whistle while you (go to) work...

OH MY GOSH GUYS. i am... stunned. speechless (nearly). i just... i... i didn't know things had come to this. i didn't know things like this EXISTED. i.. wow. allow me to set the scene:

i brought my semi-functioning car to the honda dealership this morning for what will hopefully just be a battery replacement. i live on a quiet little street just off a big ol' main street, and honda is only like half a mile down the big ol' street, so i just walked home after dropping off my car. which means i walked 1/2 mile down a highly-trafficked road. no big deal. it's a fairly urban area, so i'm used to some honks and wolf whistles if i ever walk around in this area.

what i am NOT used to is hearing a wolf whistle, turning instinctively to see where it came from, and finding the car... with the window rolled up. and the guy inside it staring at me, but without his lips pursed. because he wasn't the one who whistled.

his CAR whistled.

THIS GUY HAD A BUTTON ON HIS CAR SOMEWHERE THAT HE COULD PRESS TO MAKE IT WHISTLE AT GIRLS WHEN HIS WINDOWS WERE ROLLED UP.

i... i... just don't know what to make of this. impressed that someone would go to such lengths? offended? appalled? intrigued? i keep coming back to "stunned." his CAR whistled at me, y'all. seriously. wow.

  1. I don't see what's so weird about that. I showed my Honda your profile picture and he thinks you're hot also.

  5. How can you be sure this is what happened? What if it was someone else whistling? How do you know he had a button? Not that I don't believe you, but if it had happened to me I would just assume I was losing my mind and had made the whole thing up.

    Oh, and thanks for getting "Whistle While you Work" stuck in my head!

  6. hee.. a good question hope. i am pretty sure it was that specific car tho, because i was walking in the grassy median of the highway at the time, so i was only like 5 feet from the car. and you know the look? THE look? the one that guys who are whistling at you give? yeah... dude with the whistling car was giving me that look.

  8. I'm not sure I understand why women don't like cat-calls and wolf whistles. If a group of women whistled at me, I would be flattered. No jokes about the possibility of it happening.

    That is kinda cool though. The whistle .. and ... all ... ya ...

    Was that a 'niner' in there Tommy?

  9. LOL

    maybe it wasn't so much the whistle he was hoping that would be magic...maybe he just needed a different conversation starter...

    Any guy who goes to THAT much trouble deserves at least a quick wave...hahahah

  13. You shouldn't be so shocked actually, I mean the Honda vehicle is actually kin to the car, driven by David Hasseloff (sp?)in Knight Rider, that went by the name of Kit. Kit could clearly communicate and had a sharp mind. In fact, it was Kit that suggested to David, while on a break from filming, to do the whole Bay Watch TV series... you talk about cat calls... oh yea! So I think to myself, after reading Neal's post, nnice why don't you show Alice's picture to your Honda Accord and see what happens. Well when the Honda came inside to the computer room, sure enough when he saw her profile pic, batta bing batta boom, he starts leaking all over the carpet... I was like get outta here before you get us both in trouble. So there you have it, don't blame the button or even the car, blame it all on Kit... that car started it all. ;-)

  16. Here's what I want to market: a button that plays engine revving noises from a souped-up Mustang. So many rice-rockets already have the stereo system to make it sound convincing. Way better than those--excuse me--*farting* noises their fat mufflers make.

  17. Hahhahaha! I think that's genius!
