I’m at home right now with a new (to me- it’s a 2012) Avalanche truck sitting in my driveway that I helped my parents get and I am absolutely feeling great!!
My family had never been extremely wealthy, just average people just getting by, but 3 years ago my dad had a heart attack right after losing his job which really made things hard for my parents. They had to eventually file bankruptcy, and though now they are back on their feet, their credit is still fucked.
Last week my Dad’s crappy car finally gave out on him. I took it upon myself to speak with my boss/SD about this avalanche that I had seen on his friend’s website (he owns a car dealership)
My SD was able to get the price lowered by over 7k for me- to only $300 more than what the dealer paid himself!
So yesterday I went to my bank and requested an auto loan in my name for the truck, AND I WAS APPROVED!!! Woot woot!!
Today, I sent my parents to the car dealership to check out the truck, which they fell in love with. They had driven two hours to this dealership, and were only intending on checking it out and maybe get a copy of a buyers order to show to the bank to finalize the loan so they can release the check to me, but my boss/SD told his friend to let my parents bring the avalanche home with them today! The truck is completely mine already (title and everything) and I haven’t paid a cent towards it!
I will go tomorrow to show the truck to the bank and receive the check, which I will then put in the mail for the dealership to receive.
I just think this is so amazing that I was able to help my parents in their time of need.
