Have your boss compliments your MB?

Guys,

My boss called me after office hours just to say that my car is beautiful and say nice things of it more and more.

Then again the day after, she tells her friends (my indirect boss) how clean my car is.

Realizing that my car is 20 years old, and I never expected my boss compliments on my car than on my office performance, I guess that explain people spontaneous feelings about Mercedes-Benz..

I don't mean to tute my own horn, but I am so crazy about my car yes, I dont want to sell it, and I got many compliments and admiring glances from my friend but my boss compliments made me proud having Mercedes.

Have any of you experience similar things?
What should I do now? Wax my car again?
[:D][:p]

i'm sure we get more compliments than the newer benz owners. we get compliments because our cars are so old, old meaning close to 20 years and the car looks like it just rolled of the lot. another reason why i think we get compliments is because our cars are out of the ordinary. they are not hondas or any typical american car. i think our cars are diamonds the rough and w123 and w126 owners are some of the few lucky owners that happen to own one.

RE: Have your boss compliments your MB?

My boss likes my car. He's always telling people to buy a car like mine.

OUr mechanic for our work trucks likes my car. Because it's clean and sharp and well-built, not because he's working on it alot and it's paying for his retirement.

Lots of co-workers like it too. One girl constantly asks to drive it or get a ride in it.

Brings a smile to my face, because after a while it seems like just basic transportation to me. But to see someone so enthusiastic and happy about it...i makes me happy then too.
