Thursday Portrait.....




.
.
The dealership that I work for, Vic Canever Chevrolet, has been chosen as the Flagship store for GM's new look. Project 2013!
The idea is to have all the divisions look the same..Much like McDonalds...Wendy's...Etc. When you see the blue and white with a Gold Bow-Tie look from the outside, you'll know that it's Chevrolet... Buick, Cadillac, and GMC will have their own look as well.
Since we have remodeled, these "Corporate Interior Designers" just can't decide on how the reception desk should look like. We have had THREE different desks since March, and today no less than TWELVE 'Shooters' from GM's World Headquarters came to check out the new look. I swear, at one time all 12 people were just staring and staring and staring at this desk. It was SPOOKY! Anyway, I decided to sit in the reception chair during one of these Stare Downs, and I was trying to figure out what they might have been staring at.
Hmmmmm....
I wonder what might have going through their minds?
See you all tomorrow...

Seems like a silly expense to try out so may desks. It's just a desk.

Serena said...

So, do you suppose that after all that staring they got it and the "Shooters" will be submitting Friday 55s?:-)

"I simply can't buy a car from a place with that desk . . ."

When I was little my dad had a Chevrolet, which is a VERY unusual car over here, I´m not even sure I´ve ever seen another one in this country!

sheri said...

yeah, galen...you THOUGHT they were trying to figure out about the look of the desk...what they were really wondering is how the new blue and white uniforms would look with your eyes ;) can't wait to see you in it!!
btway...the times you've spent with that boy of yours is priceless and you'll see the pay out for it when he has kids of his own...way to go!

Is it Friday yet?

Jannie Funster said...

Strangers come and stare at my desk too -- its' weird, especially since I'm in a private house, not a business.

a couple more research questions...

favorite fish to catch?
favorite adult beverage?
favorite kind of meat?
favorite kind of dessert?
favorite kind of weather?

Don't worry about coming back over to my blog, you can answer these here, and I'll pop back over.

I may not get this ready for tomorrow. And I'm doing Jingle's rally next week, so it may have to be another 2 weeks for the 55 for and about you!

Rock on. And sell those cars! :) My hubby is a car guy too.
