    I hope they are protesting what passes for modern country music. I love old school country.

    I will hold down the DFW fort while you are gone.
  7. Thank you for ridding our streams of the LBGT fish.
  8. Straight up! I was fly fishing and spotted him on the far side of the creek. I cast to him several times, and finally got a reaction. I laid the line out gently, in front of him and he jumped and took the fly out of the air. I hooked him and he put up a good fight. When I landed him, the fly was in his lip, and came out easily. I released him.
  9. I fly fish and bass bug in Texas. There is art to catching trout; but the bass and bluegill we have are easy. I did angle up a big bull frog on a black gnat with a red tail. I let it go.

    Tipping for........nothing?

    You think your order magically appeared on the counter, and was just waiting for your cheap azz to stroll in? The server had to put the order thru, get the condiments, forks, knives, napkins, etc. and pack it up in the bags for you to carry out. I leave a good tip for that kind of service.

    Cool Bumble story

    Nope. If she wanted sex, she wouldn't have hooked up with you to begin with.

    So..my covid story is not over

    COVID seems to have effects that linger. Stay strong.
  14. The sales person has no power at all. The sales manager will set the price. Lots of them try to steal the trades. But pretty much everybody is floored by what a dealership offers them for a trade. In many cases you get the same amount that the dealership can go get an identical one for at the auction. I have seen sales managers take someone over to a computer and show them multiple cars just like theirs (miles, packages, whatever) that he could be had instantly for what he was offering to them. Kelly Blue Book doesn't buy cars, and nobody in the business give a shiot what they quote as a value. If a car or truck is in demand, they have no reason to deal with you. They will easily sell it to someone else. I had husband and wife customers. Both were GM employees, and both worked on the creation of the Yukon. They came in and wanted employee pricing on that vehicle. Our sales manager told them no. He said that GM would not replace the Yukon they sold them with another one he could sell for a profit. The husband and wife told him they weren't sure he could turn them down. He said; "I just did." They left, and nothing ever became of it. The customer is more in the driver's seat if the dealership really want to move a unit. I was paid a thousand dollar sales commission on a conversion van that I sold for $10,000 under our cost. I am not qualified to explain that one with authority, but I believe it had something to do with flooring. The unit had been on the books too long, and they needed to get rid of it. Sometimes the manufacturers offer huge dealerships a sales incentive. I worked for an auto mall that got an incentive that said, if they sold 350 mini vans in a month, the manufacturer would pay them $1,000 a sale (on top of whatever they made) going back to the very first sale of the month. I had a family sitting at my desk, close to closing time on the last day of that month. We had exactly the mini van; color trim level and all they wanted EXCEPT the van was fitted with a $2,800 multi-screen dvd system they did not want. I tried to with them off on other vans, but they wouldn't budge. My sale manager finally told me to go ask them if they would be insulted if we just gave them the DVD system at no charge. They bought, and the dealership made a $350,000 sales bonus. I read a few months back, that pickup sales had been good and that they are in short supply. If that is still so, I don't see much leverage for you. I hope I am wrong and you get an excellent deal. Good luck.
