Not Happy OMFG What have you just said my car was GRRRRRR!!

Driving home and I come up behind a bus parked up collecting...there is others not getting on...etc

Anyway there is a small boy I would say around 8 -10 years old with his mum and dad at the stop - boy cops a look at my car...and says 'cor thats a smart car dad....what car is that...'

Me trying to look ultra cool and pretending not to really notice - but quietly smug.

When dad says 'I think it's a Citroen....'

Thank **** the bus moved off and I had to follow - or I could have got out of the car and tore him limb from limb...

FFS - a ****ing Citroen

Isn't this a rant? Therefore should it not be in the rant room?

Re: OMFG What have you just said my car was GRRRRRR!!

Don't be annoyed - people still think that Citroen design interesting and quirky cars (think DS) despite the fact that for the last 20 years they haven't. So - if he didn't know much about who has decent designs he picked the first "individual" car maker he could think of.

It could have been worse. They could have said "I think its a Ford"

You can't blame him Chris some Citroens did have GT on the back, the AX for instance

Well the boy's first instinct was to blurt out that he thought it was a Smart car, which is even worse than a Citroen.

Should I tell you all that a workman entered our office once and asked if someone could move the Skoda. He was talking about my 156

He'd probably been lurking in the Cool Wall
lounge and been confused by some of the
dubious pro citroen posting that's gone on there.v



He obviously didn't heed Mr Samuel Clemens:
