I was in town today and I dropped off something for the salesman that sold 2393, to me. I was able to drop off two framed pictures on his desk with out him seeing me. (Homesick and City Slicker, from my fanatic photo’s) On the homesick picture I Thanked him for making the sale happen smoothly. (Other than I could not use 3500 Visa points … EEER!) Hope that makes his day. :angel

... His walls are 2/3 empty ... if not he has two free frames. :lol

Hey Rebel what a nice jester! You are well on your way to becoming “The Customer of the Year" at your dealership!

To tell you the truth that is what I enjoy doing also... once I made up a Christmas Card for one of my old favorite salesman, telling him thanks for making me a his number one GM customer. I said on the card... "I have lost count how many you sold me hmmm … 17 or 18 SUVs. :lol He got a really big kick out of it. I remember coming back in to see him several months later and he still had that card out on his desk!

I also made up a 20” x 30” poster of my SSR called “MY SSR History” photos etc just for my dealer friend and also a salesman that I enjoy working with. I know that they get a lot of complaints during their every day business... so to give a big smile to someone that doesn't expect it is really fun and it feels sooooooooo good too! ;)

I have been a Sales manager/ general mgr at my family owned Chevy dealership for 20 years now and It always makes a sales person feel good to be thanked by a customer. A few bad sales people give all the rest of the good salespeople a bad rap. We try very hard to make a customers buying expierience a good one but you would be surprised to find that nomatter how hard you try there are some that think you have made enough to retire off of them anyways. I am shore that you made your salesmans day with your ack of kindness. :) :)

I haven't taken a photo in for my sales guy but I went to Sam's and bought those huge Choc. Chip Cookies and took them over to them when I dropped off the SSR.... Of course they said, "oh you shouldn't have, " but by the time I went back to pick up the SSR they were all gone!!! :)

Nice gesture. After watching the pay it forward movie I thought a lot about that concept and decided I liked it.

When I bought my Z06 in Aug 01, pre 9/11 when the 02 was just hitting the streets and was in high demand, I went to my little local Chevy dealer and asked him about getting a Z06. The sale manager laughed at me. I learned quickly about Corvette quotas for dealers. Anyways, he asked me what I wanted (Torch Red 02 Z06) and he sat down at his computer, did a quick search and printed out about 40 build sheets east of the Mississippi and handed them to me and told me good luck.

On about my 32nd phone call I reached a dealer who said they didn't have Torch Red Z06 for sale. I asked if it was sold already and they more or less said, "read my lips we don't have one, haven't had one..." Looking at the build sheet in front of me I asked them to do a VIN check. After a heavy sigh, they did one and found the car was on a train headed their way. "I presume you haven't sold it yet" was my next statement. :jester

The dealership ended up being very helpful from that point and actually gave me a good deal at the time. I flew there, bought the car, drove it home and went straight to the little local dealer with a big bottle of Dom Perignon. He was very pleased to see me again, especially with a shiny new car (and he actually haven't even seen one yet).
