    Ok, so my buddy got me the Tesla tumbler for my birthday which of course being a fanboy I absolutely love. Question is, how much of a tool am I to use said tumbler when also driving a Tesla. Questioning my peeps and students, so far it's been 50/50 that I am a tool for doing such.

    Of course at the end of the day, I care little of what others think of me...

    No more of a loser than wearing my Tesla hat, t-shirt or jacket (although not all three at once) while driving my Tesla.

    Oh and I have a lanyard that I hang my Tesla key.

    I think I know which 50% I fall into.

    oh man, I have the tumbler and have had the same thoughts. But, being the tool that I am, I decided I don't really care. I don't really worry too much about people who don't know me but want to judge me on something like that, and everyone who DOES know me already knows what a tool I am! (and love me anyway)

    I wouldn't worry about it. People buy shirts, hats, coffee mugs... etc all the time for cars they have or what to own.

    Did they change the design of the tumbler? When I looked at one at a Tesla Gallery last year, they didn't fit in the cup holders.

    Oh, and don't forget to ask for your free hat next time you're at a store/gallery. I went to buy one and they asked if I had received my "Tesla Driver's Group" hat.

    Seems like a Tesla tumbler should be one of those wide-bottom things you can put on the floor :cool:
