Got a story for you Des Plaines. My son stopped at his local library to study, on the way home from work. He went to charge his Volt and a guy in a Tesla asked him if he could get in the slot. There were only 3 slots and two were taken. It seems his charge was about depleted.

Oh my ... a Tesla owner kissing a Volt owner's arss.

And by the way, your tesla is a pimple. Your is the match box version, right?

By the way peter the repeater ... in the second video, the car is in gas mode. Hear anything?

All these world class race car drivers swear by the handling capabilities of the Volt. The dolt should give them a piece of his mind. You tellum' dolt.

By the way ... the Volt is limited to 100 mph. Those other cars weren't limited.

I already posted a video of a Volt doing 0-60 in 5.5. The car still had one limiter on.

Please, please no more lies. You said something like that 100 pages ago.

Not a Donald Trump wannabe. Just someone who wanted to enjoy life at 50. If I wanted to have more money, I would still be working like you. You don't need much when you have zero debt.

I guess you want to be the richest guy in the graveyard.

If you're bored with me .... then shut up. If that was the last time you slam me ... you will never hear from me again.

Quite frankly, I find you very hateful. The fact that only the haters like you proves that. Nothing to brag about.

So drop it now. End of conversation.

By the way ... you couldn't keep your promise made on this page. You said you would never comment about me again.

The very next comment, you slammed me one more time. That is why I am telling you to keep your promise and shut up.

This is the last time I talk about you if you keep your promise .... yeah right.

There is still the inference being made that I stated that the Volt cost $15,000 less than the top of the line Accord, after 5 years. Not so. Never happened. Never said that.

For anyone wanting to know the truth, go to comment 4099 on page 199. I said:

"Factor in $9,000 in credits most CA Volt owners get and you have a difference of $15,000."

The Volt makes up $15,000 on the Accord. Those are KBB facts. Not mine.

Apologies for the off topic post, but perhaps it's time to say something about all the hate, hater, and hateful talk which appears so frequently in this forum.

The word "hater" is very common in today's English slang. From reading some of the posts here, I think one could use that word to describe some of the silliness.

Please excuse another off topic post.

Perhaps it's time to say something about how we're constantly bombarded here with self serving boasts about "my house paid for, I'm debt free, Envy me, Retired at 50", blah, blah, blah..

Such accomplishments are indeed noteable, but repeating this so frequently indicates something to hide, and it can often be a sign of insecurity.

When it happens so frequently one wonders why.

Most who have accomplished the same or more are quite comfortable with it and aren't compelled to boast to others.

You're absolutely right about it being a fairly common word.
And also about the silliness here.

(There's an abundance of silliness, but not a lot of "hate" that I can see)

But when that sentiment is repeated and repeated and repeated by one person, it's a clear indication that particular someone has a lot of hate somewhere in his life--imagined and otherwise.

I used the term "Hater Hater" a while back.

Definition of a "Hater Hater" is: "Someone who hates others he sees as haters"

I think this terminology applies.

Key words are "someone he sees as...."

The apple didn't fall far from your tree. Sounds like your son is a bigger miser than you! Instead of going home to his family he hangs out at the library just to mooch free electricity.

What's the matter dolt? Can't get away from the pump?

And by the way, my son has to study constantly for his job. He is lead systems engineer at his work.

FYI, technology changes constantly in that field. That's why he has to study. That's why he lives where he lives. Makes my house look teenie tiny.

I'm sure the hater is going to tell me how spiteful I am now.

I think I held back pretty good considering how the dolt took a personal swipe at my family. Of course, the hater doesn't care about that. My family is fair game to him.

That's called letting your dogs do your dirty work.

He's going to remind me how others took swipes at him but I remained silent. Perhaps I remain silent because it's none of my business. Unlike him, I don't consider myself the moderator here.

Try remaining silent, hater. When I defend my family, keep your trap shut.

And I notice that you don't comment on the Tesla owner or the Leaf owners that were plugged in. Only my son. Is it because he is my son or is it because he has a Volt?

Either way, you are a hater making negative comments constantly.

The hater is going to point out how negative I am. I am willing to bet that you can go back 60 pages and I have posted more positive comments than the dolt, by a long shot.

Hint. The dolt has never posted a positive comment here. Ever. The hater doesn't mind that. In fact, he has patted him on the head several times for his spiteful comments. That's called being hypocritical.

For hose who seek status by boring us repeatedly with their "accomplishments"... ..
There are 35 employees at my second business.
It's a high tech industrial solution provider involving custom software development, robotics, vision system design and manufacturing operation.
We've been in business, growing from just 2 employees since 1992.
One son and a daughter-in-law now run it. I go in when I feel like it, and also do some occasional customer support work from time to time.
Semi retirement is delightful--I believe man was never intended to be a couch potato.
Auto manufacturers in Canada, US, and Mexico are 60 percent of our customers.
Two employees are systems engineers, 6 are software developers, 4 are electrical and mechanical design engineers, 8 are field integrators, 2 are project managers, and the rest are support staff with varying responsibilities.
Gross revenue last year was just under $24mm.

There, For the benefit of the boastful participants in this forum, is a brief overview of what I think is a modest success in life.
A story which won't be repeated, because I deplore boastfulness!
Especially, like some do here, when it's intent is to demean others.

His name was never mentioned subsequently.
Funny how he identified with what I've posted.
Must be a guilt complex there.

The apple didn't fall far the the tree in the iluvmyVolt family. His son is so cheap he hangs out at the library mooching free electricity, instead of going home to spend time with the wife and kids.
