Talkback Tuesday: Faux Pas

Tuesday is "Talkback" day, where I share what other people have to say

People comment on Odyssey every day. They often seem amazed about how big it is. Something about the unusual chassis design and paint job make the bus appear huge to some folks. We overheard one campground host (who should be familiar with RV lengths) tell another camper that our rig was at least 65 feet long.

For the record, Odyssey is 39 feet 4 inches long, and 13 feet tall. A bit taller than most, but a pretty normal length for a motorhome.

So, I suspect that he meant "monster" when the guy at the rest area asked:

"Is that your monstrosity?"

Here's a hint: if you'd like to start a conversation with someone about their vehicle, don't start out with an insult.

Sean says hindsight is 20/20, and that he should have retorted, "No, sir, that's my wife!"
