Charlie plastered a sarcastic smile on his face and asked, “How much commission do you make on this Car?”
The person snarled, “Ten thousand dollars!”
Charlie nodded as a sign of acknowledgment. “Okay, very well, you’ve just lost ten thousand dollars.” He then turned and went out. Coincidentally, he bumped into the manager of the shop with a name tag on his suit that read Arthur Walsh. He asked the man directly, “Are you in charge of this shop?”
“Yes, I am.” Arthur nodded. “May I help you?”
Charlie pointed to the rude sales executive and said, “You’d better fire that person now. He is a rotten apple that will do no good to your business here.”
The person quickly dashed forward and said, “Mr. Walsh, don’t listen to his nonsense, he is crazy! He is just a poor bugger who comes to use our WiFi and air conditioning!”
Charlie smiled coyly. “A poor bugger, you say? Just wait and see.” He immediately went out of the door and walked into the BMW showroom next door. As soon as he walked into the showroom, he saw the BMW 760, the luxurious model displayed in the center of the vast hall. It was the most expensive model of BMW with the top specs of the 7 series. The BMW 760 was equipped with a 12- cylinder engine which was very powerful and its interior was extremely luxurious. Truth be told, he was being irrational too. How dare those Audi idiots look down on him? Alright, he would buy the top-spec BMW for them to see! I have the money, you fools! He waved at a sales exec and asked, “Do you have ready stock for this 760?”
The young lady was startled. “Sir, this car has just arrived in the showroom today. Are you sure you want to buy it?”
“Yes.” Charlie nodded. “I’m absolutely sure, let’s go ahead and seal the deal now!”
“Huh? It costs 2.6 million!” The lady was even more stunned. She had been working at the showroom for quite some time now but this was her first time seeing a customer who came in and bought a car on the spot! He was just fooling her, wasn’t he?
Charlie said with a smile, “I know, I’ve seen the price, just tell me if you want to sell it!”
“Err.. yes, yes, of course…” the lady stuttered and slowly smiled gleefully. “Please follow me!” ‘
In a blink of an eye, his card was swiped, the payment was made, the car key was handed to him, everything went on smoothly and rapidly. When the BMW 760 was driven out of the showroom, everyone in the Audi showroom blinked in astonishment. Charlie drove the BMW to the entrance of the Audi showroom, opened the trunk, folded and stored his scooter inside, then drove away casually. The sales exec who had mocked Charlie stared at the scene in bewilderment. Arthur glared at him and said coldly, “Go to the HR department right away, you’re fired!”
“Manager.. ..” “Get lost!” The rest of the Audi sales executives were stunned in shock. Who would have thought the man who came in a scooter would be so arrogant that he would just buy a 2.6 million dollar car without hesitation? The sales exec who was fired even cursed himself out of regret. Not only did he lose a wealthy customer and his lucrative commission but he had also lost his job! If he could rewrite his past, he would not look down on anyone…
Meanwhile, as Charlie was driving the BMW 760, he slapped his forehead in agitation over his impulsive action. He wasn’t frustrated because of the money spent but because of the car’s price tag. It was way over his initial budget, how would he explain it to Claire? Could he say that the 2.6 million dollars dropped from the sky? It sounded ridiculous, didn’t it?
