you suddenly realise that the person you are talking to about your car knows absolutely nothing about cars ??
I had a conversation the other day with a girl at work.... the fact that i had recently got a new car came up and went something like this ;
Me: "yeah, i changed mine the other week actually"
Her: "oh right... what did u get"
Me: " a MK1 clio 172 sport"
Her: "oh i like clios.... my friends got a blue one"
Me: "er right"
Her: "what did u have b4 then ?"
Me: "golf vr6 highline"
her: "oh... golfs are nice as well"
me: "yes.. this one was... leather, aircon,sunroof, alloys , 3 litre engine"
her: "alloys ???? cool"
and that was it
jesus christ.. i expected more interest than that
Im not suggesting that this is limited to women in any way...ive had some equally poor conversations with blokes...
"nissan skyline?.. what are they... is it like a primera"
