Know-It-All future Camaro owner

So I'm at the dealer today checking out their black 2SS/RS auto and another customer pulls in and hops out of his truck...with one of those bluetooth phones hanging off his ear. Not a good sign. We start chattin and he says he thought it might be his because he ordered a black 6-speed, but no, this one's an auto and it's not an RS. I say, "Really?" 'cause I was pretty sure it was. I head to the front and say, "Yeah, it's got halos. This is an RS." "No, it doesn't have RS badges."

You see where this is going. I tried to explain that red SS badges means SS/RS, that RS only appears on 6s blah blah blah. No dice. Not just disagreement; belligerent I-know-what-I'm talking-about-you-don't proclamations. Of course the young lot guy agrees that V8 RSs come with RS badges, so he's no help. Finally, I meekly point out the tag on the window which reads - wait for it - OPTIONS:RS PACKAGE. Did that help? Of course not, the wheels were silver, not dark gray! I didn't even bother. A pre-order customer who's never been to Camaro5.com and doesn't know every possible fact about his car. That's just weird.

Wait'll his car comes in and he starts informing his dealer they screwed up his order. That's gonna be a loooong day.

As a matter of fact...yes! The combination of ignorance and arrogance really got under my skin. I was THIS close to shouting YOU. ARE. AN. IDIOT! But I had a couple of developmentally disabled guys nearby in my Civic and figured getting in a brawl on the clock would be a bad idea. I hope I manage to get there when he picks his car up. It's gonna be a show.

Blue tooth in the ear while he's not even talking on it is a 100% guarantee that this guy is a douche!

I always want to punch people in the teeth when they walk around with a bluetooth headset while they arent even talking on it... like what the f*ck is THAT important that you need to have your phone strapped to your ear all the time.

One time there was a guy walking next to me and his bluetooth was in his ear on his left side where I couldn't see it..he just starts screaming at somebody as he was walking down the street....scared the shit out of me...I thought he was screaming at himself...ever since then...bluetooth = TOOL!!

back on topic
i know how you feel, i've met more than a fair share of people who seem to have those same qualities. seems like they have trouble saying "oh, really? i had no idea that's how badging works. cool"

and i can't believe he was still in denial after showing him the spec sheet
"well actually sire, you're correct. this is no RS, obviously i must be wrong. GM happens to quite enjoy posting random packages on spec sheets to confuse the heck out of customers"

headsets are mandatory on cell's while driving up here, not sure what the rules are in the states, so i've gotten sort of used to them. i don't mind people driving using them, but when tools are walking down the street empty handed talking away to themselves it's pretty annoying.

Hands-free cell-phone use in cars is mandatory here in CA., too, but for some reason only normal people use ear-bud headsets. The bluetooth-on-the-ear phone automatically turns all guys into Incredibly Happenin' Dudes. Gotta get me one of those.

I like how people like this get the title "know-it-all" when those of us—Camaro5 leadership, certain members, me—who do know pretty much everything about this car don't get this title. I'm not trying to be arrogant, but we should come up with a new term for these imbeciles.

Hmmm, I guess I am a , Borg, or whatever. But, whenever I am driving my car (which especially doesn't have Bluetooth in it) I wear mine all the time and use it a heck of a lot.

Much better than driving without one like those dorks behind me with a phone sticking out of their ears ready to rear end me. Those are the real dorks and (_____Put your derogatory name here______)! I am so tired of wide eyed non-attentive drivers in my mirror.

And pretty soon here in Illinois if you aren't using Handsfree you are up for a Ticket. It is already law in Chicago.

So, I would rather you not be so judgemental on what is a Major Safety issue here and in many other locations.

Sorry, but, it isn't so black and white when you are talking about a visual preconception about any person.

Does this make me a bad person if I sync up my camaro bluetooth to my cellphone when I get it ;-) That has to be the ultimate bluetooth "headset".

I will admit thought that I do use one of those pretty often when driving right now - I hate the wired headsets and I do often have calls for my work which may not finish till after I have got out of the car - but I do agree that some folks seem to use these as male jewellery

OK, you guys are getting a little to literal here. Obviously not EVERYBODY with a Bluetooth is a ________, it's just a stereotype here in N. CA. and I was having a little fun with it. Besides, I'm referring to the ____________ that walk everywhere with them, not the responsible citizens in their cars.

I think they are fine while in the car. If you want to have a conversation with someone give them your full attention dont be rude.

^^i have no issue with people using them while driving, it's already a law in my province. or in moderation while not driving. claymore worded it better than i did previously, i find it irritating with people who view the headsets as a fashion accessory and constantly have it clipped to their ear, regardless of if they're eating a meal, having a conversation with you, and the worst (yes i've seen it) having it still on while using a landline phone in the other ear

but hey, this isn't an anti-headset thread, it's about the irritating know-it-alls.

I don't know if I want to punch them, but I agree it just looks stupid. Like, hey I am so important I've got to keep this in my ear at all times because I might get a call.

What's really funny is I've seen people on a regular basis with the bluetooth in their ear and NEVER, NEVER on a call!

I have one and sometimes I'm on conference calls for hours, so it comes in handy, but if I have to go in to a store or something I will just take it out and go to handsfree until I'm back in the car.

Anyway, uh Camaros are cool and I can't wait to get mine and what an idiot that guy was.

Had to say that so I was not completely off topic!
