Loyalty to the company

I was amused a few days ago as I was trimming my plants. A Hyundai Accent car came into our village and the one driving alighted and seemed looking for someone so I asked him if I could be of help. He was looking for a new neighbor of ours who recently bought a brand new Toyota Avanza AUV. I told him that the guy he was looking for had just driven out from the village. He replied that our neighbor had just texted and told him that they'll be back in a few minutes so I continued with what I was doing. I was amused to find out that the guy was delivering an accessory for the Toyota Avanza. This reminded me of the lady manager of the Isuzu dealership from which we bought our new Isuzu MU-X last September. She owns and drives a compact Mitsubishi Mirage car. Another neighbor of mine, who sometimes drives to work too, the fairly new Ford Ecosport of his father, works with the local dealership of Suzuki cars and is, in fact, a sales rep of the said dealership. I'm really amused with these people and ask myself "Are these people really serious with their work?". They may have their valid reasons but, surely, prospective customers might raise an eyebrow when they see these guys with their cars.

Went to the Isuzu dealership yesterday to have my door switch fixed and had the chance to ask the lady manager why she's driving a Mitsubishi car. She told me she's been with Mitsubishi for 5 years so now I see the reason why :)

Yes, I agree. Although they may have valid reasons, it's not a good look. Particularly with cars, it would be better for them to 'walk their talk'. I think the same in many ways to clothing shops. If you were someone who worked in a shop that sold jeans, for example, it would seem good sales to actually wear the jeans you sell, so that you can confidently tell your customers how good they really are.
