what a bonehead. He was doing "donuts?" with the Land Rover with his kids inside the vehicle? That's real intelligent. What a moron. First, the father is stupid is as stupid goes. And next, the salesman is another bonehead for allowing it to happen - double stupid is as stupid goes. I hope those poor children are OK. This father is a prime example of a parent who should be neutered for the sheer idiocy of his actions and never again allowed to reproduce to prevent passing of his "stupid" genes to any future offspring.

Wow - when I go to a dealership, they insist on coming with me, won't let me go over the speed limit, or take it onto side streets - I need to shop for a LR ;-)

Did he buy the car? I am sure the kids had a story to tell at school. I am sure the salesperson has quite a story as well. There really is no intelligent life form on this planet. What were you thinking??
