My boyfriend always comes home with stories whenever I let him take the jeep out - mostly for gas runs. People rarely approach me. I guess they think it couldn't possibly be mine. A lot of truckers honk. And homeless people always talk to me about it. Conversation usually goes:
"Nice jeep, is it yours?"
"Yes, sir" - I'm Southern so if you look older than me, it's sir or ma'am regardless of your status
"I bet you put a lot into it"
"Yeah, I'm broke, takes every spare penny I have"
Light usually turns green by now so I'm in the clear.
Little kids will always stop & look in parking lots. If I work on my jeep at my parents' - they have a garage & I don't - the kids on the street will come by on their bikes and watch. Once one of the kids said I was making too much noise & had to stop or close the garage. Yeah. Right. Like that was happening.
Oh and once an old lady was walking down the sidewalk, looked inside - not hard as I never have doors on - makes her husband come back & take a picture. She had to be at least in her 80s.
