I was at the Chev dealership for a few hours, figuring out how I was going to get away with my new trucks (work truck, play truck), and the Salesman I was talking to the whole day about options... I knew the options better then he did, but he was giving me such a great deal on the trucks, and was pretty good working out the fiancing for my work truck... Well... the key point he had to mension was the fact that the trucks had Heated mirrors... And finally I broke down and took him out to the trofeo to show him that my 12year old car had HEATED MIRRORS... Then he just about **** himself when I told him it had a heated windshield

(I'll have to remember that one....)

I do have a really funny quote/comment... but it requires telling a story... enjoy


My friend Ryan is driving my gf Jen home and another friend.
I get a phone call like 10mins after they leave.... it'* Jen.
Ryan hit a giant piece of wood on the highway and blew a tire. Jen doesn't think Ryan can handle it.

So I drive out.... good thing they warned me about the wood, otherwise I would have hit it for sure too....

It'* like 11:30pm... cold.. and **** pouring rain.

I pull up behind Ryans car... he'* out trying to change the tire.
I notice that he'* only about 50ft from going under an overpass (the highway he just came off of).

I asked him... "Why didn't you pull under the overpass so that we won't get wet?"
His reponse... "I didn't want to ruin the tire" (I hope he mean't rim)
I said... "But it'* only like 50ft?" He just stares at me.

Ok.. alright... he'* already got the jack under the car, and the tire is completely flat.
The two girls are currently still in his car.... I suggest they go wait in mine, so we can jack it up easier, and safer.

Ryan jacks it up and I goto get the spare out of the trunk.
Ryan looses the lugnuts and.... here it comes....

... trys to peel the tire off the rim with his hands.....

I asked him "What are you trying to do??"
He said "take the tire off.. why?"
I said... "no no.. we have to take the rim off and put the spare on"
He said ..."oh.. I thought you just take the tire off... I thought that black rim was to hold the shape of the spare tire"

I wasn't sure if I should smack him... or fall over laughing....
smackhim. Smack him now!!

At a stereo competition, talking with a guy who put a powerdyne blower on is 00 Z28, someone over hears our discusion about superchargers, walks up and tells us he put a supercharger on his 02 Alero,

I ask him, What kind of blower he put on?
He answers, no it dosen't have a blower, it'* a supercharger!
Me and the Z28 guy have a little chuckle,

Next question, ever take it to the track?
He answers yeah runs 12'* @ 140mph

What other mods you got
He anwsers CAI and Flow master mufflers and that all
HA,HA,HA,HA,HA


Rest of the days joke,

While out driving one night with a chick in my 1985 Olds Cutlass which is my show car I pulled up to a Monte SS. Now, keep in mind that my car runs8.9'* in the 1/8 and is very loud, and also a true Olds with a 350 olds engine. The kid rolls down his window yelling to try to get my attention over my loud exhaust. I finally see him and acknowledged him. The first thing out of his mouth was " That'* a nice Monte!". I then replied with the question"are you on crack? Better yet are you suffering from carbon monoixide poisioning" I didn't wait for a reply and took off like bat out of hell, just so he could see that my plate reads LOUDOLDS!

If we're going non-car related, due to my job, I could make this the longest thread in BC history with dumass customer comments/questions

A couple of favorites are:

Customers who purchase a firewall product, decide they don't like/need it after all and then call "Can't you just take this off of my computer for me?" Me: "Um, no, sorry. The whole point of a firewall is to prevent people from doing stuff like that..."

And a classic e-mail I have saved:

Quote:
You folks are priceless...
I've been trying for two weeks to cancel this order and get a refund without an ounce of luck!!!
Now you want to know if I want to buy something else???
Can anyone there spell *-E-R-I-V-C-E ???

hmm... i had just finished waxing some kid in his "top of the line really fast sports car" (93 or so Acura Integra LS), he asks to see under my hood so i pop it.

Him: Holy ****, is that stock? ::points to strut tower bar::
Me: Yup, 100% bone stock.
Him: Dude that'* why you won, your car is supercharged...
Me: kinda confused
Him: Maybe you didn't know it, but this is a supercharger. ::points at alternator::
Me: Umm... Nope, that'* an alternator, I would know if my car was supercharged and it would say "Supercharged" right here. ::pointing to the spot where it would say Supercharged on the engine cover::
Him: Man, you don't know what your talking about, your car'* supercharged.
