The other day I came home and Mike asked the standard, "and how was your day, Dear?" and rather than answering with my usual "fine/it was hell/rub my feet" reply, I actually told him in a little more detail.
"well, Mike...it's funny you should ask ...my day was fine until it ended with the two Dans asking me to referree a bet of theirs...."
The bet in question was how fast a 2005 Dodge Neon could go zero to sixty. Oh, how I wish I was making this shit up. A Dodge. Neon. Apparently Dan #1 had rented one in Texas and said 9 seconds or better. Dan #2 said 10+ seconds.
OH. My. God. I am trapped in NERDVILLE: Population 2.
Both gave "compelling" arguments supporting their respective cases including website info and a Car & Driver-like rag to serve as documentation. However, seeing as I really don't care how fast a car goes 0-60...let alone a DODGE NEON, I will not say who I gave the win to, but I will say THEY REALLY DON'T PAY ME ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH THIS KIND OF NONSENSE.
While I'm at it, these were the same 2 that took a soy milk break the other day.
There, ...now I feel better.
