dh. New job. Different hours. Further to drive. His car drinks more fuel than mine.

I predicted that he'd want to take my car not his. Financial logic agrees.

But I am actually pissed off.

It is my car. Mine. I bought it. I paid for ut. Mine.

And now it is my day off. All I need to do is tske DD and pick her up from her friday thing. I hate driving his car.

Be gentle. I have an evil cold and have yanked my back coughing. And i hurt.

Pass the wine to Annie. I used to like driving my little car and felt silly in great big monster DH had, but he used to like taking my little car sometimes as it was 'fun' to drive. Angry doesn't cover it!!! Hope the wines working!!

this happened to me a few years ago only my car was tiny and old and dh's car was lovely and new and faster than mine! I think I got the better end of the deal tbh, poor dh had to drive a citroen ax!

I hate when dh takes my car. Not because I don't like driving his but because my car is packed with emergency snacks, sweets, drinks, blankets, gloves, suntan lotion, books, make up, perfume,etc. I'm prepared for anything in my car. When I'm driving dh's car, I have to make do with the smell of polish and nothing else . . .not even a teeny tiny sweet. sad

If you work shifts it doesn't matter where you live, if it's more than walking distance from work you need a car. My shift last night finished at 3.00am, try getting any public transport at that time of night unless you work in central London.

Assuming he's intending on keeping this job he needs to get a more suitable car.

ssd, Mumsnet is full of things I'm jealous of: nannies, big houses, holidays... But people have what they have, they still have problems, and responding with "your problem is irrelevant because my life is worse" just makes you look, as you so rightly said, bitter and twisted, and doesn't contribute in any positive way. So why bother?

Teggie i hope you are feeling a bit better. I was a bit shock at the replies to your thread but envy can be a funny thing.

DH hates driving my car but that's because his is a company car so spanking new reg every 3 months, I don't like driving his because its not mine and iLife mine.

We have had our home broken into at night 3 times now purely for the keys to his spanking new Merc on the drive, I have woken to masked men in my house twice.

I doubt there is much envy there now?

My DH hates driving my car (and it's not a small car either), he just wouldn't take it unless it was an absolute emergency (his car broken down and not enough time to arrange hire/courtesy car etc).
I don't mind driving his, but I do prefer mine.

god no teggie, one pita man is enough for me!!

TeggieCampbeggBlegg Fri 22-Mar-13 21:27:37

wine for ssd.

You can have my second car if you like. But you have to have the H too.

ssd Fri 22-Mar-13 21:18:22

grin is that better

and to all the pissy "I see the perennial Mumsnet favourite game of Competitive Poverty is alive and well...." comments, well its because we're bloody jealous, it isnt rocket science, is it.... when you spend your days organizing 2 jobs/2 kids with busy social lives around one car then someone moans that their dh is driving their car, of course we're jealous...and bitter and twisted too!!

think I need some wine too!!

Picking child up at 9.

Then cracking open the red.

Still in a mood. DH is getting right on my tits.

I see the perennial Mumsnet favourite game of Competitive Poverty is alive and well.....

I hate driving DHs car as well.

lljkk Fri 22-Mar-13 20:12:20

yanbu, I feel your pain. I bought small car because I wanted small car & I could see DH needing it more than I do. I lurve my car & grimace when DH borrows it (much logical sense as it makes).

Teggie, you are really funny when you are grumpy. You can be my neighbour. We would be like Father Ted and that other bloke together.

A car each is a necesdity not a luxury.
And even if it were a luxury, so what? Are people with luxuries not entitled to be annoyed? I don't get all the bitterness on this thread. You picked and paid for it and now you don't get to enjoy your own car. How annoying for you.

I know, it's SHOCKING was hoping for a bit of a fight tbh, pregnant, tired, pelvic girdle pain, OH still at work as per bloody usual, could have done with someone to shout at grin

Purple shock <<shakes head sadly>>

Hmm what happened to the angry mob? Would it help if I said that one of our four cars between two drivers is a very thirsty sports car (mine) and that another is a 4x4 (his)? SURELY that's worthy of a bit if self righteous indignation and judgyness?
