Doug bought his 1989 Voyager van from our elderly neighbor.  All in all, it serves us well.  It is "Doug's world.  Doug is a slob messy person and I am immaculate.  So after a certain amount of time, we I decided that we would stay out of one another's vehicles.  Chelsea is the only other person in this family allowed in my car on a regular basis.  We use my '03 Honda Civic EX if we are going out somewhere and are dressed up.  We use Doug's van for camping, canoeing, hiking, trips to the northern end of the state, grocery.  Last weekend, Doug went into Taco Bell and I had to wait a long time, so I got bored inventive.  So, I set a trap for Doug.  What you cannot see is that at the end of the rope going out of the window, was his water bottle.  The rope also wrapped around the rear-view mirror.  It had a toggle hook on the end of that, so I hooked that to his key ring.
I could hear him laughing before he got to the van saying "what have you done, now?"
"I didn't do anything."
Nothin' at all.

That must have been a great way to pass the wait. I worried he might drop the order and hve to start all over. But the mess would be outside in the case,

That's funny! A few years ago my husband was driving a 86 Ford Escort GT. It had a hole in the floor boards and furry critters would get in. I didn't ride in that car for 6 years! He finally had to break down and buy a new one in 2002. It would had cost more to fix that car up than to buy a new one it was in such a bad shape! lol
