One day my parents went in to buy a new car. They went back and forth a bit on the price and the salesman said, "I'll have to run this past my manager." My mom said he was only going to the back of the showroom, and taking a pull on his coffee. So when he came back and told them, "OK, I got you this price, but I told him you were my aunt."

Mom didn't miss a beat. She replied, "Go back, and tell him I'm your mother." True story!

I told this for Mom's eulogy. I just wish I could channel her when I go buy a car!
