to park my car where it will have the best view for the day while I am on a course.

I chose a space that had the best view, locked up and left the car for the whole day. I had to walk further to get to where i was going, but it felt right.

I'm losing it aren't I?

Best view for you to be able to keep an eye on the car? Or best view so that the car had interesting things to look at? grin

So the car would have a sea view. hmm

Well, I worry that my car (restoration project) will get cold outside. I told DH he needs to either clear out the garage so we can fit it in or I'm buying her -yes, it's a she-- an airtight bubble for Christmas.

grin

What a considerate owner you are!

Does your car talk to you?

FrustratedSycamoreSnowflake Wed 05-Dec-12 20:50:55

And loads of salt air to assist with the rusting? Yabu. That's just cruel to your car.

this is what it feels like right before you have a mental breakdown isn't it?

Convict224 Wed 05-Dec-12 20:51:51

Perfectly normal. I like to vary my route so mine doesn't get depressed driving the same old roads every day.

There was a gap in the hedge too, so it was uninterrupted views of the sea.

My car is a classic and I treat it the same. I hate when I can't see it and cleared the garage and had extra locks installed for it.

I loves me car.

bradyismyfavouritewiseman Wed 05-Dec-12 20:53:16

Nope sorry misread.

You wanted the car to have a good view?

No never done that.

FuriousRox Wed 05-Dec-12 20:53:17

Is the car called herbie or something..? Does it refuse to start if it's had to stare at a wall all day?
Yanbu, though. Your car, your rules. Happy car, happy driver. And all that.

Do you know that assigning emotions to inanimate objects is a symptom of ASD? My DH has to rotate which shoes he wears so none of them feel left out. He doesn't have a dx of ASD but it wouldn't surprise me!

This is so funny, thank you, you are very caring and is probably something I would do.

thatlldopigthatlldo Wed 05-Dec-12 20:54:49

i feel bad for my car. it's not a classic, it's a poor old fiat punto.

i think it liked the sea, it defrosted quickly for me when i got back in. I used to have a ford escort that would get moody with me for not using it.

I always park Esme in nice places and so that she has interesting company. Not unreasonable at all ;-)

SantasLittleControlGeek Wed 05-Dec-12 20:55:23

I have a smart car and a land rover. If I see another smart car I like to park mine near it so it has a 'friend' to talk to. With my Landie, she's a v old series II and I love to park her within spitting distance of a modern land rover to 'show what a real landrover looks like'. I always imagine her having a bit of a spit and snarl when I am out of view.

YANBU.

Lifeisontheup Wed 05-Dec-12 20:57:32

Goldmandra That's really interesting, DS has ASD and does not do this but I used to feel sorry for potatoes when I peeled them, I worried they'd be cold all undressed. I have trained myself to be less sensitive now but still assign feelings to random objects. Perhaps DS's ASD has been inherited from me.

That is interesting. I used to have rotas for my toys to sleep in bed with me when I was little so that none of them felt left out - and i knitted them all little Christmas stockings! Wonder what that says about me...

thatlldopigthatlldo Wed 05-Dec-12 21:00:25

no ASD.

Youaresoright Wed 05-Dec-12 21:02:50

YANBU I do this

Artemis206 Wed 05-Dec-12 21:03:48

I can understand that one Santas. I park mine next to other 206's if I can, it's so she isn't lonely blush.

Beamur Wed 05-Dec-12 21:03:58

You are loopy (but in a nice way)
I think I also used to worry as a child that toys would feel left out if not played with/cuddled, although I do seem to have grown out of that kind of behaviour..
I have only ever named one car but I have never imagined them to have personalities.
