Washed and waxed it, then watched it get rained on... again.

The attendants that work at the car wash really like it...one said to keep him in mind when I want to sell, since it's obvious I take good care of it.

I told him I usually keep my cars at least 7-10 years. :)

I know I'm responsible for the sale of at least one...I came out of the grocery store to a couple peeking into the front window. The woman was so embarrassed, but I told them it was alright and gave them a demonstration of the features. They were in the market to buy.

I saw them coming out of the grocery store about a week later with a different-colored one. I want a commission check! :)

No, it definitely isn't unless one HAS to buy.

Yeah, I can get by with 15%, but it probably is the darkest I could go. I'm definitely at the age of function over form...

How do you like the HTC One? My upgrade date is in a month and I'm between it and the S4. Held the Note 2 at Best Buy, that thing is retardedly big.

Love it...not a single regret. What tipped the scales for me are the speakers - the sound and volume are phenomenal! It felt way more solid than the S4.
