That's what the bumper sticker read.

My girlfriend and I were walking out of a Chinese Restaurant during my lunch break today and I saw a MASSIVE Ford Excursion (Basically the largest SUV) with at LEAST 34 inch tires and some sort of lift kit. It was parked right next to me.

It looked like an urban assault vehicle. It barely fit in the parking spot.

I read the bumper sticker which stated, "Buy a Hybrid so I can use your gas."

My gf and I stood and talked for a moment when the owner of the vehicle came outside and walked to her vehicle. She was a high-class soccer mom.... she had ONE child with her. Now, I'd understand if she had a large family (which, she could potentially and I just don't know it).

She could fit an entire kindergarten class in that thing if she wanted.
Let's pretend she has 4 kids. She could still buy something like a van or a smaller SUV.
It just seemed so.... wasteful and... bitch-like (the bumper sticker).

I glared at her as she got in her tank (she could barely climb up in it, even with step-bars) and she drove off.

I really wanted to tell this lady off but couldn't think of anything to say

I might not even have a right for this to piss me off, but it just really irked me.

I would've asked her if she was smuggling illegal aliens with it. And if she said no, ask her if she'd like to.

"Hi, I'm here with GreenWar, and I'd like to congratulate you on your needlessly extravagant car and its exorbitantly wasteful fuel efficiency. Please continue to do your bit against the environment and if you ever need any tips on running over children or preventing others from recycling, don't hesitate to call our hotline!"
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Can you name the truck with four wheel drive,
smells like a steak and seats thirty-five..

Canyonero! Canyonero!

Well, it goes real slow with the hammer down,
It's the country-fried truck endorsed by a clown!

Canyonero! (Yah!) Canyonero!

The Federal Highway comission has ruled the
Canyonero unsafe for highway or city driving.

Canyonero!

12 yards long, 2 lanes wide,
65 tons of American Pride!

Canyonero! Canyonero!

Top of the line in utility sports,
Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts!

Canyonero! Canyonero! (Yah!)

She blinds everybody with her super high beams,
She's a squirrel crushing, deer smacking, driving machine!

Canyonero!-oh woah, Canyonero! (Yah!)

Drive Canyonero!

Woah Canyonero!

Woah!

who cares? if you have the money, you should drive whatever you want. my friend's cousins are rich; their mom has a huge freaking hummer, but only two kids. who cares?

well you're kind of a dick. it's her choice isn't it? you didn't know the situation. maybe that was the one car they had that day, and she didn't want to transport all her 6 kids around so snoopy people like you wouldn't raise a big fuss about it. not everybody has a use for a small car like you might, either.

She could still buy something like a van or a smaller SUV.


what if they needed to use trailers? i'm not saying everyone has a use for those huge SUVs, but in the future you should probably realize you don't know the situation at all.

I don't have a small car. I have a medium-sized pickup truck. But I actually need a truck.

I realize that's her choice. It's fine with me that she drives that. America is a free country.
All I'm saying is it pissed me off.

I never said I knew the whole situation. I guess it was just the bumper sticker that was kind of the icing on the cake.
I probably wouldn't have even thought twice about it if it wasn't for that damned bumper sticker.

seljer. answer me this. how would you be able to convert bones to oil? and another thing. if fossils were our sources of fuel, what would stop us from burying our dead and digging them up millions of years later for a few gallons of gas? why haven't we started that yet?

As for the actual thread, I think you should have minded your own business. If she had started something and gotten in your face about her bumper sticker, you could have said something. But you shouldn't say something about it out of the blue.

It's her choice, but it's pretty dumb.

My friend's dad use a Toyota Tundra for his job. (He works in the construction field), it cost 150$/week worth of gas.

The engine is the Keith Richards of the engines. It drinks tons.

For all of you who don't care about the environnement, you're selfish and dumb. We're killing our planet, we're killing casualties for the petroleum. We live in society, everyone should take a step in the right direction, it might change a lot of things.

Open your eyes, you're not alone. My family is rich; yet my dad drives a hybrid Lexus and my mom drives a Prius. We don't need an effing hummer or a huge ass SUV to be happy.

They're called Fossil fuels, not fuel from fossils.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fossil_Fuel

Comparative figures:
1 litre of regular gasoline is the time-rendered result of about 23.5 metric tonnes of ancient phytoplankton material deposited on the ocean floor. [5]
The total fossil fuel used in the year 1997 is the result of 422 years of all plant matter that grew on the entire surface and in all the oceans of the ancient earth.[5]

since I cbf to write it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fossil_fuel#Origin

we've had combustion engines for what...300 years now? and look how much we've used up. Its not a profitable long term strategy. Gas is gonna run out no matter what
