    I was pondering an ethical question over the weekend - I saw one of the lads driving a girly car that belongs to his wife and I was wondering what the protocol should be. Which is better; to be seen driving the hairdressers car with the old doll in the passenger seat or leave her do it and contrive to look like you'd rather be anywhere else?

    Should you drive your wife's hairdressermobile? 26 votes

    Yes - it's better than letting her drive.

    There is only one thing worse than been seen driving a hair-dresser-mobile , and thats been seen as a passenger in one...


    If she does end up driving, sit in the back to make it look like you got a really cheap taxi....

    I saw a bloke driving a pink Yaris in Dublin cc yesterday. It could have belonged to his super-hot Swedish-Polish model girlfriend and I'd still have felt ashamed for him.

    There would need to be a good reason, but if there is, then if sober, it is always better to drive than let a woman do it.

    There is a bright pink Yaris or Micra always parked in Rathmines with eyelashes painted around the headlights. If he was driving that, he deserves a medal :D

    Pink cars are the work of the devil.

    I heard it leaks once a month and sometimes turns on... sometimes doesn't.

    Nice airbags though...

    Be a passenger unless she can't drive :eek: . Driving girly / silly car it is tantamount to endorsing her choice of car, or worse still implying that you condine it. On the over-riding BGRH element, always go for the lazy option, I once refused to drive my wife's car because the steering was too heavy (waste of effort) and the seats too low. (dignity issue when you had to fall out of the car)

    You drive of course..........







    straight to the dealer and beg him to take this gimp mobile (not to be confused with a pimp mobile) and give you a better more manly car.

    Honda s2000 only manly convertable...FACT

    And what do you drive? Not always true.

    There are other manly convertibles. I had my eye on one of these for a while too.

    Never drive, sit on passenger side and pretend to be pissed. Failing that, lie down in the back and get a blanket to cover your shame :)

    I once got a loan car while my van was being repaired. It was delivered so I had no choice. It was a pink punto. People were actually pointing and laughing at me in the street.

    I voted "Refuse to get into the car" but then again, if it's bringing me to and from the pub under darkness well............mmmmmmmmmm.

    That's because it was a Punto - nothing to do with the colour. :D
