Has anyone else been annoyed by this commercial?  It goes a little like this:

Daughter:  Dad, can you drop me off a block before we get to the theatre.

Dad:  Sure

Daughter:  It’s just becauase people in that part of town are all riding bikes and have hybrids and stuff.

Dad:  Well, this is a hybrid.

Daughter:  A hybrid hybrid? 

And it goes on…

Is this really what society has come to?  Guilting our kids into pressuring parents to buy them hybrids?  I’m all for the environment, but isn’t this a little smug? Now our kids are going to be embarrassed by us if we don’t have a Hybrid? Make them cheaper, then i’ll think about it. Not because my kid’s friends’ parents have them.
