Introduction
A Gemini - describes me to a tee.
 
I was born in New York City, a baby-boomer. All I remember as a child was throwing things off our balcony and watching them hit the pavement. I never hit anybody. I became an Electrical Engineering major at a certain Ivy school in New Jersey. They had a great basketball team. I had this "thing" for gadgets and I wanted to see how they ticked. College was great for me...I partied a lot and studied sometimes, but was caught up in the humanitarian "movement" and decided that I could contribute more to the human race as a doctor, so I switched my major. My grades went down hill fast, but I did get accepted for medical school at a certain Tobacco Road institution. Of course, their basketball team sucked when I was there. Medical School was fun for me; I gained thirty pounds the first year because I always ate while I studied, and I was always studying. I took it all off again with my summer job teaching tennis. When it came time to pick a specialty, I decided to become a pathologist because all the internists and surgeons I knew were too busy to play tennis. My first autopsy nearly changed my mind. I soon realized I had no useful skills at all, so, of course, I joined the military, where I immediately became a department chairman, and hospital deputy commander. The military, surely, knew what they were doing. After nearly 20 years of marching in formation, sitting in closed tents with live tear gas, one wartime deployment, and a lot of overnight "field exercises," and, oh yes, some pathology, I got a big promotion to Colonel and was transferred to the military's medical school, to share my knowledge with bright, young, impressionable military physicians-in-training. When my military tour was finally over, I “retired" to a certain South Florida medical school, where I currently “inspire" bright, young, impressionable Florida medical students. Somehow, along the way, I had become a self-proclaimed Jedi master, computer aficionado and medical informatics guru.

August 2013: After 10 years of driving my MB E320, I figured it was time to trade in for a new model with all the upgraded technology, performance, and safety advances. I could have chosen to visit several dealerships, but I chose MB of Delray. My salesperson, Mr. Joseph Taylor, spent a significant amount of time with me, on two occasions, answering my questions, accompanying me on test drives, and negotiating the final price. I can honestly say that he and the team were the most transparent as any I have ever had, and we consummated the deal a few weeks ago. The only negative part of the whole experience was the 15 minutes I spent with the "no personality" cashier writing the final check, out in the open showroom. She showed no interest in the transaction at all! Update no. 1: When I purchased the car, I wanted to add a MB sunshield. I, in fact, asked for it a half dozen times during the negotiations, verbally, and via e-mail. I wanted to make sure that upon delivery of the car I had the sunshield, especially since it was August! I was completely ignored! No one even addressed the sunshield - it seems all they were interested in in collecting their check and selling me thousands of dollars of extra "options," like an extra "Dent Policy." Finally, after months of asking, I confronted the salesperson about it - his answer: "Oh, just go over to the Parts Department and you can buy one if you like!" Seriously!!!! Update no. 2: 8 months after the purchase, the following April, I found a nasty dent in my front bumper one day at a local parking lot. I called MBDelray to schedule a repair and make sure the "Dent Policy" the dealership sold me for $400 at the time of purchase covered the repair. What a shock when I found out that the policy is practically worthless - it only covers dents to metal parts where no paint has chipped! This repair, I was told, would be out of my pocket - cost $1000 to repair a small 1/2 inch dent!!!!! At the time of purchase, I was also told that whenever I brought the car into Service - as long as I made an appoitnment - I could request a loaner car. Another misrepresentation it seems!!!! It turns out you only can get a loaner for scheduled maintenance, not body work!!!!! You can imagine how disappointed I was to go through this experience. I couldn't see spending $1000 to repair a 1/2 inch scrape on the bumper, so I opted for a "free" touch up paint job. The scrape ended up covered with new paint, but the rough-edged hole was still plainly visible. Seriously? Update no. 3: The above after-purchase experiences, combined with the anecdotal information from a close friend of mine who is a local celebrity, who wanted to buy a car there and then walked away after being treated rudely at this dealership, has convinced me that this is not necessarily a customer-friendly dealership - at least for me - and that they may engage in predatory sales tactics that diminish the ownership experience. I still remember the four-hour ordeal when I came to pick up the car - a team of three "Finance" people kept hammering away at extra options they insisted I should buy, in addition to the Pre-Paid Maintenance and MBrace packages that I had intended to purchase.
