Funny Foto Friday: How I roll & the best job response ever

This weekend, the ‘Boring household is going new (possibly used?) car shopping.  Some people hate the car shopping “game” but I actually love it.  I don’t take car-salesmen’s crap personally and realize that they’re doing a job and (in spite of their douchbaggery) we’d likey go out for a beer if not in the high pressure sales environment.  Of course, during that beer, the salesman would probably try to convince me to rust protect my belt buckle for the low price of $10/month for the next 8 years.


This week’s Funny Foto Friday is (again) a bit of a mashup of various photos I’ve ran across over the past week or so. No theme, only hilarity.  Happy Friday!

First, Lesley over at Racing it Off sent me a link to a T-Shirt with this on it. 
Needless to say, pictures of me wearing it will soon follow.


I actually love my job, but yeah.....this.


Who HASN’T done this if they’ve been running/riding and seen one??
(This picture has been making the rounds, but never gets old)


Finally, while a long read, this has to be one of the cockiest, most arrogant, hilarious job responses I’ve ever seen.  I’m sure it is fake, but that doesn’t make me want to put boot to very bronzed, gym hardened face any less.
Customer support and shit? MEGA CHECK!

You blog about motorcycle lust then write a post about buying a used car?! Say it isn't so - get a motorcycle instead!

hired!

Although funny and no doubt good for morale, I wouldn't hire the dude. He misspelled taupe.

I can totally identify with the biking/speed zone picture. I had the same "woo hoo" reaction once when I ran past one of those signs and it said 6. (I'm not that fast.) lol

SWEET! I'm getting that T-shirt.

That "how I roll" cartoon is priceless!

XLMIC said...

Yeah...Shannon nailed it. No hire for bad spelling. Sorry, dude.

Good luck with the whole car biz...have fun with that :)

You LIKE buy cars? UGH, we just went through this after 6 years and I hated every minute of it. My wife and I drive old cars partially because I can't stand the whole process. We even tried going through Costco but still had to deal with the crazy new car B.S. It didn't help that we wanted a popular model, but still annoying. Got lucky and found a car broker online & didn't have to deal with the dealer nonsense. Total WIN!

Good luck, "enjoy" the car buying in 92 degree weather!

I hope your healing continues too this weekend - don't push it too hard.

I think the funniest part is at the whoever took the picture put his/ her finger over the email address. Then, at the bottom of the page, the dude's last name is clearly seen with a pretty good idea of the first name.

I like that - pronouncing it DOPAY... I almost have him credit for alliteration.... Thought he spelled taupe "toupe" because it was more in line with dope. Ah well.

Car buying is a hassle. My husband has it down to a science now, though.... after two car purchases in a decade. We figure out the car we want and the price we're willing to pay, and then he faxes (then)/emails (now) local dealers the price he's willing to pay. Both times it has worked like a charm.
