Goldilocks and the 27 cars


Goldilocks Madsnapper and the 27 cars

Once Upon a Time, MadSnapper and her Hubby Bob hit the road to find  the perfect truck. MadSnapper likes to drive a truck, it has to fit just right. Hip Height, seat height, see out the rear window height, see when looking over her shoulder heights. It has to be a Perfect Fit to her body style. See Below body type.

First car lot, MS sat in a Honda CRV.. feels great, fits right, UGLY inside and OUT.
MS sat in Nissan Altima.. UGG it is like sitting in a hole, and I can't get OUT.

Next Stop.... we find a lot where no one appears to SELL..PLUS every door on every car is OPEN.

MadSnapper sat in 21 cars, She sat and said To low, She sat and said can't see out, she sat and said NOPE, sat and NOPE 21 times. NADA that fit the above body style. But at least she knew what NOT to look for...

Next Lot she sat in a raggedy 2002 Kia Sorrento... LOVED it fit just right. but old and ragged out.
and thus the story goes through 4 days, 9 car dealers  and 26 cars.

MadSnapper Whines I am going HOME.. just forget this. I am exhausted.
Hubby said the only dealer left is Hyundai, stop there.


Out pops a sweet young man and I tell him price/year range and  my
body type fit the car thingy and he says I have two that fit that description.

MS sat in the 2010 Hyundai Sonata, leather seats, amazing truck and said this is good.. Let me sit in the other one.

MS sits in the 2007 Kia Sorrento, no leather seats, 3 years older and says....


I want to drive it. (note: the only one I drove)

Sweet guy gets in back seat, Bob in passenger, I go around the block and kick it a LITTLE... (later Bob said Sweet Guy was holding on to the door)

I pull in and say this is it... It fits me like a glove. I LOVE IT! I want it. We went inside with Sweet Guy the Sales Person...

We found the Kia at 10 AM and I drove the truck into the garage at 4:45. Bob went out to play with the Kia,

Jake came to meet me
and threw up at my feet a MOUSE!. a WHOLE MOUSE!.

How can a dog swallow a whole mouse? why would he swallow a whole mouse? When did he find it? Where did he find it?

the not so perfect end to a not so perfect day...
The Rest of The Story to be continued with Sweet Guy and the MadSnapper,

Congrats on the right car find....eww what furry babies will try to eat:)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Fun post MS and so glad you found the perfect fit! Sorry about the mouse.

Inger said...

So that was the bad ending to a good day. None of my dogs ever ate a mouse (to my knowledge), my cat used to kill rats in L A and eat their heads. I'm sure that's not what you wanted to hear right now, sorry......

I'm so glad about the car. Have you seen the Kia commercials with this woman that no one liked in high school but who is now absolutely gorgeous as she steps out of her Kia? It made me interested in these cars, so good to know they work well.

Madge Bloom said...

Love your description of your wants and you final find! Woohoo!

Mersad said...

I'm glad you went with a new car. Congrats!

DawnTreader said...

Glad you found a new car and I hope it proves worth all the sitting in the cars you didn't like as well :)

S. Etole said...

Ewwwwww ..... enjoy that new car.

Willow said...

Glad you found the right car for your fit :)
Yuk on the mouse.

SweetMarie said...

So happy for you! I liked those a lot when I was shopping for another suv. Now with the gas prices I wish I had bought one. lol
Whole mouse! Gross! Hope you brushed Jake's teeth! lol

jackie collins said...

Just hilarious! We call that the "butt and eye test"! Glad you found one that passed the test! A whole mouse??? He must be a fast dog!

Grandma C said...

Now that you have found the perfect fitting slipper. Will you be giving us lessons on how to find our perfect fitting glass slippers?

Susannah said...

Everything sounds so perfect!...Until Jake had to up chuck! But the car sounds wonderful. I know all about the fit. Has to be just right! I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's post....gotta hear the rest of the story!!!!!!!!

Catherine said...

Betty Manousos said...

Terri Buster said...

Splendid adventure! Much fun until the dog puked up the rat at the end...but the result was a sweet car that you love, so YAY!

photowannabe said...

Oh Sandra, you are the A #1 story teller.
Love how you got your new car and it's "just right".
I guess I would have thrown up too if I swallowed a whole mouse!!!
What an ending to your day.

Betsy Adams said...

You are so funny... All of us humans are 'picky' about certain things in our lives---and your pickiness is about your car/truck... Glad you found something that is PERFECT for you... Was Bob patient during all of that??? I am not sure George would remain very patient!!!!! ha ha

Can't wait to hear more of the story.
Hugs,
Betsy

Michaele said...

Well you certainly know how to shop!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Sounds like you found the perfect fit.A car is not something one buys every day,at least I don't.

SquirrelQueen said...

It pays to be picky when you are making a major purchase like a car. I'm glad you found the perfect fit.

I know cats can swallow mice whole, I've seen one of those come back up. It should be easy for a dog.

Andrea Kuska said...

Glad to hear you didn't get pushed into the wrong car! When it comes down to a car you really can't be too picky.

George said...

I'm glad you found the car that was a perfect fit. I'm not quite as happy about the mouse.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I'm glad you found the perfect car..or is it a truck? But the mouse! Not sure I could have handled that one! Yikes! LOL

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Oh..and the ladder? Yep..I commented on a year old post! :)
However, if I cannot get anyone to tie up those roses..I am gonna do it myself! I hate getting old!! I really, really do!

Rose said...

Love this story! The ending is hilarious...

Can I say that sometimes the year of the car makes a difference to the way it sits. We had a 92 minivan...I loved how it sat. How it rode. It was 6 months old when a car turned in front of Roger...so had to drive substitute for a while...first gave us an old minivan..same make as mine. But it was like sitting down in a hole. If I had sat in one from that year first, I would never have looked at another one.

Ann said...

I'm so glad you found one that you liked. So you had that sweet young guy a little nervous did you? Were you driving like Mario Andretti?....lol
Believe it or not at the dealer I go to, they hand me the key and say here ya go. But then I've bought 6 cars from them over the years

Chatty Crone said...

I love my Honda CRV - we have 3 of them! lol

Eva Ason said...

Gosh how I miss having a car and drive around...but perhaps another year lol What a cool story
