Why do they think we are morons?

I hate these commercials for the struggling US car manufactures. These “Red Tag Saving” events where they say “…the price on the tag is what you pay, not a penny more!”. WOW, really?!?! Hasn’t that always been the case? Have you ever walked into a dealership and the price was $16,000 and they said, “Well it’s actually $20,000…”?

They try to play it off like that is the easiest way for you to shop. They say it’s a “no-haggle” shopping experiance. Whenever I looked for a car, that was the fun part! Talking them down and seeing how much you could get knocked off. Not that it was actually knocking off money, because they had marked it up so muc already. That’s a topic for another day.

There you go… I just wanted to vent. So for the almost excessive use of “air-quotes”. I guess they aren’t air quotes if I’m typing them, uh?
