That's okay TX sounds good to me !!
I can't stand stupid people at the marina.
Wow, nice boat.
-Ya, thanks.[keeping packing the boat]
Well, uh...Is it fast?
-Ya, it's pretty fast[keep loading, look away]
So, How much is it?
- [ WTF!] You don't want to know!
Well, my buddy has a cigarette boat of some kind and It's probably faster.
- Good for your Fvcking Buddy!
Damn, I can get so pissed off. Besides boats, when else do complete strangers get so inquisitive. It's like here you go: it costs xx,xxx much, here's my ss#, my address, last time I got laid was yesterday, anything else you want to know!
But the worst is when someone asks if it is a cigarette boat! No, you moron, it's not! Can't you F'in see the lettering on the side that a foot and a half tall. Sheesh....

Dumbest questions from the summer of 2001
Q:Is that one of them cat boats?
Q:it looks fast,is it?
Q:are those things expensive?
Q:does it use lots o gas?
Q:you let your kid go on that thing?
Q:how much money do you make to afford one of those things?
Q:do you think it would be as fast as my buddies fishin boat?
Q:can yu take me for a ride?
Something you guys might not realize...
When these people ask you how much and how fast it is.........They are looking for recognition...........That's all
Besides guys these people with big ass cigs and little ass Fountains appear to be the same to the average guy or girl....
I'd take that as a compliment......all they really want is to look like somebody to someone who can actually afford one of those toys......
Being in the level of this sport that I am in....I can truely appreciate what it actually takes to not only have one but to more importantly keep one of thses pigs.....
I can only imagine what it would be like to spend that kind of money on a hole in the water...........
Great ?? HA HA HA HA HA
How much gas does it burn?
Burning gas is cheap...burning engines is expensive.
These questions (and answers) are hilarious. Baja Daze, you crack me up! Apparently you've never been pregnant.
"When are you due?"
"Boy or girl?"
"Got names picked out?"
and this will be from a complete stranger in line at the grocery store. Kind of like boating--you enjoy the attention, but marvel at some of the ignorant questions.
I don't get angry at their questions, but I do get angry when people try to "help" at the boat launch, always unsolicited. If one more person grabs the lines away from me or reties them, I'm going off...
I like it when someone asks,"Wow, is that thing trailerable?' Now, this could be a good question when viewing the boat in the water. However, it becomes a stupid question when they ask it while looking at the boat sitting on its trailer hooked to a truck.
My favorie one is when some guy with a 1967 Akansas Traveler say's "I'll take you fishin' if you take me partying". Gee that sounds like SO much fun. Will we be taking your sister/wife with us to?
And no I've never been pregnant. At least I hope not.
