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.
