People who don't hang on to the door when they open it on a really windy day
Other people in there cars or trucks who put door dings on my vehicles
People who put really large objects in the nets behind the fronts seats and stretch out the nets

3. when the doors lock automatically, and people want to get out, they pull it once, and are like "i cant get out" so instead of pushing the unlock button they keep pulling at the handle because they think it will "magically" open sometime
This one pisses me off. They sit there going "I can't get out, what'* wrong with your door?" yanking the handle, just push the damn button!

Luckily none of my friends dared to mess with my Bonne. One friend thought about TPing it at my wedding reception but another buddy was like "You know he'll kill you" and that pretty much stopped that.

What does urk me is when people use the rear ashtrays for trash like gum wrappers.

just be glad you don't have a ford explorer. my friend always had people sit in the back seat and they would always mess with the doors and handles and he ended up replacing about 5 broken door handles, he basically started to have extras in his garage because they broke so much.

My parents live in Ohio, we live in California. One of the reasons we got my Bonneville was so we could them on trips in comfort when they come to visit. My parents are older and retired, and whenever we arrive home or at our destination, they're always clawing at the door handle lever to get out before the car is off, when the doors are still locked. Since they aren't familiar with the door lock controls on my car, they continue to try the door handle, push on the door, and claw at it like a dog trying to get out.

You'd figure after the first time or two they'd learn to wait until the car is off, but they never do, and it cracks me up every single time.

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 H*** tripped me out Laughing
my Audi is like that you pull the handle once, it unlocks the door. you pull it again and voila! the door opens! its great

I am super anal and most wont ride with me because their are too many rules for them.

No one under the age of 16.(Young kids are just too messy and don't listen)
Absolutely no smoking in or around the car.
No food period.
Liquids have to have caps and must open it for the first time outside the vehicle.(U know incase it explods or sprays a little)
Window locks on at all time if you want the window down I will roll it down for you.
At no time shall you touch the window on the inside or outside of the car.

I don't have any strict rules, I mean it'* just a car

My only hard and set rules are as follows

No Smoking

Eating and drinking (non-alcoholic of course) is fine, but any spills can lead to your consumption privileges being revoked

No messing with the radio without permission (Unless you are my wife, and then only if it'* not AC/DC on the radio)

Other then that I just expect people to behave in a manner that reflects common sense and courtesy

DISCLAIMER rules can be added to and changed at any given time without advanced notice as I see necessary, in other words don't act like an *** and I won't kick you like one

dont slam my doors. i dont slam your face into my doors, dont slam my doors

dont put your feet up on the dash. i dont put my feet in your face, dont put them on my dash

dont tell me how its a granny car. i could run over you without even thinking twice

dont tell me your civic is faster. sugar in your gas tank will slow it down considerably

dont eat in my car.

dont drink in my car. if youre drinking it, it better dang well be water. if its not, be prepared to drink it through your nose

dont open your doors fast. if i find a ding and can trace is back to you, i will dremel your windows.

dont put shopping carts near my car. i cant be held responsible for tire irons hurled inexplicably at your car if you do.

These are my rules. Abide by them, and the world will be a better place.
