Car shopping is fun..
Parents are kind of listening to what I want and it's within range since they want to be involved in looking with me. With payment insurances etc I can afford upto a max of 14k but I've found some nice 12-13k which is better for me. Thing is while looking, I'll show one I pointed out but then points out that it's a 2015.. it has 26,000 miles >.>
Then goes.. "OH, here's a 2014 with 32,000 miles" What??? Hardly makes sense on some of the cars they're pointing out.. then he finds the electric equivalent of the one I like and points out all the features.. ok it's electric and the gas one has the exact same features which honestly just come as pros to me at this point. For example it's a 2015 Volkswagon Golf with 26k Miles for 13k. Test drive went wonderful, little to no exterior damage, brand new tires, interior is flawless etc etc. Hardly becoming a help when they keep pointing out things I either don't care about or are really pushing my budget. I really love the color of this one too (which also doesn't matter as I've looked at grandma green and beige cars also). Oh well, hope they at least go out and look at it so I don't have the hear about them not being involved. Even at a stupid interest rate and warranty added on it'll fall within budget but the silly interest rate was just kind of pushing the "worst case scenario"
Sorry rant over, still thinking of the Ryzen CPUs but things have to be cut to afford a car. Getting a raise soon and going to negotiate with my managers tomorrow or at minimum get something scheduled as they seem to already have me set for orientation for the new position so they need to know I absolutely am not going into this blind. Hoping for $13-$13.5/h and full time, department I go to isn't a big deal though I hope to stay in mine. Also the reason I can afford this is decent ability to manage money and my grandparents letting me live with them rent free, I just keep up with their lawn which damn near covers the price of rent anyways as I had my old landscaping boss give an idea on how much he would charge to mow this crazy ass lawn and it was like $280 every two weeks.
