Of all my vehicles, I get the most "respect" on the road when driving my F-250. If only it got 34 mpg like the Mazda .
It's not respect, it is just jackasses who own stupid large gas guzzlers who have no respect for others like to take over the roads and intimidate people. Moderator cut: see comment Who needs that many vehicles, anyway?

Hopefully you're not one of those Obamabots or you'd have to give away two of your excess vehicles in the name of Socialism. Who needs that many vehicles, anyway?
whatever!
You don't even know my circumstances so what gives you the right to say anything. Besides it isn't a GAS guzzler is a DIESEL . By the way those THREE vehicles are MINE and my husband has two of his own plus my daughter's truck and then we have the two ranch vehicles.

I pay my bills, you worry about yourself and I will worry about me.

Never mess with a 'real' Texan about 3 things:

1) Trucks
2) Guns
3) Property

I love all three and bust my hump to afford each one ---

I, too, will do as I please with my 'guzzler'!

BTW TXtruckgrl, we have a F-250 Powerstroke and love it!

See you on the road! honk honk

I pay my bills, you worry about yourself and I will worry about me.
And you are only adding to the pollution and waste of gas, too. So when we have an oil crisis and prices go up, it will be you and your brethren who will be to blame. Wasteful in a time when we are encouraged to conserve and protect the planet. Who cares about the planet when one is so greedy and thinks only of themselves?

Also, I thank you to not tell me what I can and can not say. I have every right to comment on your situation since you posted it here and made it fair game. Understand how public message boards work. If you are not ready to be called out for your choices, don't post about them.

Since your monster runs on diesel I'm sure you enjoy the stink. No one needs that many trucks or cars or vehicles of any sort. It's all just a mental game trying to prove yourself better than other people based on a hunk of metal. *twirls finger*

And don't mess with a New Yorker on ANYTHING. Silly Texans thinking trucks mean anything at all. Gun in Texas are again a matter of pride and status and semblance of power where in New York they're a matter of survival.

I'm not here to make friends. I'm not here to pretend and get caught up in comparing the size of my hunk of metal against someone else's hunk of metal. It's all fakery and illusion. Like jewelry -- if someone has a rock on their finger that's heavier than someone else's, it means that person is more worthy of all good things, smarter and more wonderful and worshipful (even though diamonds are worth about 1/3 of what you paid for them once you sign the receipt.)

Fantasy and the need to feel superior and powerful. Wasting your time working hard for money to pay for something that will make you feel better about yourself.

Maybe some of us don't need other people's approval.

What does "left lane for passing, not cruising" have to do with owning a truck? I'd only see it fitting if only truck drivers violated this road rule.
