It doesn't happen to me (chick with a hardtop), but it doesn't surprise me much... some people have a lot of urine in their gene pools.

I have a leather Swiss military satchel. I got out of the car at a Quickmart in Sacramento with it on. 4 punk kids in a vert are parked there. One says "nice handbag dude" the others chuckled. I rolled down my beanie which is actually a balaclava or ski mask and asked them to watch out for cops. They drove off so fast I nearly pmsl.
In retrospect, probably a really foolish thing to do. 'twas bloody funny though.

so i guess the solution is to find a manlier convertible...

Theres the comaro, but i'd have to grow a mullet and move into a trailer before i could get one of those...

Theres the corvette, but that doesnt have enough seats

OOOO, Maybe Jeep Wrangler? That says garrr im a man that likes trucks and going off road with my buddies near my hunting lodge in the maine woods and shooting animals

I sometimes get funny looks when I drive my mom's beemer with the top down, but usually my long har/unshavenness/general/dontgivea**** demeanor takes care of it

Whatever, I'm guessing the kid who yelled it is like 15? I'm sure the ladies love him. That car is hot.

I had something similar happen to me a few years ago by that type of person. I wish I were able to describe his surprise when I pulled him out of his car, shook him like a terrier with a rat and asked him if he'd like to rephrase that.....needless to say, I was not bothered by the local teens anymore.

I was called a biiatch by some girls once. I had to look that one up in the urban dictionary to figure that one out, at first I thought they had mistaken me for one of their female enemys as it was dusk but basically in some places it can be used much in the same manner as the remark that was made about you.

I get some strange looks when out with my blond brother though.

I'm thinking a Protected by S&W sticker and some mudflaps with naked female silhouettes on them might help. But I'm not willing to sink that low, Ok, maybe I'm seriously considering the S&W sticker, maybe more than just the sticker....

Other than that I just try to look old and mean and smoke my pipe a lot.

Isn't your correct response to pull a semi-automatic weapon and start shooting over there?

Are you sure it wasn't foreplay?

If someone over here were to shout "FAAAG", the appropriate response would be "Bloody well buy yer own mate!"

Nope, he's from maine, they're fairly civilized up there, I think you're thinking of my area.

Do you smoke fags? Its bad for your health ya know, causes lots of diseases.

Pull that line in the english lit or comp section of a college and be ready to be picked apart, lol. I know, I know, I was wicked in my younger days.

Seriously though, you should consider changing to cigars or a pipe, much better for your health.
