top ten reasons people gave for driving SUV's

CNN's Jeannie Most did a story this morning on the SUV's. John Edwards is asking people to "sacrifice" and give them up.

These are the most common reasons they gave for driving an SUV:
10. SUV lust-- "I love my SUV"
9. Lots of room to haul stuff
8. Lots of kids
7. Lots of kids and pets
6. Has John Edwards given up his SUV? (he doesn't drive one)
5. Belongs to the company
4. It's my money
3. I like it
2. It's my right to drive what I want
1. This is a rental

For most people, it's a cooler replacement for a station wagon. They never use the 4 wheel drive. I loved my jeep, and will have another one day.

Yeah apparently they don't use the 4 wheel drive in PA either.

I was really shocked at how many SUV's rolled over in accidents last winter. The cars were usually just off the side of the highway into a ditch, while the SUV was a roll over.

I think one problem is people think they're invincible behind the wheel of those things, and the wrecks prove otherwise.

I don't like them because I don't want to park them. I do like the size of the Kia Sportage, though. It's not huge, like some of them.

Give a 4 wheel drive to an idiot and you have an idiot with 4 wheel drive. It has nothing to do with steering, stopping, and driving skills and good sense.

BTW, if women hire only ugly maids and babysitters the guys will just look for what they need somewhere else if the little lady isn't giving it to them. Just saying is all.

Hmmm, so if a guy isn't getting it at home, his natural response is to go elsewhere? Strange. If my husband isn't feeling well and I want it, I turn to my vibrator, not a stranger. Any reason why guys can't use their own hands? Or is that too much like expecting them to do some work;)

John Edwards can suck the tail pipe of my Expedition. I can't stand that guy. Just saying....

*Goddess* said...

Ok, Becky, I think we can safely mark you as one of those people who are NOT giving up their SUV's...LOL;)

They do use their hands, all the time. Ask anyone. But we have the capacity to separate love from boffing, and will always long for the tight this and fill breasted that... Just the way we're wired.
