Post subject:  Do you name your car or know people who do?

The other thread reminded me of this.

Everyone in my family names their vehicles. Most people I talk to have some sort of pet name for their car.. but those that don't think those of us that do are strange.

Anyway... my car's name is Baby. My oldest siblings Hummer is Sebastian II. My mom's van is Nelly. The truck is Bruce (uhm.. don't ask). Nana's car is "Itty Bitty".

Hrm. I don't know whats scarier the fact the vehicles are named.. or the fact that my middle sibling is allowed to drive. :lol:

Depends. If it's running fine, I don't call it anything. If it's not (and, that's usually the case) then I have a whole list of names to go through that could get me in trouble here.

I knew one person who named her car. She was almost as big as her car come to think of it. Maybe she saw it as a peer. She called the car Poppy (it was red.) She was the worst driver in NJ. When I drove with her I'd break fingernails clutching the dash and wear my heels down to a nub braking the imaginary pedal. Back at work she used to hang out in front of any number of offices (where the males sat of course) and rub her back up & down their door jam to scratch it [like a grizzly in heat].

Your car must be related to my truck. At least it sounds as if they have the same last name. My trucks first name is "you good for nothing" and it's all downhill from there. My son always thought that was cute. Till I reminded him I got the truck before he was born so that was one name that was used up. Yes he does have a sense of humor.

Are you implying only fat people name their cars? :shock: :wink:

Heh.. Jen drives like a maniac, I use the "Oh sh*t" bar frequently when I'm a passenger and she is the driver.

Hey.. speaking of worst drivers did anyone catch the thing in Readers Digest about which horoscope signs make the worst drivers? :lol:

As for using the door jam (is it jam or jamb?) to scratch backs.. well, I used to do that.. not in front of anyone, just at home. Shoot, when you're at the office or out and about you can always find someone to scratch your back for you. :D
