    Without being there to hear how things are said, one never knows.

    I totally agree and I'm always trying harder to be nice. I thought I was being funny when I responded that way (and was very nice to the guy IIRC,) but it was one of those things where it sounded funny inside my head....but not as funny when I let it out -lol!

    My VIN:    I respect my vin enough not to whore it out among the masses.

    Just today I had a kid who just got through with cancer treatment approach me and started gushing over the car. He was pretty knowledgeable and even had a DeLorean brochure that he kept on him. He then stated it had a 2.58 PRV and that's when I remembered Rich's no nonsense approach and I unloaded on his azz. "HOW DARE YOU SAY SOMETHING SO STUPID! GO, GET OUTTA HERE AND TAKE YOUR IV STAND WITH YOU!" His mom was sobbing (probably because she was so embarrassed over her son's idiotic statement) and I retreated to my car for a final Richesque move, I smashed his teddy bear under my tire as I left....confident that I had indeed properly educated yet another fan.

    Thanks Rich, your experience has given us all a shining example of ambassadorship!

    LMAO You bastard -lol! I'm very nice to people! I challenge anyone here to claim they never said something that missed the mark.

    Now my feelings are hurt and I feel victimized...and you're mean! *sniff*

    Taking it so seriously? Nah, not at all. Anything on this thread is mostly just the equivalent of co-workers in the lunchroom on break talking about dumb stuff at their jobs. We all get that it's just people breaking the ice and saying hello in their own way. Like the pretty girl analogy you made and having heard the same line a million times. All the correction-Nazi stuff got born via the Internet and usually stays there. I don't do the crossover from Internet to the real world on things like that. There's no point.

    This one was dumb but I liked it. Contractor at work told me he had seen a delorean with the ass end burnt out and I immediately thought "oh here we go" and he followed with "when they looked at it they found out he set the time machine to 2020"

    Not a stupid comment but it was the first time I have heard this.

    Guy in his 30's to 40's asked what kind of car it was. I told him and he said "Never heard of it".

    He might have been trying to troll but he was nice, said he thought it looked cool. If he was messing with me, I didn't give him any satisfaction. I said thanks and never broke my stride. Rich is rubbing off on me I guess.

    Maybe this should be in the positive stories thread because it was more hilarious than obnoxious but I had a guy come up to me in my driveway and offer to trade me one of these for my car: maxresdefault.jpg

    He actually seemed like a pretty nice dude and he was older and knew one of my coworkers so he might have been legit but it was the first time that's happened. I didn't take him up on his offer

    Random guy at a gas station asked, "What's the difference between JZD's DeLorean and a regular DeLorean? John's DeLorean weighs one kilo more." I chuckled.
