Final thoughts from the car dealership

Well… I worked for them for the better part of 6 months before I tendered my resignation. Some of the people I met were awesome, some of the people I met were not so awesome. In fact, some of them just flat out sucked. Some of the stupid things they wanted us to do made no sense and also failed to work. Some of the things they wanted us to do were stupid and made us money. However there were far more of the failures than the successes, and while I accepted a better job and that is why I am leaving the dealership, I do recognize that it is possible to make a lot of money selling cars.

The truth of the matter is, I dislike lying to people and trying to get them to spend money they do not have so that I can make a pittance. Some people can do it, some people can’t. I am one of those who could do it, but refuses to do it any longer. Every day I woke up and went to work I felt like a slimeball asshole who was just taking advantage of people in bad situations.

And honestly, there is quite a bit of people taking advantage of others in the car sales industry. The fact that right from the start everything you do is intended to make you nothing more than an extension of the guy who owns the place trying to get more money than their own car is worth bothered me.

But hey, that’s why I resigned right?

Well no… the reason I resigned is because I finally have a chance to go into the field I want to be in, Law Enforcement. And so when the state called me to offer me a chance, I grabbed that lifeline with both hands and am running the hell away from the car dealership as fast as I can.
