Steph:  Hey. Guess what?

Allison:  What?

Steph:  I bought a new car last week.

Allison:  Wow. Great!

Steph:  Yeah. It’s totally cool. It’s kinda hard but in the end it’s worth it.

Allison:  I’ve heard that it’s hard to buy a car.

Steph:  Yeah. I mean, it’s kind of expensive. But, ya know I had to get my financing together and stuff.

Allison:  Did you understand what you were doing?

Steph:  I don’t know. I mean, there was a lot of small print in all the documents I was signing. But, um, I got a loan from my bank so I’m happy with it.

Allison:  Was there a lot of paperwork?

Steph:  Oh my gosh. There were like twenty things that I had to sign. It was ridiculous.

Allison:  Were the people helpful?

Steph:  They were helpful but they were trying to sell me things every time I turned around.

Allison:  Did you hold your own? Did you not buy the things you didn’t want to buy?

Steph:  Totally. They tried to sell me like 4 thousand dollars worth of extra stuff, ya know. And I was like no I’m not buying that. I don’t need that.

Allison:  Good for you!

Steph:  Yeah.

Although it was complicated to buy a new car, in the end it was well worth it. I have never owned a new car, so I decided to get the one I wanted.
In the end, I decided to buy a Honda hybrid because it gets such great gas mileage.
Some of my friends are a little bit jealous, but I don’t really care. If they wanted to buy a new car, they could do it too. It just takes a lot of hard work and focus.
