The Hinman Family – Tom, Shelia and the Triple H’s
Thomas, Shelia and their daughters: Hannah, Hailey and Heather Hinman (the triple H’s) from Hazel Green, WI came in the other day to upgrade to a more spacious vehicle. While the girls played, the parents took care of business. Soon they were ready to roll out with their new set of wheels, but I couldn’t let them go without letting the world hear their story!
Hey guys! Thanks for waiting up to do an interview with me. What brought you into Runde’s today?
We needed a car that would fit our family and wanted to stay local for the purchase.
What led you to Runde’s instead of a different dealership?
Shelia: I’ve lived around this area my whole life and know Runde’s to be a good place by reputation.
What vehicle did you end up buying?
We got a 2008 Chevy Impala. We needed a family car and it’ll work out great.
Your sales person was Al Kloft, what did you think of Al ?
He was great, very helpful and nice to the kids.
I see that they got some goodies to play with while they waited.
Yeah, Heather loved playing with the stuff. They gave us monkey’s, footballs, coloring books, coffee mugs, free hot chocolate…
Hailey: I want some hot chocolate tonight!
That sounds really good, actually…
If you were to rank your experience on a scale of 1-10, what would you give it?
Probably about a 9.
You guys ready for Christmas?
All three: Oh yeah!
Got your Christmas list all done?
Hailey: I haven’t done that yet!
Tom: I’m heading back to Iraq and won’t be back ‘till January so I guess I’ll be missing it this year.
Hannah: We’ll have to have grandma help us with the Christmas tree…
What do you like to do as a family?
The girls and I have been hunting for the last week. We like camping, playing ball, going to water parks.
Where do you go camping?
Just in the area. Galena, Potosi, Blackhawk, Governor Dodge Park –places like that.
Are all of you in school?
All three: Yep!
Where do you all go?
Shelia: Hannah is still in preschool.
Hailey: 3rd grade!
Heather: 5th grade at the Southwestern Elementary School.
You like going to school?
Hailey: Sure do!
Tom and Shelia, what do you do for a living?
I work at Cuttingham and Butler and she works at B.L. Murray just down the road from here.
Hailey: I work at school!
Do you have a favorite movie Hannah?
Yeah… High School Musical (Hannah gave a big smile with her answer).
That’s all I had for you guys, I don’t want to keep you waiting any longer, do you have anything else you’d like to add?
Shelia: It was a great experience. I don’t like buying cars, it gives me a headache, but this was a good experience.
