A New Car!!!!

It has been decided that the Dubaibillies need a second car. Well, we go in opposite directions to work, we leave at different times and get home at different times so it makes sense.

We went and talked to the bank on Saturday then went to look at a couple of dealers (we know what we can afford and what we want in that price range). We have decided on a Kia Sportage. It is perfect for what we want, we tend not to buy and sell cars, jus buy them and keep them running until they die, so the resale value doesn't worry us and it will be a nice size for Skopelos when we retire there. Though why I am justifying it to you, dear reader, I really don't know.

So, I took out the loan (for historical and bureaucratical reasons we still have separate bank accounts), and we went to the dealer.

"I want a black one," said Mrs DB.

"I'm sorry?"

"I want a black one."

"I? What about we?"

"I'm driving it."

"I'm sorry?"

"I'm driving it!"

"But I took out the loan for it."

"Of course, did you expect me to?"

" !"

"Close your mouth, darling, we are in a car showroom."

So, by the weekend we should be proud owners of a shiny new Kia Sportage that isn't mine but that I have to pay for!

LOL! I'm trying to avoid that at all costs, but I have a feeling if we move to another country, you'll see a similar scene.

And this is somehow a problem ...? (Well done, Mrs DB!)
