AC buys Mrs. Camel a car from a Muslim

Post by asthmatic camel » Sun Jun 03, 2018 2:11 pm

Women!

FFS!

So, Mrs. Camel's car failed it's MOT. (Government test to ensure a car is roadworthy.)

Mrs. Camel cries.

AC gives her a hug and says "Don't worry, pet, I'll sort it out."

Car is a belter but has failed on bodywork and no welder will touch it.

Fair enough, it's time to buy a new car.

AC has stashed enough cash to purchase a new car and has spent hours on the interwebz finding the car of Mrs. Camel's dreams.

"Mrs. Camel" quoth AC, "We need to buy this car, it's the best deal we could possibly get! Phone them up!"

Mrs. Camel, whom I'm sure you will remember is of Jamaican origin duly 'phones the dealer and says "He sounds Asian." and growls at me.

AC politely points out to Mrs. Camel that there are a few honest Asian chaps around and details all the benefits of said car; low mileage, full service history etc. etc.

"What colour is it?" asks Mrs. Camel.

AC groans and says, "It's a lovely royal blue, not like the silver grey ones you've had which kept letting you down."

Muslim on the end of the 'phone is chortling and AC really wants to meet him.

Mrs. Camel drives us both to Muslim dealership in now illegal car and gives AC completely incorrect details about which car we are about to buy.

"It's a Ford Fiesta, that nice blue one!"

AC wanders around the lot attempting to spot this miracle vehicle and is apprehended be Muslim used-car salesman. "I know, mate; just chill." says he.

AC, having checked the car out for mechanical issues, suggests that Mrs. Camel should take it for a spin on the motorway.

Instant waterworks.

"I'm not going on the motorway, you know I don't like motorways!"

AC "Darling, it's the same motorway you drive on when you go singing in Oldham, just the other way round."

Muslim used-car salesman "How about I take you for a drive Mrs. Camel? I'll get the trade plates."

AC uses sleeves to mop up Mrs. Camel's tears and thanks Allah for sensitive Muslim used-car salesmen.

Sensitive Muslim used-car salesman drives car around the block whilst ensuring Mrs. Camel that it's a lovely shade of blue.

AC happily pays the fair price asked whilst sensitive Muslim used-car salesman engages Mrs. Camel in conversation about the benefits of dieting during Ramadan.

Rock on, Abdul!

It's somehow possible to run a used car lot without offering financing?

Sensitive Muslim used-car salesman looked me in the eye and we connected.

"No fucking bullshit here, mate. Cash?" :)

Not a bigoted Muslim then.

Not with low rate financing. :)

Just like most Muslims around here, decent sorts trying to get by. I don't like their religion, they don't like my atheism but, as a rule, none of us give much of a fuck about it.

A possibly lame attempt to counter the perception that we're all under threat from Islam in Britland. It's not the case. :)

That's a nice shade of blue. I'm sure it will have very few breakdowns.

My blue Jeep was 14 years old but had only 150,000 miles on it. One of the pistons broke free of the crankshaft.

I replaced it with a black one. Blue cars are unreliable.

They know sex.

Funny you should say that. I've long been of the opinion that most car dealerships are actually loan dealerships, and sell cars on the side basically. My stepson and I learned how true this is when we went car shopping at a place that literally would not consider a cash offer.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

That sounds less than legal.

It's legal, Grammy. Sneaky and dishonourable but legal.

Let's not forget the wheel rims. The quality of the wheel rims has a big impact. We've all seen lots of broken down and abandoned cars on the highway with ugly wheel rims.

There's nothing wrong with driving an illegal car as long as you are on the way to purchase a legal one. I'm sure the police and judge will understand.

Good story, AC. 8)

Bruce, when I cash in my pension plan Mrs. Camel and I are heading to Rhode Island for a get-together.

I can see it now. You and I sitting in the lounge playing scrabble, feeling embarrassed, trying to engage in small talk while the ladies are in the kitchen, crying with laughter discussing the size of our penises and cooking up fiendish meals containing Asian and Jamaican ultra-hot chillies which will make our anuses explode. :(
