Car ritual
When I was at Uni, I had a crappy car - a bright red Volks Wagon Polo.

It cost me all of £450, and to be fair, wasn't much to look at, but ran well.


I wasn't earning a huge amount of money - as I only had a part time job.
I saved up and bought a new CD player for the car, nothing fancy, but still £90 from argos. (£90 was a huge deal back then considering I only earned about £240 a month from my part time job)

The car was crap, but the tunes were good, and it was fun to drive again.


One fateful saturday morning, I woke up and headed out to work. I saw that the seats in my car were pushed forward, and the drivers door was ajar.

Some pikey bastard had nicked the CD player, and fucked up the lock on the door.

I was gutted.


This was 12 years ago, and to this day, I now cannot get out of the habit of performing this ritual.

Take the facia plate off my CD player,

Lock the car, then pull the door handle 3 times.

With each pull I say, Definitely, Definitely, Locked.

Then I can walk away.

I've lived in places where the morning routine was
Walk to car
Open door (if door not already open)
Sweep broken glass from seat (place plastic bag on wet seat)
Try not to think about why seat is wet but hope it's rain regardless.
Try to insert key into mangled ignition.
Walk back to house and call cops again.
Walk to work.

You lucky, lucky bastard!!

I have to:

turn off lights, and any ancillaries (e.g. heated screen, heated seat etc).

Turn off everything via the secret "kill" switch that is cunningly located in a certain place.

Lock the steering lock.

Fit the Clutch Claw, fit the Stop Lock to the steering wheel.

Collapse & have a breather before climbing the 64 steps to my flat!

I used to drive a VW Polo and I could break into yours with a penknife in about 10 seconds

I'm sure you could
Alas, it was scrapped many moons ago.

I drive a different car now :)

Are you sure you just locked it?

You better go and check it, Just in case

There really is no point
you might as well leave the doors open, they are that easy to break into
