No, I’m not referring to lovely backsides. I am referring to the actual junk that one has in their car. Let me explain. I’ve been driving for over 3 years now and since I’m always going from one place to another, changing what I wear numerous times in the process, I tend to fill my stuff with all sorts of things…clothes, bags, files, tech stuff…and shoes. I had to take my car in for some repairs and it came to my attention that I have a lot of shoes in my car. Well by a lot I mean around 10-12 pairs. They’re usually not the pretty ones but ordinary pumps and the occasional pair of boots.
Now a friend of mine, after giving her the warning that I might have a couple of pairs of shoes lying about, highlighted the fact that different people have different junk in their car and that I should write a post trying to understand what this says about a person. So here it is, my thoughts on what the junk we have in our cars could say about us…
I know all about this, of course. I’m not really a shoe person, not that I don’t love a pretty pair of shoes like the next girl, but I’m not the type to go al gaga over a pair of shoes. Therefore me having loads of pairs of shoes shows two things, I don’t really care that much about shoes to bother with making sure they’re kept in all the right boxes and all that and that I have crazy schedules which require me to carry plenty of stuff all around.
You know people like these for sure. You sit down in their car and all you see are old bottles of beer or vodka or wine. These people are probably laid back people who couldn’t be bothered with drinking at a pub or at a restaurant. These people probably also have the best stories to tell because, let’s be honest, drinking in a car always leads to the craziest of times, right?
This is an easy one. If you enter a car full of footballs and football shoes and bicycle helmets you know that this person loves sport. These people are usually the ones with a gym bag always in the backseat ready to run to the gym or to a football pitch at any chance they get.
And then there are these people who have absolutely nothing in their car. No small change, no empty shopping bags, nothing. I know people like this and I feel very stressed when I walk into their car, especially if I’m lugging around 3 different carry-ons and have no idea whether I should hold everything next to me (more like on top of me) or put it in the back seat (which is pristine of course). I usually just stand there, trying to hide behind my bags.
So, any junk in your trunk?
