smart car. Dumb Questions. Part 2.

Part 1 here.

Aren’t you scared to ride in that thing?
Only if you were driving.

I wouldn’t be caught dead in one of those!
Good. I’m running out of room for the bodies.

How much does it cost?
I explain the base price, mid model {point to mine} price and convertible price.
But how much does YOURS cost?
I’d love to say, “None of your business.”
But usually it ends up something along the lines of, “I’d tell ya but then I’d have to kill ya.” Then I wink.

I’ll trade you both my cars right now for yours.
Why don’t you go to the dealership and make them that offer?
Once it was two beaters that put together wouldn't be worth half of a smart. The other time it was a beater and gas hog that was on the verge of being a beater.

How did you get one of those?!?
I got on the list last year.
Why is there a waiting list?
Because everybody wants one!

Is that one of those $2,000 cars?
Yes. But there’s a limited number at that price. Best go get one at the DFW Tata dealership now!

How many miles will it go?

I don't know. I'm only at 3,500 and I'm still using it.

I still like the one I saw on this site on another article:
When asked if it is an electric car (while at a gas pump, no less)...yes it is electric, but the generator burns a lot of gas!!!

I love Blue Collar Crew too! I had the cassette of "Here's Your Sign" when it first came out. Left in in the car one day a few years back and it melted. And I've always related to the redneck ones. Some of those hit way too close to home. ~winks~ I've never been one to deny that I'm certainly a sm@rt@$$ to the Nth degree. Most times it's just whatever comes to mind first. Sometimes it's those jewels like the gas station one you just wrote that I might just have to tuck away and remember for the perfect opportunity.

These remind me of the classic and hilarious comedy routine by Bill Engvall... give the responses followed by "here's your sign!" Or even a twist on Jeff Foxworthy's "you might be a redneck if..." Instead, "you might be a smarta$$ if... you're asked if you wanna race and you say 'heck no, you'd surely beat me to the nearest gas station!" Yeah... I love the blue collar comedy crew!

Know anyone out there that needs a Smart 10 radio (with the 6 CD changer)?
We are now the proud owners of 2 smart cars - one coupe and one convertible (my wife, of course, has the convertible) and she put a nov system in hers os we have the radio and speakers we will sell very reasonably. Now we TWICE AS SMART!!!

I love it when others think like I do!

Some guy asked if my Smart Car was powered by a lawn mower engine. I figured since he was being a smart a**, so would I. So I told him ,"No, it's powered by two squirrels on a treadmill." That shut him up.

I hear most of those myself too, Joan. I like your reply to the Prius comment.
Comment by Joan on July 23, 2008 at 9:26pm
I was glad to hear other people get weird questions. Some of my favorites are "is that car legal. can you drive it on the freeway?". One eight year old said," Wow, mom look at that car." She replied that it wasn't a car. Huh? A lot of people ask the price. I just quote the usual amount and then tell them it's a 2yr wait and that normally shuts them up. I had some lady ask the mpg and when I told her she snubs her nose and says that she has a Prius and gets better mileage. Hey, mine is cheaper by at least 10,000. Her mouth dropped and she walked away. I like some of your funny come backs.

^^^That's just fabulous. I damn near just died laughing.

I don't consider myself so much hilarious as an intolerant sm@rt@$$. Offends some folks but others seem to find the humor in it. ~winks~
