Valentines Day, Mine SUCKED !

Went to a Chevrolet Dealer in Western Pa. to look at Silverados. It KOLD and a little snow. I arrive about 12:15 P.M. After talking for a bit ,,, Time for the " Important Ride ".... outside the showroom about 5-6 feet from the glass door and slip and go DOWN, Just pure ICE NO salt.
It was " Lights Out " for a bit. I hear some lady saying " Can you hear me".
She says "Can you squeeze my hand?" KANT do that, And my legs dont wanna work.
So they call the meat wagon, I want to get up this lady says " NO ". After a few mins. the hands & feet are working. MY @$&8 EN head has a knot the size of an orange. Meat wagon arrives load me do the vitals, Call my wife meet me at the Horse Pistol. Cat Scan X-Rays, Etc,Etc.
NO head damage, Nothing broken,,, BUT.... I feel like a bunch of FORD & MOPAR guys beat the hell out of me with rubber hoses. Trust me I hurt everywhere !!! The Doc. says "You may feel OK today," Just keep your arm in the sling, Gave me some pain pills.
He also said for a few days, You will be very , very uncomfortable. My wife is thinking to herself,,, " Hes going to be like a Bear with a Sore Azz! " Got back home around 5:15 P.M. And YES, We were going out for dinner, That also went into the toilet....
So How was your Valentines Day?

Re: Valentines Day, Mine SUCKED !

Glad you're okay.....

Look at it this way: now you can lay around for a few days and have the Mrs. wait on you.....

"Honey, I need a beer"

"Honey, I can't reach the remote"

"Honey, when is supper?"

"Honey, I need another beer"

"Honey, why are you staring at me with that big stick in your hand?"

Glad to hear your OK. Sounds like the dealership should give you one heck of a deal on a new ride.

Re: Valentines Day, Mine SUCKED !

Bob, glad you got away with some bumps and bruises. Maybe a higher power was trying to tell you NO to a new Siverado.

Re: Valentines Day, Mine SUCKED !

Go back next week and mention the fact you didn't call a lawyer, and you want a great deal to keep it that way.
