What is that, a Fiat?

Today, I pulled into a parking lot and there was another ZX3 looking for a jump start. The guy asked me if I could help, so I pulled in next to him and gave him a jump start off my ZX3.

I asked the guy how many miles his car had, it looked pretty well used. The guy started in on how much he loves his little car and is going to get another one, they are so great. I agreed that they are neat little cars, at which point he asks me what kind of car am I driving. I told him the exact same thing he drives, it took him a moment as he looked over the two ZX3's parked right next to each other. His teenaged son looked embarrassed.

Some people really are oblivious, aren't they?

I do recall when I had my Focus, that I got comments all the time from people who had no idea it was a Ford. That was back when the Focus was still a pretty new car that had only been out for a few years, though.

some people just dont care... they just know how to put the car in drive and in park... a few know how to acutally gas it but thats about it... ask a few people at work what engine their car has, or what model is it? or what color are the black leather seats they have in it... most cant answer those simple questions... its just sad

^^ I used to ask those people simple questions when they came in to get parts for their car. How does that work?
