Just wondering...

How much money do you have to earn in order NOT to be stressed out about the cost of a Hummer? I saw one on the way to work and I wondered what goes through the brain of someone who buys one? They must be so exceedingly different from me. There is no WAY (with the genetic makeup I have) I could EVER justify that kind of showiness for that kind of expense for that kind of uselessness for that kind of environmental damage. NEVER, no matter HOW much I earn.

Isn't that funny? We were discussing hummers last night at supper. I said something like, "I see a hummer and I automatically think, 'must be a jerk.'" I can't help it.

Yeah me too, I can't help but assume all hummer drivers are a**holes.

Have you seen any of the ads for the new Hummer ‘lite’? Apparently they start around 40,000… meaning now the middle class a**holes can have a hummer too.

God help us all.

Yeah, that's where you KNOW your opinions are spilling over onto your children - my kids see hummers and automatically question the sanity of the drivers :-)

My husband and I just mentioned this exact same thing yesterday! I understand why people buy luxury vehicles...but Hummers? Hummers?! I shake my head.

If I'm going to fork over that kind of money for something we damn well better be able to live in it.
