When snobby bums ask for money, then give you a dirty look when you say "no."

How about snobby car salesmen? These people act like their father built the car with his bare hands, meanwhile they drove there in a Kia. I'm sorry, are you Ferdinand Porsche in the flesh? No? Then act like you want to sell me something, not like you're doing me a favor by talking to me.

I haven't been to the office in over 5 years. I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss it at times.

Yes... the uneducated snobby attitude is hilarious at best.

My friend just posted this in Facebook, which does remind me... The worst is when you finally get your chance, the subject has been changed a couple of times so it'll too awkward to bring the subject back up.

Overdoing gratitude, or worse, false gratitude in the name of being polite. For instance, I sent a note to an HR person the other day asking some questions and she asked if she could forward the note to someone on the staff who would be better able to answer. I said fine with me. She responded in big blue letters "Thank you so very much!!" I'm thinking, "Really?"

And just now someone asked me to do something very easy that is part of my job and I said sure, I can do that right away. And I get "Thank you SO much!!"

As an aside, I hate the phrase "thanks so much" that has become so common. Now I know why the Germans used to cringe at "vielen dank" instead of just danke.

I have to say that the one reason I keep dealing with a BMW/MB/Porshce deal over 90 minutes away is because of my sales guy. He seems to have a 6th sense about when I might be up for a change in vehicles, but he never bothers me otherwise. He always makes me a deal that's better than I expected. My C300 is the 6th car I've bought from him. I tried the local MB dealer because they had a nice car on their lot, but I couldn't get the salesman to return my calls. Believe that? Then my regular guy offers me a better deal on a nicer car anyway. When I'm ready for something else, I'll be going back to him.

Ironically I traded in my C300 for the Z4. Iím considering going back to MB due to the fact that Iím not happy with my local BMW dealership service. And Iíve tried a couple different ones. They never have a loaner car available, and I lost count at how many door dings and scratches they put on my car. MB on the other hand realized that my center caps were faded so they replaced them. They didnít even tell me they were replaced. I actually called them a couple days later and asked if they did. Service guy said youíre just noticing now? That was pretty cool. Itís a shame because I love the Z4. But Iím fed up with their customer service.

Ship sails both ways... typically maintanence on most Benzes is higher and customer service is a hit and miss as well. I wish I could find the thread of the guy with the C63.

I lol'd at this.

It's even worse when it's a joke you've been trying to get in the convo.

When it's finally your turn, everybody has either died down from laughter or you lose your will to tell it with the same amount of enthusiasm.

Hate to bring this one back around, but getting there and leaving is probably the two most favorite parts of my day (along with a hill climb carved into the side of a neighborhood with two high rise stone walls). Exhaust notes through the parking garage are something to revel at...


Now walking into the office, whole different story.

Haven't had to deal with the MB side of the service house yet. My new commute is 4 miles r/t, so I've only put about 7500 miles on the car so far. I love it.

I now hate you. Or at least mildly despise.

I've got a 160 km round trip each day. Only bright side is km's pass by far quicker than miles and it's typically not in traffic. Though when I do run into traffic, I start getting these homicidal tendencies...particularly when I see other induhviduals pathetic attempts at driving.

I did a 110 mile r/t commute every day for 11 years before I got my new job. The downsides of the long commute were the loss of time, the huge mileage buildup on the car (and the associated costs), the fuel, and driving in winter. On the other hand, I miss the unwind time between work and home and the opportunity for photography stops along the way. Driving home on a sunny Friday afternoon in the Z4 with Bob Marley cranking wasn't hard to take.

Almost everything bothers me at drive thru fast food spots.

I've accepted that the odds of getting your order correct are pretty weak, but I HATE when I make it all the way home, ready to demolish a nice, juicy "insert awesome food item" and it has fuk you sauce all over it.

The you have to either man up and just eat it or take the exact trip back to start all over. This post should also go into the 'First World Problems' thread.

Wifey is allergic to milk products, so I just gave up on drive thru. I got sick of getting home and finding cheese on her burger when I specifically and emphatically said no cheese. Now I check before leaving the counter. Amazingly enough, Pizza Hut has been very good about not screwing up, and they have the most things to get right. Pizza, bread sticks, pasta, etc.
