I don't need an electric wheelchair 'cause fire shoots out my butt

As I wait impatiently for my new bad ass manual chair (like, it is a sweet little thing, all *latest technology* *aerodynamic* *ultralight* yadda yadda), it occurs to me that the question, 'why don't you get an electric chair' is one with which I am having an increasingly hard time shrugging off without wanting to be like because I have super strong arms *BAM* SEE? I'm not on the brink of violence, honest, but would like some help quelling you know, those tendencies toward belligerence. To that end, what are a range of responses that will shock (in not a mean way).

This would be to the person who just approaches me on the street, all, 'by, have you heard of this wild concept called electric wheelchairs it will change your life.' I don't want to be hateful and/or gross, but I do want to freak the person out a little bit. The best I can come off the top of my head is to say, 'O actually I am upgrading to a jet pack. Arriving next week!' Which seems not so good to me, but quick wit is not really my thing. Any ideas? Bonus for generating a response (not a hostile one) in my neighborhood Upper Darby/ West Philly.
