanks! Oh, yes, I neglected to mention that I did certainly get MSRP, in writing. :thumbs: It seems that with some 25 dealers within 125 miles of Lubbock, getting MSRP is the standard not the exception in this part of the country.

On the "humor" side subject going on here, I find that my best material still falls short in my 11:30-12:30 MWF section. The students' minds are all on food, especially on Friday!

Chemist... you were my guiding light, my ray of hope. I will always be envious of envious but only with the sand/steel... really thought you would hold out.
Happy for you though. I'm VIN 180, pessimistically due in 7 days, Deep w/ 2 tone. Its been quite a wait and I wish you well w/ my favorite color. :)

Correct equation

Glad you finnaly got stirred up enough to order your Sol.

Periodically, i thought that this forum would certainly be the catalysis to this final equation, i.e. ordering.

Keep us posted as to all your organic and inorganic reactions during that solstice process.

I'm about to do the same thing, did you put down 500 or a grand, if you don't mind me asking? I'm hoping I can get away with 500.
I got away with $200 no problem, Aztec
