Last night in the hardware store parking lot a scruffy looking guy gets out of a REAL old and beat up Dodge Powerwagon pick-up with a beer can and a cigarette and suspiciously looks at my Ridgeline while I'm putting some stuff in the trunk.

"Not bad for a chick truck" he says in a not unfriendly way.

I was speechless. Dumb struck. Any ideas for a comeback for next time?

Steve,

That is called 'Playa Haten' (player hater). The guy was jealous of your truck because yours looks great and is a potential chick magnet! While his looks like crap! So here's your comeback....'DON'T HATE THE PLAYA, HATE THE GAME!' :cool:

Steve you said he was not unfriendly. Next time, be friendly in return i.e. laugh and say "Thanks, we just love this truck, I mean, look at the tailgate [demonstrate]. And can you believe this trunk!!? [show him] And the back seats flip up!!! [if he's still interested]". These things are likely to impress if not amaze him. And if he isn't interested, just "to each his own!" and smile at him.

Show some confidence next time!!! :)

I think I would have told the guy " It may not look it, but this truck has bigger Balls than you do !! " then smile and look innocent. :eek:

I would have responded (using a pathetic southern draw)

Yeah, I was looking for a manly truck that didn't ride well, wasn't functional, broke down a lot, looked horrible, didn't have navigation, couldn't fit my family, didn't have a lockable trunk etc. but the dang Honda dealer wouldn't ruin this one for me. To top it off, my southern flag keeps coming off the electric rear window when I slide it open. The only problem I hear the manly truck buyers are having is the wind whistling when blows past their girlfriends last tooth. Man oh man, can you believe those guys at Honda? GM, Ford, and Dodge ruin all their trucks right from the factory for us men! Maybe, someday those Honda guys will catch on. Don't know how I got stuck with this chick truck. I guess I will try to make myself feel a little better by using the voice commands and XM up to some redneck manly music." By the way, when this Honda breaks down in 300,000 miles or so or when I lose my job, I will have to get me a manly truck of my own. I just hope the dogs will jump in when I can only let the tailgate flip down and not swing open like they like it now.

I haven't had this happen to me yet, but I would probably not dignify him with a reply. If I did reply, it would be something like, "Maybe you should educate yourself about this truck first. The big three are likely to copy many features found on this truck. This will be the 2006 Truck of the Year." :p

I actually made the Truck of the Year claim to some co-workers of mine months ago. :D

I will tell you a little story about a die hard Ford F-250+ Crew Cab co-worker of mine. We would go back and forth about the "little truck" I had and if I ever needed a tow we could put it in the bed of his truck. Anyways, after he has ridden in it a couple of times, he has come full circle and really likes the ride, the comfort, the features, etc. He would never get one because he needs a full size diesel, but after he has heard about my weekend adventures and what it can do (scratches in the bed) he completely understands why I got this truck. His son actually has been drooling over mine for weeks. He wishes he could get my "luxury" with his super duty requirements.

I agree.

I wonder why so many of you Ridgeline owners are so insecure about your trucks/buying decisions???!!!!???
