I was so excited when I got the call from the dealer telling me they had an orphan Passion Coupe I shouted into my phone "I WANT IT". I didn't even ask what color it was or what options it had on it all I knew was in a few hours I would finally have my Smart Car. As soon as I hung up the phone I called my husband and told him to take his lunch break (it was 10am) and tell the boss he was taking a long one. He came and got me about 30 minutes later and we went downtown Atlanta to the only dealer in GA where my new car waited.
I've never been so excited about a car. I had a Jeep Wrangler which was my dream car since I was a kid, and I was very upset when I sold it but when I got my Smart I was so happy I couldn't stop smiling. When I got back to the office that afternoon everyone thought I'd lost my mind (they all love their SUV's) but who's laughing at whom, know that gas is $4.00 a gallon.
The one thing that gets me is when I'm driving and people in the big trucks and SUV's think they just have to be in front of me because I'm so small. One guy a few weeks after I got The Bumble Bee cut me off just to get in front and he proceeded to turn into a gas station. As we drove by we honked the horn and waved as he was getting ready to fill up his pick up. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard, and the look on his face was priceless.
