Don't miss the fine print

by Volker Weber

Maybe the typical customer needs this warning, because he would otherwise attempt. ;-)


Every single car commercial in the USA has this small print. I can only guess what law suits got settled because of some idiot thinking they could drive their car under water (or something). Now, the whole country is considered stupid, hence the small print!

Which reminds me of a true story:

A BMW engineer who shall remain nameless was talking to a colleague in the US. This guy was bragging about how they could laser "Objects in the rear view mirror are closer then they appear" on said mirrors. Audi guy says: "We don't have this on our mirrors." US guys asks seriously: "What is written on your mirrors?" BMW guys wants to say "Nothing" (which is true) and then decides to pull the other guy's leg and says with a straight face: "Objects in the mirror are behind you". Next BMW guy who overhears this spills his drink.
