Completely absurd things people have said to you about your truck

Ive gotten such gems as "hey you might want to get your truck looked at its sounds like it has a knock" or "you know thats a diesel pump right?"

Not about my truck, but about 6.0s in general: "Why don't you turn the fuel up?" "It's a diesel, it has a high pressure fuel pump, not a high pressure oil pump."

Had a group at work, I took out to lunch last summer. 4 guys and myself, one asked "what I was waiting for to start the truck after I turned the key on?" The rest of us looked at him and almost in unison stated it was a diesel.

But you reply, "But it can haul your turd to the dealer when it dies."

Rolling along slowly in traffic on a Spring day, I was in the left lane - Other guy in the right lane. We were each moving forward as if jockeying for position. First him, then me. When we started moving at a good pace, he yelled out, "Your truck stinks!!" As he pulled away, I grinned and said, "Thanks!"

This winter the fince and I were taking her parents to dinner. They clearly thought my edge CTS was annoying and unnecessary. My future mother in-law asked "Why do you need to know the exhaust gas temp? Is that so you know when you need a new muffler?"
