    Interesting gas station conversation today....

    Me: Nice car!
    Guy: Thanks, just got it, my new Z4
    Me: Z4??? Its a Z3. What year is it?
    Guy: 2007
    Me: A 2007 Z4 in a Z3 body?
    Guy: Huh?
    Me: What engine is it?
    Guy: Its a V8!
    Me: Really??? Let me see...
    Guy: Sure, I'll open the hood
    Me: I only see 6 cylinders
    Guy: Huh? The rest must be hidden in the back
    Me: Right...I forgot about those
    Guy: And it has a supercharger!!
    Me: That??? It looks like an H&R CAI
    Guy: Huh?
    Me: Where did you get it?
    Guy: I work at CarMax, got a great employee deal! If you ever need a car, come see me and I'll hook you up!
    Me: Wow, you must make a lot of sales with your incredible car knowledge...

    CarMax sucks. Their sales associates don't know anything about cars, can't negotiate the price - they are trained monkey who follow script.
    1. Greet customer, ask what they are looking for.
    2. Take them to car or check in computer if car is available anywhere else
    3. Keep repeating company line "CarMax picks the best cars and sells them at the best possible price".

    That's it. They are not sellers, they are showers ... The Walmart of car buying...

    I know that. But I didn't know H&R made cold air intakes.
    Maybe that should have been K&N?

    Wow. What's the hiring process there? "Can you see me? Can you hear me? You're hired! Go sell some cars!"
