Well, we couldn't get a salesman to even look at us, they were all busy with obviously more well healed and successful people....these hicks probably were just there to see how the "other half" lives. There was ample time for them to pick the model and color they liked and after an hour or so a salesman finally asked if he could help them. Gramps said "we want that one" pointing to one of the models on the floor, the guy kinda smiled and said he'd have to sit them down and qualify them for a loan. Gramps then told gram, "pay the man Queenie" at which she pulled a big roll of 100's out of her apron and started counting out the money. The guy's jaw dropped to his chest....it was a hoot. You can't always judge people by their clothes
Thats a good story
