cars

my biggest complaint is that most(not all) guys don't drive nice cars. ok, so not all guys can drive nice cars, but at least you could keep them clean, and make them not smell like poo.

RE: cars

Gold diggers like you suck. Not to mention that most women I know have dirty, smelly cars. Men aren't the only slobs, y'know?

RE: cars

i am going to have to agree that you suck for saying that. i know a few dickhead guys that drive nice cars, maybe i could introduce you to them. it seems as though you would get along with them quite nicely.

RE: cars

hey thanks for seeing it from my point of view. i'm not saying that he has to drive an Escalade or Aston Martin. i am saying that as long as he takes pride in his car, and keeps it looking nice and non-stinky. i'm happy.

RE: cars

A car is a way to get from point a to b. When I bought my truck, it was already messy. I keep the interior clean, but I'll be damned if I'm going to sink any money into it to make it look nice. I had a Jeep I did that with and it quickly became a money pit. I bought this vehicle for practical reasons, not to "pick up chicks". I'm out of high school. I no longer associate people's cars w/their personalities. That is a marketing ploy by companies like Saturn and Volkswagon.

RE: cars

I feel ya gal. My man has a mediocre car and it runs well, I don't need a sports car, but every time I get in, he has to clean the floor and the seat! And since he never does clean it with like Armor All and the such, the inside door handle is like sticky just cause it is all rubbery and nasty....ewww. A car wash is like $10 man!

RE: cars

A car is an extension of the owner. If you don't care enough for a simple piece of machinery, you probably don't keep your home clean, your office clean, or yourself clean. Too often the messy car is typical of the personality. Many years ago I started using this in interviews of people looking for jobs at my company. If at the end of the interview I am leaning towards hiring, I would walk him/er out to their car. Steaming heap? I go to the next candidate.

BTW. She's not a gold digger, she simply knows what she likes, and says so.

She's say's she likes a nice car. That equates to money. Which leads to the title of "Golddigger". I don't nessicarily agree with it, but if you write someone off by what they drive then you are very shallow and materialistic.

What sort of company do you run that you won't hire people if they don't drive a clean ride? That's quirky. And you are wrong on the above statement. A car is only an extention of an insecure person. Maybe it represents your dik, but I'd rather spend my money on things that are more important to me then to try and make up for any "shortcomings". My dik doesn't need representation, it does quite well on it's own.

So you wouldn't hire me because I don't shine the rims and polish the paint on my '91 Dakota. Thank god, it would be hell working for the germans anyways. You're not in middle management, are you?

RE: cars

When I left the big city and moved to the Berkshires I was low on $$ and drove an '86 Nissan pick-up (yes, they made/make pick-ups) with a Dodge bed so I could get myself settled comfortably.

And you know what...you superficial motha-truckers...I take a shower every day, wear clean clothes, I'm educated, have done the corporate thing and discovered that I'd rather drive an '86 pick up and live in the country than deal with the b/s of working for people who care about what I drive and how I maintain it.

RE: cars

i thought oddtodd.com was different- where people wouldn't get jumped all over if they couldn't find exactly the right words to convey their thoughts. maybe it's cuz i'm a woman and share the same opinion as virginia, but i had no trouble understanding that she didn't mean guys need to drive a lexus, only that they ought to keep their ride clean and un-stinky.

you may be very proud of that science project growing in the big mac container, but it's not a turn-on.

and although you may not believe a car is an extension of your personality, it is. you don't have to be in high school (read: immature, by your standards) to see that your personality is "i don't give a flying f**k what you think of me." good for you!

now go un-bunch your panties, you ignoramous.

RE: cars

See....just goes to show how people interpret what others say. I never once thought that the interviewer was superficial. I didn't take the steaming heap comment to mean an older car, merely a car that someone has chosen not to clean in a very long time. Men seem to like the fact that their girldfriends look nice, but the minute we sit on a nasty french fry or get something equally nasty on our shoe from the floor of his nasty car we are made to look like gold diggers as well as superficial. Not everyone wants a car payment nor can afford it, thus the older car, we have all been there. But even when Iw as driving my 1984 Chevette (yes, Chevette) I kept it clean. Aso, I can only imagine that J-town must be a total slob and expects his woman or his mom to pick up after him. It wouldn't have offended him so much if he was keeping his car clean :-)

RE: cars

j-town and daisey got it all wrong. she's not expecting every guy she goes out with to get down on his hands and knees and spit-shine his muffler. noone has said mazda pick-ups denote a lack of personal hygiene. now if u had let your mazda's interior deteriorate to the point when it starts to smell like things left by my cat in her litter box, that's where she's drawing the line

RE: cars

Just to clarify, and I should've done this first off...I was responding to "the boss," not to the original post. I didn't misinterpret what Virginia said. She doesn't like a mess...fine. I was horrified that someone would decide not to hire a person because they had McDonalds' wrappers or old magazines piled in their car. That's just dumb.
