I dont know if any of you guys have this problem but what really chaps my *** is after I'm done washing the car and I take it out to pick up a buddy or a girl and they roll down the window. Well the rubber is still wet and when they put the window back up, there are drips of water that stay on the window ...plus now i'm without a shammy as well because I'm out. That calls for some sleeve drying ! UUGGHH it pisses me offf !

That one cracked me up...it'* soooo true! I drop the kids off at school everyday...and everyday they try opening the door before I put it in park....today I got smart...I hit the power locks as I pulled up and said, "Goodbye...love you....now jump".

I hate it when the kids use their feet (muddy at times) to push open the door....

And I tell them..."consider this to be a national park...whatever you bring in with you, you take out..." ...solves the trash problem.

I have only one rule -- treat my car with respect.

Haven't had any issues yet.

"Knock the excess snow off of your boots BEFORE you get in the car. I would prefer not to have to shovel the inside of the car."

"Stop pulling on the door handle. One of the signs of mental illness is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result. Either push the door button, or I will unlock it for you. Either way, we will both get what we want. You... out of my car."

"No, not all. Of course it wasn't a bad idea to give little Irving a chocolate pudding to keep him quiet in the back seat. You can barely see it on the beige upholstery."

"I'm sorry. I have the base model Bonneville, it doesn't have the detachable steering wheel. If you want to drive just reach over the seat."

"My aunt, may she rest in peace, once changed my radio in the middle of a song. Once."

"No. I only drive like this way when you are in the car. All the rest of the time I don't have a death wish."

1999.5 and newer VW - you can actually do it. The lock lever goes right into the door when you lock, pulling the handle brings it up, pull again - door open. Sure as hell tripped me out


Being a Beaterville, I'm not picky. Don't **** around, and buckle up...

Funny you should mention that one. I was driving home on Saturday night after an evening of poker and I noticed snow on the road. As I drove by, out flys a snowball and hits the car, ( BTW it was 1am). I was alone as Renee went home earlier since she had to get up early. I hit the brakes, reversed to the road and went down the side street so fast I was drifting around the corner, I mean a full nice drift. I stopped BEHIND where these kids were, they seen me and didn't know what to do. I jumped out of the car, but they were GONE. I drove around the area trying to spot them so I could kick their asses, but nothing.

I decided to park the car further up the road where it was dark ( new subdivision going up). I finally seen them come back 15-20 minutes later. fire up the car, burn down the street and they took off again. I got out locked the car and tried to see if I could see footprints as to where they went, and I even stopped and tried to listen for them, but nothing. After another 20 mins or so I decided to leave but still wanted to kick their asses. I have no clue how old, they were but I was ready for them. Funny thing is that I am NOT a person that tries to get into fights, but this just royally pissed me off.
