Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you feel you’ve just been had? Well David Cross of Salisbury, Mass, had those feelings recently after leaving a local car dealership.
Noticing that his ‘new’ vehicle had a variety of issues, he decided a day after purchasing it to return it to the car dealer. Unfortunately the dealer wasn’t in a frame of mind of returning Mr Cross’ his money back.
That’s when Mr Cross decided later that evening, at midnight to come back and steady the score card:
dailymail.co.uk: ‘I hit the first $25,000 car I could see,’ Cross told the Portsmouth Herald. ‘I didn’t hit a car under $20,000.
‘Then I moved a van that they wouldn’t come down on the price for. I moved it with the lemon they sold me.’
This continued until Mr Cross had smashed a total of 7 vehicles. Satisfied (how could he not be?) he then got out of the van he had tried earlier in the day to return, left it there before setting out to find a police officer to report the wreck he had just caused. (there’s nothing like an honest delinquent isn’t there?)
Arraigned to appear in court on Sept 19 Mr Cross was confident that in some capacity he had finally made his point.
The moral of the lesson? For every 17 suckers who take the bait, there’s always a potential David Cross just waiting to return the injustice and then some….oh dear.
