I'm finishing up a car purchase at the dealer. Both the salseman and the paperwork guy are perfectly nice, not screwing with me at all, but the experience still feels like way too much time and effort.
This is why I procrastinate on car buying. I dislike car buying even more than I dislike shopping for clothes, except I usually feel pleased after a clothing purchase. Cars? I couldn't care less about cars. I cared when I was young, but I don't enjoy driving anymore, so cars are just a necessary evil in my life.
As unpleasant as public transportation can be, I still prefer hopping on the L to driving.
