So, my b/f has been fishing around for a new car. He can do whatever he wants. Lately, he thinks he will be getting one of those lease cars. I said ok do whatever you want.
Anyway, he just called me and very excitedly said he found a great deal on a lease. If you pay them $3000 for down payment, you can rent a car for $79/month for a 2 year contract. If you don't pay the $3k downpayment, the regular price is $150/month for a 2 year contract.
I was driving, so I couldn't do much precise math. But a quick run-through of the numbers told me this was a bad idea. I told him to get out a calculator and do a quick estimate. So, he multiplied 79 by 24 and came up with 1896. So, the total would be 4896 that he will be paying for the lease car.
I then told him to multiply 150 by 24. Came up with 3600.
He said "oh" and hung up.
I'm so disappointed and sad right now. Have I chosen the wrong guy?
