One stop on errands run this morning was neighborhood hardware store to take advantage of 2 day sale on premium top soil. I went in and paid for 10 bags and they had young man meet me at the mountain of bags in the parking lot to load my car. Very nice gesture. I watched him in my rearview mirror and backup camera as he directed me backing into position. I turned off the car.

Then it started. He stared at me in mirror and I stared at him in the mirror for what was way too long. Then the following converstion was through the open pano roof-

Me: "It's not electric".
Him: nothing.
Me: "Grab the handle in the center near the bottom of the tailgate".
He opens it.
Him: "Nice truck".
Me: "Thanks. 32,000 miles. Next one will probably be electric gate. Sorry".
Him: "OK".

Hey! He thought your Jeep is a luxury car, like the Land Rovers.

I didn't think I lived in an "upscale" neighborhood, but maybe I do based on what this kid is expecting to see.

Perhaps, he was waiting for you to come back there and open the door for him. :cool:

At least he called the Jeep a "truck" and not a "car". hehe :)

Or it's just part of this younger generation who expect everything done electronically for them and not have to move a finger...hence the power liftgate (this while I'm in my mid-30s mind you):slapfight:

The kid probably wouldn't like the 2 piece tailgate that the Land Rover has. Would have been more work pushing the bags over that awkward lower tailgate that those things have.

I brought gloves as I actually expected to load it myself. I did chat with him before I got in the vehicle to move it into position. After all I did unload it myself!!

And if I were lucky enough to load your Jeep I would have said, " nice tires too" ( from an earlier PM, thanks).

Sunroof open = nice day. Nice day = go outside to load cutomers cars/truck. Go outside = not stuck inside...this kid should have thanked you twice.:D
