One Toyota Sequoia Please – Hold the Alligator
Picture this: You’re in the market for a Toyota Sequoia. You’re at the dealership. The salesperson throws you the keys and says “take it for a spin.” You go to open the front door and you notice something moving at your feet. Startled, you lean forward to take a look and BOOM! An 8 and a half foot alligator!
“I’d like to see the Sequoia *without* the alligator option please.“
This happened to Denise Anderson yesterday in Pasco County Florida. According to the news report:
“I looked underneath and I saw how big it was,” Anderson said. “And I just start running backwards, and I went to talk to the guy in the back, and I’m like ‘you got an alligator under your car over here.’ And he’s like ‘no, no, really? No.’ I’m like ‘yea, you have an alligator.’”
The gator moved from the Sequoia and hid out beneath a Toyota Highlander after his encounter with Anderson.
The dealership, Sun Toyota, has a pretty funny salesperson working for them – he managed to make this event into a sales promotion:
“One thing I’ve learned being a salesperson is you gotta spin everything into a positive,” Chaparro said. “So, for all you Gator fans out there, Sun Toyota is officially Gator country.”
The good news for Anderson – the Sequoia turned out to be a good deal. She bought the SUV.
The good news for the gator? We weren’t able to reach him for a comment, but our guess is that he’s angry, confused, and dissapointed – he called that Sequoia first.
