Ok, maybe it's a "Jeep thing" I've not understood yet; but, I'm wondering why a 45 year old dude has possession of the song "I'm a Barbie Girl".

While my daughter is technically a new jeep driver vs a non jeep driver her first comments as she took her 1st drive (learners permit) in the TJ were priceless. We had just started down the road when not one, but two jeeps went by and both drivers waived.

My daughter went on for 5 min with "OMG they waived at me, they waived AT me, they waived at ME! She almost ran off the road, she was so excited. Naturally I explained the whole jeeper wave thing too her and she went on "that's so kewl", etc...

Then I looked over at her and said, "BUT! ...." "You didn't wave back....."

I thought she was gonna cry..

She doesn't forget now... :-)

I see nothing wrong with a 45 year old having possession of the "I'm a Barbie Girl", I think that every jeeper should have that song to play in moments such as these.

I definately have some anger issues.

The other day we were standing outside next to my TJ chatting and a co-worker said: "You know I really love the Wrangler Jeeps and would love to get one of THOSE."

What the hell does he think a TJ is?

"Doesn't your top leak when it rains??" Probably one of the most common questions I get. And it baffles me every time because they think because it's called a "soft top" it's not water proof..... I then respond with "It's no different than any other soft topped convertible. Are you trying to say my jeep is a POS or something?" Then they get all flustered because they know I love my jeep more than anything and insulting it is sorta like punching me square in the face. Pretty funny reactions really. Gotta love messing with people, especially the ones that ask stupid questions.

On a rather promising first date, I told her that I'd give her a ride home since she'd had a bit too much of the ol' bottle. It was only a few blocks... first thing she said when she saw my bone stock Sahara was " awwwwww OMG barbie jeep!"

I worked quickly and efficiently to make sure that no one, male or female, ever said those words to me, about my Jeep, ever again.

No one ever can guess the year of my jeep, they either think its a CJ or guess that its brand new. The other day i got a parking ticket for leaving it overnight at the mall and in the YEAR: section they wrote in 2010.

Can you get out of that ticket? It was written for a 2010 which you don't own.

My sister told me that there have been some vehicles broken into in our apartment complex. And that I need to put the back windows on my Jeep! I just looked at her and laughed!

My other favorite is:
You don't get good gas mileage in a jeep! My response is you don't buy a jeep for fuel economy!

Every friend I've taken in it wants to buy a jeep now lol, got my brother to buy one
Also had a kid from my school come up to me and ask how much I want for it, I told him it wasn't for sale but he should definitely look for a 4.0 tj lol

I am in Afghanistan and I bought my TJ why I was here found a good deal on it and have been doing a lot of research why I’m at work in my down time. So this “one upper” came in and he was like I use to have a 97 Jeep wrangler knowing he was lying I was really what is that again a CJ….XJ…? He was quick to answer with CJ I Just started to laugh and turned around and started to read again later on I let everyone in the office in on why I as laughing...they all got a kick out of it.

I always get asked what I do for a living, people usually think I'm SAR or some kind of first responder. When I tell them I'm an electrician it blows their mind for some reason.

Got pulled over once, and I thought it was because my Jeep was covered in mud and dropping it every where. Turns out he had just bought a Jeep and he wanted to know my suspension set up because my Jeep sits the exact way he wants his. Was a really cool cop and we talked Jeep for about 30 minutes even though we were blocking the road....

Often come out of work to somebody checking out the jeep, then ask about it and how I like the tires being so big (only 33's)
I don't mind

The comments I usually get are either "I'm jealous!" or even better, "hope you don't mind spending a lot of money and time on that thing!" I wouldn't trade it for the world!

My Inca Gold TJ is constantly called Yellow or the Guldens Mustard Jeep. And some guy asked me if mine was one of the convertible Jeeps.

O last one.. I was asked if it was 4 wheel drive.
