Default How to politely say no?!

First exotic, need help with some handy ways to say no. I learned this weekend that everyone and their uncle asks to sit in, drive, or rev, your car.

Unless they’re your family or maybe a young kid, just say no, maybe next time.

I just say, my wife/son/brother/sister hasn't even sat it in yet. I promised they would be the first.... or something along that line.

I’ve never had that problem, maybe because I’m in an older generation. I get people asking to take photos, that’s it.

I let some kids sit in mine at a gas station and they got mud in it. So now I am more reluctant or just look at their shoes. As far as revving it, that's a definite nope. So driving it is a no, except for my son, but he doesn't drive it unless I am with him. The only time I toss someone the keys and say it's yours is the dealer(Lambo Dallas) to get it serviced.

I say "Sorry, but if I let you in then I have to let everyone in and I just don't have time for that."

As my wife says, "You have a lambo: Just own it"

Everyone? How about...
$0 for outside photo, $50 to sit in, $100 to rev, $200 to drive in short distance

I let people take photos outside and kids sit in it for parents to take their photos. But I don’t often offer rides to anyone not very close and or family. I blame tight insurance controls in my policy ... which is just accurate enough to not be a lie and just nebulous enough that no one questions me.

That said, I try to be an ambassador of the car and I’m sure you all do as well. I just don’t have time to take everyone for rides. Then there’s the potential liability which puts a wet blanket on my desire to take people on rides. So, there’s many ways that you could say no, but you may not want to say no to everyone.

I used to let anyone sit in mine if they asked. I felt like I had a social responsibility to share the joy. Then at a local car show a young boy jumped in the driverís seat, then decided to immediately crawl over into the passenger seat, somehow getting his dirty shoes on both the armrest AND the ceiling. His parents watched the entire mind-bending episode and didnít say a word.
I walked around to the other side, lifted the scissor door and threw the kid across the parking lot.
Then I had to move to a new city.
Moral of the story: donít hesitate to say ďnoď.
