Default Had an interesting conversation with my boss today....

When I was getting in my car, I noticed my boss was parked next to me. He walked behind my car, and then stopped and stared at my rear window. I knew what was coming...

Matt (boss): So...you're in a BONNEVILLE club??? But you have an Impala???
Peter (me): Heh, yeah I used to own a Bonneville, but they're good guys so I still hang around...
Matt: So...that makes you a poser?
Peter: Heh, yeah I guess so
Matt: You're a Bonneville club poser? That'* pretty sad, man...
Peter: Hahaha, yeah, well, someday I'll get another Bonneville...
Matt: So, you're going to go from an Impala to a Bonneville? Do you have a thing for horribly made cars or something?
Peter: Dude, you drive a Nissan SUV, I get 30 mpg, and how much do you get??
Matt: Psh, whatever, man... Take it easy.

Just thought it was amusing

Oh no, he'* a cool guy, it was very light hearted. We were just kidding around. What sucks, though, is that after three and a half years he'* leaving the bank for Chase. I can't help but think if I had anything to do with it

The guy was smart to leave.......he probably heard the next round of company cars were going to be Impalas.

Everyone laughs when they discover that their a BC. They just don't understand what an L67 is capable of, nor care. Whatever I says.

None of my friends believe me that there was a BC even when I got the decals on the window. Then they saw the club a few times when they came over to my place and jumped on the internet and BC being my homepage

Then they thought I was nuts when we'd go somewhere and I see a Bonneville in the parking lot and I sprint over and put a card in the window
