Love and the Mystery Shop

Mystery shopping and love... Who would have thought it was possible? And then on an auto shop, I locked eyes with Latin. Could it be love at first sight? He was my salesperson on an auto shop, and I was shopping him... Let's just say love was not a part of the report. I certainly don't want to lose my job or make anyone lose theirs, though both of us could.

I first thought of some kind of connection with him when he said that most women don't like the same music he likes.
Savvy: Really? What kind of music do you like?
Latin: Oldies.
Savvy: What kind of oldies? Like KRTH 101? 1950s? DuWop?
Latin: Yes. And stuff like Andrea Bocelli.
Savvy: I love that kind of stuff. My station all of last year for my commute was KRTH 101.
Latin: Wow. Really?
Savvy: I know how important music is. It means everything to me.

He smiled and seemed pleased. Back to finding a car to test drive. He showed me the interior and I leaned the seat all the way back. I wondered how unprofessional it would be to kiss my salesperson...and then snapped out of it. What was I thinking??? Back to work!!

The test drive seemed more like a date than a test drive. I really started to wonder if he felt the same thing and just had to be professional. When we got to the point of talking about numbers...
Savvy: well, buying a new car is a big commitment and I'm not sure I'm ready.
Latin: Let me give you my phone number here at the dealership, it's my direct line and you can call me anytime.
Savvy: Well, if you really want me to reach you, why don't you give me your phone number at home? Or your email?
Latin: I'll give you both.
Savvy: OK

I didn't know what I would actually do with the information I had been given, but it felt so nice to have hope that love could thrive among the mystery shops.

Look for Part 2...
