[DML] Ignorant People (was: Re: Ignorant DJ)



I've had LOTS of experience with that, and I've only had my car for 5 
years. When it first happened, I honestly didn't know how to approach 
it, so I shrugged allot of it off. But over time, I started firing 
back at people. Especially if it was in a group of people. If they 
said some sort of misinformation, or had their facts wrong, I'd call 
them on it right there. "Smuggling coke in the cars? And where 
exactly did you hear this?" From there I'd just tear them down in 
front of everyone. "Ok. So you know this as fact, because you once 
heard it from someone who's name you can't even remember?" You'd be 
amazed how quickly people become red-faced, and lose respect among 
people in a crowd. And you don't even need to be mean. Just 
confidently question them, and they'll back down.

The last time this happened, I was at the SoCal speedshop here in 
Vegas with a buddy of mine browsing around last March. The old guy 
behind the counter saw my DeLorean shirt, and asked me if I owned 
one. And then out of no where, makes some snyde comment about how 
John DeLorean loved cocaine. Not only did kindly inform him that he 
was wrong, and proceeded to ask him how exactly he knew this, I 
followed him around the store for another 3-4 minutes aruging while 
he was trying to ignore me! Once he cried "uncle" and admitted that 
he had never actually heard any of this (in the middle of the store 
mind you), I left him alone.

I enjoy educating people about my car, the man, and the company. But 
sometimes, I seem to have go that "extra mile" to set people 
straight...
