ok....... this is a branch off from http://www.benzworld.org/forums/unimog/1316496-trouble-using-mog-deliveries.html

How about we start a list of common questions strangers ask us about your Mog at the gas station, store etc. As a group we can come up with half serious half humerous answers to these questions. Then anyone that wants can copy these, make up a little sign and post it on your rigs for folk to read while your in the store instead of taking up your time when your ready to go. Just dont run over someone trying to read it when your leaving.

Of course, as mentioned before, the big one has to be:

'What do you do with that thing ??'

ANSWER:
. What ever I want...
. Is that a question or an observation ?
. Yo Momma !

The soccer moms with the Hillary'08 stickers usually just scowl at you and try and shield their children's eyes.

I forget who I heard it from, but
for when a person seems obnoxious...
(Whatever question "blah, blah, blah?")
"Well actually, it's my wife's and I don't know much about it".
End of conversation.

The best question I have had was from a snob driving a M-B SUV that asked
"why I put a Mercedes emblem on that Thing"
My reply was that "I didn't, Mercedes did"
The most common question I get is after people see the air intake. They ask how deep of water I can drive in. My reply is always that if I wanted to drive in water I would have bought a boat.

I've got that one before. It was a snobish person that asked me too. I was like, "I don't know but whoever did also put an emblem on the engine, chasis, and ID plate too!"

A: What would you you call this thing then? (pointing at trucK)

Q: How fast does it go?
A: About 52 miles per hour. Faster if I close my eyes while driving.

Rather attractive gal at a gas station asked me, "Hey, is that really a Mercedes? I've been following you all the way up the road and I thought it was a moving truck at first."

- Yes, its really a mercedes.. though I could use it as a moving truck (radio truck box)



"What kinda gas mileage do you get?"

- About 12.5mpg.. (Yes, I calculated it out over two days of driving)



"Where'd you get this thing?"

- eBay.

"Really?"

- Yes...



"Are you in the army?"

- No.



My favorite comment though, which I've heard quite a few times now:
"Thats the coolest thing I've ever seen!"

MIB needed

MB needs to offer an optional `flash-pen ' as used in the Men In Black movies. This is for all the people that stop whatever they are doing when I drive by and stare with dropped jaw. If it is a quick trip they are still there in the same `frozen' position on the way home. If I could get one of those `flash pens' I could zap them to erase their memory and let them get on with life.

The other day I had a guy pass me at a light , and when I caught up to him atthe next light his passanger popped up through the sun roof and took a picture of the truck with her cell phone. Must have been a slow day.
