The people in the Audi showroom spotted Charlie as he was getting closer and closer. One of the salespersons blurted, “Fuck, it’s the e-bike guy who bought the BMW 760!”
“Damn, I’m going to stop him and persuade him to buy the top-spec Audi A8 even if I have to lick his boots!”
All of a sudden, a large number of Audi salesmen rushed out and surrounded him.
“Sir! Please come and see the latest top-spec Audi A8 in our showroom!”
“Sir! Our A8 is very powerful. It uses a W12 engine, which is much better than the BMW 760 V12 engine!”
Charlie arched his eyebrows curiously. “Really? Isn’t that great?”
“Yes!” An Audi salesman marched forward hurriedly and started, “Boss, let me explain to you. Our W12 engine is divided into two sides and one side can be turned off as you please. It is more fuel-efficient when you turn off half of the twelve cylinders!”
Charlie growled contemptuously, “Are you out of your mind? Why would I buy a twelve-cylinder car and turn off six cylinders for the sake of fuel saving? I can just buy a six-cylinder car!”
“Erm… Ah… I…”
The salesman’s face turned into an embarrassing shade of red when he realized that he had misspoken.
Charlie smirked at them and said, “I know what you’re thinking. You are frustrated that I bought a BMW 760 next door yesterday and you want me as your customer today no matter what, am I right?”
The group of salespersons nodded profusely.
Charlie snorted. “Let me tell you, it’s too late! You ignored me and treated me indifferently yesterday. Today, I’m way out of your league!”
He pressed the horn of his little scooter and said, “Get out of my way, I would like to go to the BMW showroom to buy a car!”
The BMW salespersons rushed out of their door and shouted, “You Audi losers, what do you think you’re doing? Are you trying to steal our customers? Don’t you see he doesn’t even want to listen to you? Get out of his way! If you block his way again, I’ll call the reporters and expose you!”
The Audi salespersons sighed regretfully and walked away in despair.
The manager of the BMW showroom came to greet Charlie in person and asked respectfully, “Good morning, Mr. Wade, would you like to buy another car today?”
Charlie nodded and said, “Do you have a BMW 530? Cash and carry!”
“Yes! We do!”
The manager was over the moon.
A 760 yesterday, a 530 today, he was indeed a generous customer!
He hurriedly said, “Sir, please follow me, I’ll show you the car.”
Charlie hummed and followed him into the showroom.
There was a BMW 530 in the exhibition hall. Charlie sat in to feel it and realized that although the exterior was very similar to the 7 Series, it was a lot worse inside. However, it was considered luxurious enough for his aging and pompous father-in-law.
He was about to take out his card and go on with the transaction when he heard a familiar voice coming from nearby, “Oh my dear, I really like the BMW X6! Could you buy me one, please?”
Charlie, who was sitting in the car, looked towards the direction of the voice when he saw Lily, Douglas’s fiancée, wrapping her arms around a stranger’s arm and speaking in a coy and intimate manner.
Charlie frowned in agitation and thought, ‘Lily called the man ‘dear’. Is this woman cheating on Douglas?’
Suddenly, a surge of fury slowly burned inside him. He hated unfaithful women who had no moral boundaries.
Moreover, Douglas was working hard to build his career while this woman was cheating on him! She was so disgusting!
He listened to the man teasing her with a lustful face, “If I buy you the X6 now, how would you explain this to Douglas?”
“Douglas?” Lily blurted with a look of disgust. “Don’t mention his name, he is nothing but a loser! He is not rich, he has no skills, he has nothing! I wouldn’t be with him if not for his honest and down-to-earth personality!”
