it might have been dishonest. but, do you think i did anything morally Wrong?
this summer i was in the market for a new car. i researched. talked to a few dealerships and got their offers (with the exact car i wanted, using my credit scores to determine the exact terms of the deal - so i could get the best deal.) when i was finally ready to buy the car, i was babysitting our neighbor, checked with her mom and she was fine with me bringing her dd to the car dealership. neighbor girl is the same age as my son and they are super close, great friends. so i brought ds (7) and his bff (also 7) with me to the car dealership.
At the dealership, they ASSumed the kids were twins. They both are blond and tan in the summer, one has green eyes /the other has blue. they possibly Could be twins but clearly - my neighbor doesnt call me "mom" she calls me by my first name. I did not tell them they were twins but when they referred to the kids as "the twins" i just laughed. i ended up getting a super deal on the car. better than what i expected because i insisted on the terms we agreed to on the phone and they had obviously messed with some numbers (inflating the profit no doubt.) also while we are there, they ask about your career, etc to make small talk, i did highlight how i teach and babysit to make more money in the summer but i do ok. when i was leaving, they give me this big congratulations talk about how well i raise my childREN. how they behave so well and i "have it all together." someone even said under their breathe - thats one of th reasons why the manager gave me the deal i got.
so was it wrong in any way - to NOT correct them - to not highlight that the kids werent both mine and they werent twins? (btw i have tried to be a mom 3 times, one mc, my son who is 7, and my youngest died when he was one month old) so i think its kinda messed up that i Wouldnt have gotten the same deal - if they thought i only had one well behaved child instead of well beahved twins....
what do you think?
