    My brother and sister-in-law decided on what car they wanted and how much they wanted to spend.  She called a dealer and said, "We want to buy an ABC for $XYZ.  If you have one, we'll come in for it.  Otherwise, we'll look elsewhere."

    After a few minutes, the salesman told her that, yes, they had one at her price and she could come in for it.

    Then she said, "We don't want any extras, add-ons, or special deals.  If you try to sell us anything other than this car, we will turn around immediately and walk out.  Do you understand me?"

    "Yes."

    They went in, signed the papers, and drove away.

    "If they give you lined paper, write the other way." (Juan Ramon Jimenez)
