General Motors jokes


At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated: ”If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving twenty-five dollar cars that got 1000 miles to the gallon.” In response to Bill’s comments, General Motors issued a press release stating (by Mr. Welch himself): If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:

1. For no reason whatsoever your car would crash twice a day.

2. Every time they repainted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.

3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would just accept this, restart and drive on.

4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn, would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.

5. Only one person at a time could use the car, unless you bought ”Car95” or ”CarNT.” But then you would have to buy more seats.

6. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, reliable, five times as fast, and twice as easy to drive, but would only run on five per cent of the roads.

7. The oil, water temperature and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single ”general car default” warning light.

8. New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.

9. The airbag system would say ”Are you sure?” before going off.

10. Occasionally for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key, and grab hold of the radio antenna.

11. GM would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe set of Rand McNally road maps (now a GM subsidiary), even though they neither need them nor want them. Attempting to delete this option would immediately cause the car’s performance to diminish by 50% or more. Moreover, GM would become a target for investigation by the Justice Department.

12. Every time GM introduced a new model car buyers would have to learn how

to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

13. You’d press the ”start” button to shut off the engine.

Joke #14923 posted in the category: General Motors jokes.

Bill Gates is hanging out with the CEO of General Motors.

”If automotive technology had kept pace with computer technology over the past few decades, ” boasts Gates, ”you would now be driving a V-32 instead of a V-8, and it would have a top speed of 10, 000 miles per hour.

Or, you could have an economy car that weighs 30 pounds and gets a thousand miles to a gallon of gas. In either case, the sticker price of a new car would be less than $50.”

”Sure, ” says the General Motors CEO. ”But would you really want to drive a car that crashes four times a day?!!”

If People Bought Cars Like They Buy Computers

General Motors doesn’t have a ”help line” for people who don’t know how to

drive, because people don’t buy cars like they buy computers -- but imagine

if they did...

CALL #1:

HELPLINE: ”General Motors Helpline, how can I help you?”

CUSTOMER: ”I got in my car and closed the door, and nothing happened!”

HELPLINE: ”Did you put the key in the ignition slot and turn it?”

CUSTOMER: ”What’s an ignition?”

HELPLINE: ”It’s a starter motor that draws current from your battery and

turns over the engine.”

CUSTOMER: ”Ignition? Motor? Battery? Engine? How come I have to know all of

these technical terms just to use my car?”

CALL #2:

HELPLINE: ”General Motors Helpline, how can I help you?”

CUSTOMER: ”My car ran fine for a week, and now it won’t go anywhere!”

HELPLINE: ”Is the gas tank empty?”

CUSTOMER: ”Huh? How do I know?”

HELPLINE: ”There’s a little guage on the front panel, with a needle, and

markings from ’E’ to ’F.’ Where is the needle pointing?”

CUSTOMER: ”It’s pointing to ’E.’ What does that mean?”

HELPLINE: ”It means that you have to visit a gasoline vendor, and purchase

some more gasoline. You can install it yourself, or pay the vendor to

install it for you.”

CUSTOMER: ”What!? I paid $$12, 000 for this car! Now you tell me that I have

to keep buying more components? I want a car that comes with everything

built in!”

CALL #3:

HELPLINE: ”General Motors Helpline, how can I help you?”

CUSTOMER: ”Your car sucks!”

HELPLINE: ”What’s wrong?”

CUSTOMER: ”It crashed, that’s what went wrong!”

HELPLINE: ”What were you doing?”

CUSTOMER: ”I wanted to run faster, so I pushed the accelerator pedal all the

way to the floor. It worked for a while, and then it crashed -- and now it

won’t start!”

HELPLINE: ”It’s your responsibility if you misuse the product. What do you

expect us to do about it?”

CUSTOMER: ”I want you to send me one of the latest versions that doesn’t

crash anymore!”

CALL #4:

HELPLINE: ”General Motors Helpline, how can I help you?”

CUSTOMER: ”Hi! I just bought my first car, and I chose your car because it

has automatic transmission, cruise control, power steering, power brakes,

and power door locks.”

HELPLINE: ”Thanks for buying our car. How can I help you?”

CUSTOMER: ”How do I work it?”

HELPLINE: ”Do you know how to drive?”

CUSTOMER: ”Do I know how to what?”

HELPLINE: ”Do you know how to drive?”

CUSTOMER: ”I’m not a technical person! I just want to go places in my car!”
