I just popped over there and the comment count on Danibel's post is at 105
the second to last one gave me a good laugh... well more of a chuckle... actually really I just kind of smirked because it wasn't THAT funny... but still I have to point it out...
Yes from qualification $130,000 in wholesale is produced to maintain a vibe. How many of you complaining about this or even those earning them can actually afford to go into the dealership and purchase one and then get a new one every two years. More than likely none of you can.
I'll just take this "opportunity" to tell you that I wouldn't have taken MK's crappy Vibe if they'd have REALLY GIVEN the thing to me for FREE as everyone in MK claims they do. I am currently driving a bright, shiny, 2006 Red BMW 325i that I PURCHASED (note: not leased) - the full coverage (with additional coverages) insurance payments for which (along with my 3 bdrm 2 bath house that I also OWN) run less than $200/month.
Nah...you can keep on striving to achieve the qualifying amount of production and then maintain that $130,000 to drive that Vibe, hun. I'll wave to ya as I zoom on by with the windows down, the radio cranked, and my hair blowing in the wind!

"...look at me, look at me, hands in the air like it's good to be... alive... and i've got a bright, shiny, 2006 Red BMW... "
I think that she is saying that the INSURANCE is $200/month (relevant how?) But this brings me back to my "where is this money coming from?" question from a few days ago.
Assuming she bought her shiny new bimmer in 2006 when it was new she probably dropped 32K on it. (with her obvious penchant for bragging, I am sure that a convertible top would have been mentioned, price based on the current model year pricing for a comparable 3 series, adjusting for inflation, blah, blah, blah) Again, not sure what her house has to do with anything (does Mary Kay offer houses as prizes now as well?) or the insurance but my point is really very simple... If you had/have such a great job, enjoy it so much, and did not enjoy Mary Kay, then it was simply not for you! There are some folks (I see them every day) that have NO car. They ride the bus to their min. wage job and are trying to sustain a meager living and the thought of being offered a car as ADDITIONAL compensation for their sales efforts is a wonderful incentive. If it doesn't "do it" for YOU, then drive your phat ride and take the cash compensation.
What turns me sideways about this (as in, I go, "huh"?) is that there will probably be some anonymous commenter on here (and I mean jumping all over me for this) saying, "but why do you have to 'put down' the VICTIMS?" I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT THE VICTIMS HERE. I am talking about ms. 325i. Unless the Bavarian Motor Works company victimized her as well (I suppose that is quite possible - - can't wait to see the BMWSUCKS.com site that develops when they get bored of picking on MK!! - "They told me that image was EVERYTHING and took advantage of the trust that I placed in them because they said they were automotive professionals")
But I digress.
Victim or no, MKidiotNOmore has amazed and stunned me with an attitude that I have encountered everywhere in life (including some of the women I observed at seminar) that simply CANNOT control the urge to shove their earthly possessions in your face (even if what you have is better than what they have)
**I am going to speculate here**
I suspect that MKidiotNOmore was like this BEFORE Mary Kay, she was like this WHILE she was IN Mary Kay, and as we can plainly see she hasn't changed now that she is OUT OF Mary Kay.
My boss drives the Mercedes SLK 350 and has a friend who drives a 2000 Saturn (not sure what model). My boss is very modest (though you may be tempted to think otherwise because of the flashy car, you will have to take my word for it, she is very humble) and had not told very many people about her new acquisition. This Saturn driving friend happened to see her walking to her car (Saturn friend was driving by in aforementioned Saturn) and condescendingly remarked, "well at least I OWN my car".
Some people simply NEED to play the "look at me" game.
I am working on a concept for a new reality show (no, I don't have a job doing that, I just fantasize in my little head about what would make better TV than "Are you smarter than a 5th grader" because after a while... c'mon!). One that I think will get massive ratings is putting two people in a room together. For instance, we put Saturn Driver and Ms. 325i together, cameras rolling and see what transpires... call it something like "How high can YOU one-up?"
Ms. 325i, I hope this doesn't get you down. I am sure that you are better than me and everyone on this site in every way. Maybe sometime soon you can give me the privilege of a ride in you shiny red car. Even if it is just around the block.
