I got into her car and noticed a red spot on the driver's side carpet. I said "did you cut yourself"? "No", she answered, "I dropped my lipstick"

I cleaned up the spot.

The next time she got into My car, she pulled down the visor and started to put on her lipstick. I said "OK, Pocahontas, enough with the war paint". It didn't go over well.

I've started to use the "AIS" Procedure. I ask her when she will be ready to go. SHe gives me a tie and I say "AIS" and the time. AIS = A$$ IN Seat.


I have left her.

the funniest thing I have read all day...LOL!!

EVERYONE that sits in my car the first time either closes the door too soft, slams it too hard, or uses the window to close it and not the handles leaving fingerprints all over the windows... its is freeking frustrating!
I just make it a point to tell everyone before they get off the car to 'not touch the window please while closing the door'... they usually get it the first time... they know this cars special so they respect it.

Good one! In the past I would say "did you get that DOOR CLOSED okay???"

I don't know why, but very girl I dated slammed the door, and I'm over 50 so I've dated a long time. I just fockin hate seeing the huge handprint on the window the next day too.

My current Hun however has never slammed the doors on my car and I haven't had to teach her, and she loves my M almost as much as I do.

Gotta keep her.

just let them know not to do it but don't say it in a rude way. I did that when I took a girl out after the first time she slammed my door and did so by pushing on the glass. As we got back in, she did it again and she saw me cringe and with a smile apologized. We got out and she did it again. She apologized and said, "why is that door so heavy?" I kind of laughed because she is only 110lbs so I let it slide. The 4th time she did it, it really pissed me off because she spilled a drink as she got in. I told her: "My car is my property and my property deserves respect. Now you have three options,
1)let me get the door for you
2)learn how to close it
3)if you don't do either, you'll understand why I cringe everytime you slam the door because your head will be the buffer between the car and the door."
She laughed and said she'd go with #1. I guess she thought I was joking but we ended up going with option 1 from then on out.

Your car ... your rules. Simply "ask" them to use the door handle to close the door from the outside. I gave my wife and 2 kids a lesson on how to shut my doors when I got my M3. Only took a few seconds and it has saved me many hours of anger and resentment !!

To me, I just ask them nicely and they usually do what I ask. My wife knows how much I love the car so she wouldn't do anything that I wouldn't do. I love my wife

The worse is all the jewelry they wear, which ends up scratching the sh!t out of the car. I know they don't mean to, but it ridiculous.

Wow...If this is a true story, then let me be the first to say...that "three option" speech should never have happened. Mentioning anything that has to do with bashing a girls head usually isn't a good move, joking or not. It's a tell tell sign of someone who lacks skills to function with the female gender.

On the other hand, more power to you for speaking your mind. It may have been a bit too much though, especially for a first date bro, lol.

They're just cars...sounds like some people on here would rather spend a romantic night with their car, rather than a woman.

I like your response, it just makes common sense. Ask nicely and people understand and don't take offense.

I don't get it the problem with closing the door. I just ask whoever is getting in or out to take care when closing the door. Everyone seems to get it and closes it firmly but never slamming it. Never had a problem with this issue so far.

Tip # 37: Make sure you have a ton of random crap in your car so you don't have to take the M3 to lunch!
