Since I'm a mailman here at school, I guess I can take any packages I want to right? After all, the recieving warehouse and my boss will "eat it," and I'll never have to take responsibility for my own actions, it all works out.

No, it was stealing. Did you go ask your boss if you could "trade" parts, did you ask your service manager, or perhaps the supervisor at least? Yeah, "traded" is a light term there buddy.

Actually the used car manager told me that as long as there was a tailgate on the truck it's fine.

Well damn dude, next time your dealership gets a GT40 in why don't you just trade the keys, I'm sure no one will mind.

When I worked at a dealership the only thing I stole from trade ins was the crap ppl left inside them. And the managers didn't care if we took that stuff anyway. We all used to buy sodas with all the change that came outta trade ins. I grabbed a few cds that way too but never body parts or stuff thats worth anything to the dealership. Depending on your position I would have talked to a manager before I just went ahead and took something like that.

You sound bitter. There are perks to every job. This just happens to be a perk to mine. If I were stealing I wouldn't be stupid enough to post on here. I do wish we had a GT40 here though that would be nice.

And did you ask before or after?

From your first post, it sounds like you never asked anyone until you had already done it.

There's a difference between "perk" and immorality.

Man, gotta love the idiots on this board. I knew what he did...unless you have worked at a dealership, you would never understand. Dealers don't pay people for aftermarket accessories, they don't care what condition it is in...they just pay the owner POOP and that's that. It doesn't matter to them when they buy the car as a trade-in what condition it is in (for the most part, i dont need a 4 year old to give me some extreme example now, thanks though in advance) so it won't even matter that he swapped it.

Even the cars that don't get wholesaled they generally don't care if you swap stuff. My manager let me do it all the time...in fact he had a storage bin full to the top with stereo stuff he had taken over the years and it didn't make a damn difference.

Get off his case and remove the telephone poles from your asses.

You should read what you type sometime. You're a real idiot. You're the kind of person making it harder on the rest of us because you pull this crap. Grow up and start acting like a responsible adult with some values, or did you fail to learn those too?

I already told you the story, so why's it in advance? Before you start accusing people of being as young and immature as you, you might want to get an IQ bigger than the age you're talking about.

hey trenton I'm not tryingto play devils advocate or take sides, but your mailman example is slightly off, think of it this way:you have a box that you are gonna mail something in and one of the corners is slightly crushed in, and then a delivery of office supplies comes into your post office in the same size box and is undamaged. where's the harm in you using that box. sure the cost of a box is different than a tailgate but it was your analogy to begin with. it's served its original purpose and now is being re-used. if he just pulled up to some ranger in a walmart parking lot and DEBO'd a gate that would be a mega ******* thing, but thats not how it went down.

As a ranger owner you hodl the tailgate at a much higher value than the actual owner of that tailgate being the dealer, its understandable it angers you but it's just not that big of a deal to dealer. Stealing is wrong, but there is grey area in this situation like it or not.

let me throw something out there-----think of this you bought your truck off a lot after owning it for a while you notice some parts dont match up...and come to find out that some one "traded" parts off if it with ****ty one's. how would you feel.....would that "grey" area be acceptable...?

Ok sue me there's one loophole in my analogy and I get called out . . . it's the point that matters.

And I will make a deal about it if I want to. It's jackholes like this that ruin the whole thing for the rest of us, and if they get away with it once, then they'll think hey, since I haven't been caught, I'll just do it again.

I can see why society is pissed at younger people, we set our own bad stereotypes. We have tons of people on here that don't do crap like this, and the couple that would make it harder for the one's that don't becuase of it. Stealing is wrong, whether you work at a dealership or not, you should've learned that in kindergarten.

whats the point in argueing. he said he had permission to trade tailgates, so it wasn't stolen, just traded. the dealer will still make money no matter what (even though that's besides the point). nothing was ruined for everyone else.. unless you're thinking of the lost business for the body shop that would have charged him an arm and a leg to repair a dented tailgate.

Not much point to arguing I guess, obviously there's no one with a concious left.

what's there to argue about. a truck was traded in. the dealer got it for what they needed/wanted. he asked to trade tailgates with his own truck. used car manager said ok. trade was made. all are happy. truck is being sold as wholesale because it was beat to hell to begin with. everyone from the guy who traded it in, to the used car manager, gets out happy. end of story. where's the guilt.. or bad in it.
