When Your Customer Tells You They Want Your Business

I'm looking to make a move with my two-car situation. I'm not a typical sales target. I'm a social guy. I'm an online guy. I don't want to sit in a showroom and do the dance. However, on this particular day, I was in the mood. However, no one was listening.
