my family are all farmers and id say take it as a compliment. Im getting from his quote to mean, you farmers are bada$$es and do whatever the hell you want..without giving a crap what others think. thats what im thinking as you know the guy and have dealt with him before.I was at a local performance parts shop today, they had ordered the wrong tailgate lip cover, so the owner walked out to check it against my tailgate.
He looked at FRANKENCAP and said "I like what you've done with your truck"
Shakes his head and say "Oh you farmers!"
Then added "You've taken a beautiful truck and made it look like crap"
I've been in this shop several times, I've spoken to this guy for hours picking his brain and he's a great guy.
I'm not sure whether I should be offended or not.
The cap is temporary, it does its job of protecting my tools and materials, and I've actually grown to like having a cap. So the fact that it looks like an abortion doesn't really bother me...IT WORKS.
As for being called a farmer, I'm just not sure how I should react, cuz truth is when I was a kid we had a farm, my father was brought up on a farm, my cousins are farmers. So, I suppose I'm genetically predisposed or something.
When I go back I'm going to be wearing my overalls and rubber boots!
Should I get Dave Peters on the case or what?
