Then you guys run for 4-5hrs, after we've left, yet when the next shift comes in, they're only 2-300 cars below system fill. Which is pathetic.. If you guys were running anything close to normal, then we wouldn't be able to make up a 300 car deficit that fast. I mean we're sitting around less than 4hrs in, waiting on carriers to come back from the paint shop. Furthermore, having the banks near capacity for over a week is indicative of a problem in itself. We're never able keep over 2000 cars in the banks! It's just not realistic when things are running right..

Who knew? I've been stalking this thread for months collecting info, following in the excitement, and waiting for my moment to pounce and put an order in. Never put that together. I'm in Dover and am about to start hunting down a dealer to work with on ordering what will be my first Jeep, similar to the one you ordered....V8 Overland. Most likely will go max steel ORAII with indigo/brown interior though not for sure on exterior and interior colors yet.

Anyhow, who/where did you order your Jeep from?

So you speak this language also.

We were going to make it a dollar two ninety eight, but thought that was too much!

So why does the guy on my block who knows I work at Chrysler need to know when I'll be coming home with an extra $2k on such and such date? Or the guy at the bowling alley who's always trying to sell me some bs, who also knows I work at Chrysler. My, "man I ain't got it right now" line aint gonna work that day! Hell, why does my fiancé even need to know I'm getting an extra $2k!??? It's bad enough that she feels entitled to a chunk of my tax return, and now that we're getting profit sharing checks again, I have to pony up on that too? Don't get me wrong, I'm all about transparency and sharing, but I'm beginning to learn that women aren't! They just want YOU to disclose everything. So screw transparency, and I'll share what I want!

Geez Louise! Talk about taxation without representation! I mean, it never fails!.. EVERYTIME I get a bonus, I get seduced, yet ultimately shook down like the boys in blue do the wanna be gangsters.

It's just not fair. I demand a recount!

I mean justice..

I mean... ummm.. privacy. Yea, that's it! PRIVACY!!!
It doesn't bother me, it's been going on forever.

Besides, it's not rocket science to calculate our profit sharing check using PUBLIC information. Our contract is available online, so are Chrysler's earnings reports.

Marchionne announced it in the press release, so that made things even easier.

I'm sure the local gas station and store bums will be in full effect for the first few days after distribution. I'll just tell them what I always tell them. "I don't have any spare change."

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

In addition, if they mention the fact that they know about our check, which HAS happened to me before, I'll just repeat the line again, emphasizing the word "SPARE".

You're right.. And my finance is the type who would be able to find this out.. However, I'm mainly talking about the people who consider what the news tells them to be news, and want to mooch... I mean, I don't even like people talking about stuff like that at the barber shop or at family gatherings or whatever. "Hey I heard you guys are getting $xxxx?" I usually reply, "naw man, I ain't heard that." I mean you'd do better asking me how much my car note is, or my mortgage. And those two just get ppl a blank stare from me. Don't count my damn money!

Hey, for all of you in the Detroit area -- very sorry to hear of the big pileup on I-75 and loss of life. Be careful out there.

First of all, you can't have those colors. We don't want two the same running around.

I went with Brandywine of Smyrna. I had stopped awhile back at Holbren. They took all my info, then never got back to me. IG Burton pissed me off, although I've dealt with them before with no problem.

I am not one to chase prices. I felt the 1% under invoice is a fair, but not great price. I did negotiate the trade in, and they came up $1,000. I am dealing with Dan Wooley, who seems to be as knowledgeable as any salesman, about the vehicle.

I also took time to visit their service department, just to take a look around. They were fine with having me walk around to see what was going on. The place was clean, orderly, with no screaming customers in sight. That's usually a plus.

@kjf.. Just went over to a local news station's site to read more about that.. Found another story that read, "Pastor stiffs waiter: 'I give God 10%.' Man refuses to pay 18% gratuity despite large party."

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

BTW: I guess I'm also used to it because bums would see us over at my old job getting off work, KNOWING we had a pocket full of tips, and would bombard us at the stores and gas stations.

Bum: I know you can help me out today, I saw how many cars ya'll had over there!
Me: I don't have any spare change. $55 on pump 4 please. *pulls out wad of cash*.

BTW: I quit that job on Saturday after almost 6 years.
