had to share this...
First you gotta see this ad to understand what I'm talking about http://video.aol.com/video-detail/id/1212746956
. Nevermind it's about Fiat, but the message is of utmost importance.
That being said let's lay out the facts. Last weekend my best friend called to invite me on a short trip, hiking, around the city, in some forest to cool off the summer's heat. He recently got a new car - please try not to laugh... too hard - a kia cee'd so he's very anxious to drive his new car just about everywhere. I said ok let's go, but I'll come driving my bella, I ain't gonna be a passenger (especially in a cee'd... for chrissakes I have a standard to maintain). On the road, driving behind me, he called me on the cell just to let me know how beautiful my 166 looks from the back, how it sits on the road, etc; a true connoisseur, what can I say ?
When we arrived his girlfriend, which by the way is some sort of a gold digger, born and raised outside town in some sort of a poor village, having never owned a car... well not even a bicycle for that matter, but that's another story and which by the way doesn't stand me 'cause she's afraid I might open up my friend's eyes about her, came closer to look at my bella (having never seen her) and said in a tone, like making a concession: "weeeeell, if you look closely enough you can say it's somewhat nice"... NICE ??? WTF
At first I wanted to kick her in the face, punch her to jelly (you gotta understand me, I was raving mad), but then after I cooled off a bit I thought about how she's never gonna have a car like that, and after a while listening to her how THEIR [sic!
] car is a true automobile, unlike others, I understood something: she was eaten up with envy and from that moment on I smiled at every remark she made, knowing full well that I have my bella and she has nothing...
On a side note and strangely enough she did like my previous car, a BMW 525 but I suppose that was because the BMW meaning for her was social status, which she'll never attain anyhow.
Oh and did I mention I hate gold diggers ?
