Soooo, I received in the mail a few days ago a pamphlet-type-thing from Hunter Automotive (a dealer in Asheville) that had written on the back If you’re scratch off number matches the number inside, you’re a winner! Well, being myself, I just couldn’t resist the opportunity to scratch off and see.
So I scratched and I was a winner!! Now, my stepdad (Roger), in his infinite wisdom said “Wait, this has to be a gimmick–they wouldn’t send out all these pamphlets to get people to come to their dealership if nobody won anything”. Common sense slap in the face. I didn’t care–I’ve never won anything like this and decided to take the chance anyway–so we went to the dealership Saturday morning.
Well, it was a HUGE sales event. And yes, the “flier/pamphlet” thing had successfully brought hundreds of people to the car lot. After I registered my name (so I could get some free food and be entered for a drawing they did daily for a prize) we walked over to the guy who looked at your number and sure enough, we won…$3 in gold coins. You see, one of the prizes said Up to $500 in gold coins (the others were a new Hyundai or $30,000, 60″ 3D TV, or $1000). Son of a! We were so mad (mostly at ourselves)! Gaaahhh! But at least we got a free lunch out of it.
So Sunday morning I checked my email and I had one from Hunter Automotive…and this is what it said:
Randi, it is my pleasure to tell you that we drew your name from all the registrations yesterday at Hunter Auto Group. Please call me or stop by to pick up your check for $1,000.
