Me: Technically, yes, but Hindus also believe in multiple gods that represent different aspects of life.
Oliver: I thought you guys believe in like Allah and stuff.
Me: No, that's Muslims. Hinduism and Islam are 2 different religions.
Oliver: But you guys are always saying "Praise Allah" and stuff.
Me: Have you ever heard anyone here say that?
Oliver: No, but like, brown people are always saying that.
Me: There's so many things wrong with..
Oliver: So have you ever seen the Taj Mahal? Is it big? Are there really a bunch of dead people in it?
Me: Do you remember why I fired you the first time? Like the main points I went over with you 4 months ago?

Now I know I sound spoiled, I'll be the first one to say it, but I always acknowledge the fact that I've been very lucky to have driven Mercedes all my life, and I think driving those cars as well as the various large bulky vans we've had balances out. I'm past the point of being made to feel bad about driving these cars, because as my mother puts it, "We've worked our asses off for these, so fuck everyone else." A short history of "my" cars:
So yes, I've been lucky, and I still am. This car will still allow me to drive like an asshole and transport things with ease. The thing is, within a month my mom will be turning in her car, and in place of that we will be getting....
A Smart Car. Which will become my car. We've been on the waiting list for 4 months, and it can take up to a year or so to get one. Now, these things are cool, we checked one out a week ago and it's pretty sweet inside. It's got everything you would find in a luxury vehicle (navigation, iPod support, Bluetooth, CD changer, leather seats) and is quite spacious. I'm very excited, but I'm also very worried, for 2 reasons. One is that it has an automatic manual transmission, which means that it will automatically change gears, but it requires a little footwork (press and release) to do so smoothly. This is seriously going to affect my ability to drive fast/like an asshole.
The other concern is that an SUV will hit me and I will be crushed to death like a Snicker's bar in a fat kid's pocket. Still, very excited.

I've also noticed the treatment I now receive as a smoker (albeit 3 days old). I haven't really mastered the art of covering the smell of cigarrettes yet, and in the restaurant people have been acting a little distanced towards me, especially the regulars. I did, however, make new friends with people in the center who hang out in the back to smoke. It's like immediate acceptance whenever you ask for or offer a light, no matter how many people you've killed. They do think I'm kind of an asshole now after they asked for the reason I took up smoking, which apparently offended some of them. So I've managed to get myself shunned from both smokers and non-smokers, which just proves again how good I am at alienation (like REALLY good). Everyone has pointed out that I'm probably going to get addicted myself, but that won't happen to me, I know that.
On another note, Marlboro really is flavor country...
