Very typical gas-up yesterday afternoon. Gorgeous day here, had the top off to run a few errands.
As I'm pulling up to the pump guys is waving at my like crazy, I realize as I get closer that this is because the pump I'm pulling up to is out of service. So I quickly flipped it around and parked at the pump he was using (other side) and he looked like his best friend had just showed up on Christmas morning - this huge grin appeared on his face as I got out of my car
Him: So how much does a car who's steering wheel comes off cost a fella? (driving old work trcu)
Me: Oh far less than you'd think
Him: Yeah yeah, you're just being modest. So one house worth or two?
Me: Oh no no no, you're thinking Ferrari money, this is far more affordable
Him: (now a little annoyed) Ok, you don't have to kid a kidder and if you don't want to say no worries
Me: No really, mine was $45k used and I've spent about that much upgrading it
Him: Oh, ok, so it's half a house. Or hell nicer than some! I knew it was worth as much as a house (he's very proud of himself now)
Him: So who makes that house yer rollin' around in?
Me: Lotus, it's a Lotus Exige
Him: So that's some kind of Lamborghini isn't it?
Me: Yup, sure is. Enjoy your day (I was already back in the car pulling away).
That continues my streak - not once in 3 years of ownership have I just filled it up with on one speaking to me. Don't get me wrong - I love that about it, made my day yesterday.
(Thanks to Adeo for starting the new thread, hope no one was mad at me for suggesting it, seemed the old one was just way too long....)
