I would have left a looooong moment of silence, followed by:

"I came here for a business transaction. I gather that how I answer that question somehow influences the business deal.

Cancel the sale."

That's why it's best to buy a new car.

Oh geez. Is it really that big a deal? You might have a heart attack if you ever travel to Utah. There are plenty of mountain towns in Colorado maybe you just chose the one offensive to your sensibilities.

Kind of offensive to go around asking people which brand of God they worship but maybe if you played ball you could've gotten the car even cheaper. Something about catching flies with honey.

Yeah you are nice and safe in satans DENver.
A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. †.

Re: My Advenuture with a Christian Car Salesman
I was embarrassed by hubby´s response, but also totally miffed that our religious status had anything to do with their selling us a car.
 Quoting: Heathen Car Buyer 0


It wasn't your religious status. It was YOUR bias against them. It wasn't until you found out they were Christians that YOU started to act weird. And then your dumb-ass husband insults them rather than just answer with a simple and polite, "no".

Generally in life you get out of others what you're looking for. You were looking to be assholes and that's why you got the response you did.

Judging by your tone I think you are looking for a predetermined response yourself. Speaking in a foul tone for Jesus are you? Thinking outside of the box? Not very inspirational.

Re: My Advenuture with a Christian Car Salesman
I don't think the stepford wife asked the question for conversation starting- I think she had an agenda. These kinds of folks who are overboard on religion, displaying it all over the office and such, are not able to just have a decent conversation without bringing up their brainwashed fantasy into it. I would of asked, if it was me buying the car, "why do you ask?" And that is the 1000 dollar question my friends, why did she ask you that? The christians are getting pissed that the atheists need to "put it in their face", but as you can see, thats exactly what this woman did when she asked that question...hypocrisy anyone???

Re: My Advenuture with a Christian Car Salesman
Some tips:

Remember that you have the upper hand. You're the one whose business the salesperson wants.

Think about this old adage from the world of negotiations: "Whoever speaks next, loses."

Don't offer any more information about yourself than you have to. The more a salesperson knows, the more that person can tailor a strategy to you.

Rein in any enthusiasm. No drooling in the showroom. Don't let the salesperson see your hand trembling in excitement as you caress a fender. If you must buy a car this day or this week, don't reveal that. Any urgency on your part transfers some bargaining power to the salesperson.

Understand that, if you're talking to a salesperson on the phone, he or she desperately wants to get you into the showroom. If you're in the showroom, that salesperson desperately wants to sell you a car right then and there. If you're ready to buy a particular car, he or she desperately wants to switch you to a more expensive car, or at least get you to pay as much as possible for whatever car you buy.

Be prepared. Do a lot of reading and researching so you're not thrown for a loop if you're suddenly offered an extended warranty or some feature you don't know much about. Better still, by doing a lot of reading, you'll be prepared for the many ways that salespeople will try to manipulate you into buying something you don't want or paying more than you need to.

Don't negotiate alone. Take some friends or relatives with you.

Re: My Advenuture with a Christian Car Salesman
The OP is a complete LOSER and made the illogical leap that made her think that religion had ANYTHING to do with the sale of the vehicle. Are you mentally retarded? She asked probably to share with you and have some conversation. Since your lamebrained husband was rude and blurted out NOOOOO, the atmosphere changed because of YOU...not them. What if she asked "Do you like apple pie?" and he blurted out NOOOOOOOO! Same thing. I would have thought you both as a couple of lame brained uneducated morons that don't know how to be polite.

And by the way, if Christianity or your "religious status" had anything to do with the sale of the vehicle, don't you think you would have been asked UP FRONT and NOT given a deal if you WEREN'T? YES??

And also, if they WERE trying to convert you (or as you in your paranoid delusional state THOUGHT they were going to do), don't you think when your oaf of a husband yelled out NOOOOO, that they would have even tried HARDER to save you??

The lady was trying to be polite, trying to start conversation, trying to find some common ground with you...but you had to go be rude.

It's people like you that have no grace, no tact, no ability to be polite.

Instead, in the future, pull your fucking head out of your ass, and simply say when asked, "No, I'm not Christian." That's all. You don't have to inflect your voice like you hate Christianity, or Christians, or God, or whatever the fuck else is your problem. Just be polite. And if she were to have said, "Well, we are and it's the best thing since sliced bread." Would it kill ya to sit there for a second or two and let them share? WOULD IT?!?

For fuck's sakes....
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3446


A person's religious beliefs are no one else's business. Why do Christians persist in trying to convert everyone? To me that tells me they are not secure in their own beliefs, they need someone else to share them and make them real. A Christian trying to SAVE you? Save you from what? No one has ever been able to answer that question, especially a Christian. They are just spouting dogma, unable to think for themselves. All bs. Religion has ruined mankind.

Re: My Advenuture with a Christian Car Salesman
The christians...such dear souls. Where I live, every fucking thing is 'christian'.

Signs on the road advertising damnation, rocks spraypainted with 'Jesus is my rock', banners at gas stations and even an isle in a meat market proclaiming 'Jesus is Lord' in the same font as the cold meats section!

It is simply assumed that you're a chrispy around here!
There's a motherfucking huge cross not 100 yards from my home too, on an island in the road!

The arrogant bastards just LOVE jesus.
Even the local beggars are on the jesus trip because they know it plays on the retard's sentiments.
I wait for them to beg from me and then I ask them, 'Are you a christian?'

'Oh, YES!' they reply with joy...until I tell them I'm not and I don't support christianity or christians.
The stupid fucks get that vacant look and just stand there like they've seen a ghost lol!

One creepy fellow was selling keyrings with little leather books(bibles) on them and when I said no thanks, I'm not a christian, the industrious lout offered to remove the little cross off the front of the book!
Did my wife and I laugh!

You should have taken the car back...
