    Who do these people think they are?

    If I ran a business, there's NO WAY I'd have a section on my web page just to offend customers, even if I did think the questions were dumb. How arrogant. You're not God, you're not Santa- at the end of the day you still just sell toy cars. Get over yourselves.

    RE: Who do these people think they are?

    I thought it was really funny. I guess what they're really saying is they don't want the business of anyone who is either offended by them putting that on their site, nor the stupid people. They only want to do business with the rest. I'm still trying to figure out why you can't charge during a power outage.

    RE: Who do these people think they are?

    Nope!! Black with 2 yellow stripes are the fastest. I think it was very funny! I think if you're offended by those humorus questions,- you have probably asked them !!! Some other vendors should follow that idea. Like; if you have never flown an RC plane, DON'T make your first one a Jet or a 3-D plane.

    RE: Who do these people think they are?

    Maybe offended was the wrong term, but just by the shear fact that they think it's acceptable to publically insult their potential customers on a website is very pretentious. And no, I did not ask any of the questions listed, nor would I have asked them. Basically, this is a good way to turn off new people to an already dying hobby. Maybe you might not ask such dumb questions, but what about a 12 or 13 year old starting out who knows nothing? You'd be all sorts of pi$$ed off if your kid's question was on there, probably wouldn't think it was so cool or funny then.

    RE: Who do these people think they are?

    If my kid when he was 13 would of asked something as dumb as those questions he would deserve to get a reply like them. As I said only people this seems to be offending are the ones that ask dumb questions like that.

    Well said.

    I worked with/for the public for many years and most are great people, however there are a percentage who are just plain f$@#ed in the head and should have been strangled at birth. The section of the web page in question is undoubtedly a great circuit breaker for the staff who keep a straight face to the customer whilst thinking they have a "pearler" to add to the stupid question file.

    RE: Who do these people think they are?

    I got a bigger kick out of this thread than the original dumb questions themselves which of course were posted in for grins, we try not to take things too seriously around here.

    After all, we play with toys for a living...

    RE: Who do these people think they are?

    Now if I have a red car with flames, yellow & black racing stripes I would have a super fast car that is quick off the line with great straight line speed that has good resale value, but what colour rims for my tyres do I need to make corner better ?
