Had 2+ hour drive to dealership, so called and checked availability. Made an appointment to see the vehicle and took 1/2 day off work to go. Exchanged multiple text messages confirming. Even updated that I was leaving town a little later than planned. 15 minutes before my appointment time, at which point I'm over 1/2 way there, I get a message that the vehicle is sold. Guess they live by the "bird in the hand" motto, at least on Friday afternoons. I should probably be thanking them, though, because I ended up with a much better deal anyway.
