Not a good sign of the times, from columnist and talk show host Dennis Prager:
In each case, I experienced the following: I was greeted pleasantly upon entering the dealership. A young salesperson asked if he or she could help me. I told the salesperson the model I was interested in. He or she made a copy of my driver’s license and returned with a key to the car, and off we went.
In every instance, the salesperson was sweet, unenthusiastic and largely ignorant of the car in which I was interested.
All of them answered most of my questions — such as “Is this SUV available in all-wheel-drive?” — with some version of “l’ll look it up.”
