My car is a “she”

25 03 2014

My car is called Rosie.

  • I’ve had her just over 3 years, she is ten years old, and has her own little personality.
  • If you go over a bump in the road, or even a drain cover, the CD player skips, and sometimes stops altogether.
  • If you sit in traffic and put the windscreen wipers on, the signal cuts out at the top of each sweep.
  • If you unlock the car and don’t do anything after 30 seconds she locks like any other car – but she doesn’t know that you’ve opened the drivers door, so she locks even if you open that.
  • The passenger window only goes part way down.
  • The headlight went about 5 times in 3 years because of a dodgy cable.

There are probably many things I’ve forgotten here.

But she has character, and I love her for it!

I get laughed at for saying she has character, or even that I call her a she or give her a name.

Yet don’t people call expensive boats and cars “she”? I think it gives her value, I don’t think it’s silly at all!
She has her little faults, but she’s dependable 🙂
