I love hearing from readers, not as much as I love wine, but a VERY close second!

Thanks!

Kids in the Office

I made the mistake of asking the guys I work with what their dream vehicle would be if money weren’t an option.

I naively hoped to hear they’d have a hybrid car, or convert a vehicle to natural gas in order to help lower their fuel usage.

I’ve never been so wrong.

“I’d have a Ferrari. No wait a jet. Or better yet I could drive my Ferrari onto my jet plane and use both.”

The other guy thought for a minute and then said, “Yeah, that would be cool, but I’d rather live on a tour bus. How great would that be? I could hire someone to drive me around. I’d have everything I needed. But no jet, I’d have a helicopter on top of the bus in case I needed it.”

I was trying to think of a polite way to tell them what idiots they were, when I heard them talking about jumping the tour buses. I changed the subject instead. It’s impossible to argue conservation with a room full of eight-year-old man boys.

  • Tis a shame to see man-boys so criminally under-developed.

    For instance: why no tank? An armored vehicle would immediately the logical choice. How, praytell, could one destroy an entire city with a tour bus? Clearly, with a tank one would never pay a cent for natural gas, but merely aim the turrets squarely at the face of the gas-station owner, and bada-bing-bing sister, you’ve got yourself free gas!

    Fret not child. Some of us have been fully developed for years. I myself reached my peach maturity at the age of five. True, my two-year-old puberty was a bit of a shock to the nannys (one will never forget bath time!), but I have, and will always be, the most adulty adult you have ever laid eyes on. :-D

  • I just want one of the Hooverboards from Back to the Future 2.

  • I don’t care what anybody says. Trollpop is frickin hilarious!
    Bath time. ha ha ha ha ha!

    I work with older men who think they know it all… and man boys.. and they both frustrate me to no end.

    As you have pointed out – with man boys you don’t get the answers you hope for.

    Well with older men, you don’t even have to ask the questions – and they give you answers!

  • Your man boys are another reason for me to love my rednecks so much. They went out and got motorcycles to lessen their gas consumption, using the money savings ($120 bucks to fill up a pick-up truck!?!) to rationalize their new toys to their wives.

  • Who wants a wussy hybrid anyway? I mean, you did say money was no object right? You opened yourself up to that one.

  • Firstly, I could NEVER and I mean NEVER have a blog about me and my life. I am much too private of a person and am just sort of in aw of those who do. And, I rarely comment, reply or note about one or the comments to such. All that said, I must respond to “THAT MAN”…or we assume it is a man. hmmmm
    I am not being mean!!!!!!!!!!

    Trop could be drop dead fuckable and is hiding behind a weird personality. UGH!! Or he could be drop dead weird and never been fucked

    He is one of those people I would have to tell to “shut-up” after a bit..just too chatty cathy for me.

    So Trop…. we are all curious

    Age
    Height
    Weight
    Sex
    Hair Color
    Body Hair?
    Bath?
    Virgin?
    Employed?
    40lK?
    Do you live at home?

    Lets pretend you are wooing us women…let us know the important stuff.

    hmmmmmmm

    me

  • I would never ask a man about their dream car because I have a feeling I would be BORED TO TEARS

  • that is why you are cordially invited to my housewarming party in september, where I will be introducing you to aiden’s cute doctor friends. you can generally count on them to act (at least) 12 years old.

  • You should hear my 9 year old and his 45 year old father talk about such subjects. You just have to give up and accept that they are cute. Or pretend that they are cute. Depends on the day.

  • You asked them about their dream vehicle, not their practical vehicle. I sure hope people don’t have fantasies about owning something as mundane as a Prius. I would hardly call them idiots..

  • THIS FOOL WAS NOT MYSELF! HE IS A LIAR, A DECEITFUL LIAR WHO MASKS HIMSELF AS ME! I AM UTTERLY OUTRAGED! BANISH THEE HENCEFORTH AND LET NOT A SOUL IMITATE ME!

    I AM SHOCKED — NAY — OUTRAGED THAT SUCH A CREATURE MAY FREELY WALK GOD’S GREEN EARTH!

    However, in reply to a certain Beaches, I have responded to all questions given me. You will find them inside my Web Log. I trust that I have been satisfactory.

  • hahahah i feel your pain.. i work with men… so many men.. and half the time they act like bloody babies!

  • This question makes me think of a game we played in elementary school,and I always picked that I would want a limo…but never occurred to me that I would be the one driving it. Which would be lame.

  • I would have a 1957 Porsche Speedster. And I just turned 11!

  • Trop…. Good grief. I am a girl.

    Just teasing you.

    Have a great day.

    me

  • Hmmm, I would have to say a unimposing scooter to ride to either my Millennium Falcon or Magical ET Bike. Or just have Mary Poppin’s fly me around with her umbrella.

    Other notable mention forms of transportation:
    - Heather Grahams VW Rabbit from License to Drive
    - Willy Wonka’s Glass Elevator
    - The helicopter from Airwolf (it was like Knight Rider…but a helicopter)

  • Trollpop’s comments are exhausting.

  • Are you serious? You asked someone what their dream vehicle would be, and expected some politically correct smug-gasm? My dream vehicle goes fast, probably flies, and looks cool. I know I’m supposed to say “I just want a bicycle made from biodegradable recycled kleenex used previously to wipe the tears of spotted owls orphaned by evil white developers” but…no.

  • beaches, I believe trollpop’s comment was to the poster before him who used his name, and not to you.

  • Ah forgive me Beaches for not making this distinction clearer! My CAPSLOCKed rage was reserved for the “Trollpop Janglestein” impersonator above me. To you I have nicely written on my own blog, an answer to all desired questions.
