The Immigrant and the Car Salesman There was once a boy named Petros who immigrated to the United States from Greece His family was very poor so they came on a ship and took a train to Chicago where they thought they could find work When Petros turned eighteen he decided to move to Lynn MA where he settled in the Greek community He began to work hard and saved all of the money he earned He married and together with his wife opened a small produce store The business prospered and Petros soon became a wealthy man He was a very simple man and dressed humbly always wearing his old hat when he went out After a few years Petros decided that he wanted a car and he went to a Cadillac dealership The owner of this dealership was aware that Petros was a rich man and knew about his successful business He asked Petros what he wanted to buy and Petros left the dealership with a new Cadillac Over the years Petros came to buy many different cars from the dealership Many years later when Petros was an old man and his daughter had taken over the produce store he put on his old hat and decided to go back to the Cadillac dealership When he arrived at the dealership a new salesman came out to help him Petros asked him the price of one of the new models in the showroom The salesman looked at the old man with his foreign accent and wearing his old beat-up hat and told him that it was very expensive and that he would show him a different one that was much more affordable Petros told him that he still wanted it The salesman insisted that the car was much too expensive
