Just saw this one in the paper today. Figured it has a place here. On a finer note a co-worker spotted the Metro in the parking lot at work and as soon as he came in he said, "That car has got to be yours." I think people are now stereotyping me as a "GasSaver" person......
Yesterday, I started back at my old office after being a home-based/contractor for a few years. They were like,
"Do you still have that EVO, man that car was fast".
"Nope, I've changed my ways".
"Yup, I'm into efficiency now"
"Ah, it looks like you got Married since the last time we saw you "
"Yup, but that's not the whole story..."
The conversation goes into GS, etc. They looked shocked and disappointed, like I was the company-sponsored race driver (which I guess I kinda was). They'll soon conform (insert the "Dr. Evil" laugh here, and that pinky finger gesture). I'll have people playing "Fantasy Hypermiling" people you know it.
