A friend of mine went car shopping the other week. She found a lot with cars absolutely crammed onto it, so it would have been exceedingly difficult to get one out for a test drive without moving about 10 others.

She actually stopped there because she saw one she liked and wanted to test drive it. So the salesman presented her with a contract, to be signed BEFORE she took the car for a drive, and told her they would just tear it up if she decided she didn't want the car after driving it.

After she determined that yes, he actually was serious, she walked away. But I wonder how many cars this place has actually sold (I've driven past it, and it's been there for several years), whether this is a new thing they are trying, or whether they just figured because she was cute, single and blonde they'd try it on.
