"Sir, will that be cash or charge?"

In the 90's I was picking up a vehicle from a dealership. The salesman was delayed a few minutes to give a blue haired older lady a sendoff in her special order pink Chrysler that he said was the first new car she had ever bought. We got to the sales office when we heard the first crash, followed by a second one, then a third.

The cops showed up about the time we got to see what had happened. The new pink Chrysler had pulled out onto the highway and gotten T-boned, which sent her into the next lane where it got hit again, then that vehicle got hit. All told it was a three car pileup.

Thankfully, no one was badly hurt but the salesman remarked that was the first new car he had ever sold that wound up totaled after traveling maybe 500 feet.

You take one out and drive it about,

The car dealer forgot to tell the new owner that the SIZ-O-MATICK, the device that allows the car to fit into any space, was not yet engaged. Thus requiring the driver to actually and correctly gauge the if the vehicle would fit into or through a space.
