Not Paying For a Seatbelt

Ok so I had to share this because I thought it was rediculous. My In Laws are out at their dealership purchasing their Chevy Malibu(Yeah I know, But They Love Chevy's, Anywyas) So As they are talking to their salesperson they explain to me that they over hear another customer who is becoming a bit angered at the fact that the dealer is refusing to remove the seatbelt from the car he wants to purchase.
The guy then goes on to explain that he should not have to pay for a seatbelt that he is never going to use, and that if he isnt going to use it then it shouldnt be in the car and he doesnt want to pay for the searbelt either, after several times of te dealership explaining it is against the law for them to remove the seatbelt and the idiot getting more angry about them not doing what he wants he finally tells the salesman he is no longer interested in the car and leaves..

..what kind of numb skull goes to a dealer demanding this...thats like saying I dont like the passenger side windshielf wiper..please remove it and I dont want to pay for it...Some people are just fucking morons...

Seatbelts save lives

Why can't he remove it? Just use some scissors!



I hope karma throws him out the window and onto the busy freeway if he ever gets into an accident!

Maybe that was just his stupid ass way of walking away. Maybe he's the kinda person who feels pressured and usually ends up signing the deal no matter what it is so he hatched this brilliant scheme????

Haha that's pretty stupid. Now my question is whether he's referring to the drivers seatbelt or the others?

He probably isn't going to use the ashtrays, either...does he want those removed and the price deducted as well?

That's pretty stupid yo. That's like going for a driver's license and telling the people that there's no point in having a driver's test because you don't plan on following the rules of the road anyway.
