I was an after work party, getting ready to leave when this woman came up to ask me about my car. She wanted to know what the fuss was about . My friend, (a wishful, non mini owner) went on to describe what a great, fun car the MINI is. "It's FAST, can turn/stop on a dime" he said. She replied (are ready for this....?????? Perhaps you should sit down, if you're not!) "Oh! I know what you mean, I just bought a FORD EXPLORER and it can stop and turn on a dime also!"
I did consider tring to enlighten her, but decided against it:
1. she'd been eating/drinking & a quick run through the local 'twisties' might have been detrimental to my car
2. she seemed so happy in her little bubble, who am I to break it?
3. She didn't appear to be a friendly person, so I didn't want a mini in the hands of another 'non waver'!!!!!
