Compliment or Insult?

I'm walking down the street when I do a double take of a AAA++ 1970's era
280 SL. The super clean car is gleaming in the sunlight. It's owner (a heavyset hip looking guy in his late 50's) is sitting in the driver's seat chowing down a big plate of take-out food.

I said, "No offense, but if I had a car like this I would never eat in it" He looked at me shook his head a little and went back to eating, obviously not taking it as a compliment.

Just wondering what you all think?

Well, I fucking hate it when I am eating Chinese and some dork stops to talk to me when my mouth is full, so I just wanted you to fuck off. And it is 83.

It was a rude comment. Frankly I would have thrown some food on you.

I know what point you are trying to make but if FTL wants to jerk off, eat chinese and sell dildo cream out of the trunk of his 280 on the side of an interstate, that should be no business of yours.

He was white, so I couldn't waste him without a witness.

I don't have any choice, the Republicans have taken over all of the public restrooms on Interstate 95.

So, you would feel more comfortable if the Oval Office was used for such activities?

So you are saying you'd rather get head from Larry in the restroom than Monica in the Head Office?
