OK, I'm lying. When I did that learning test in grade 5 (or somewhere around there) I was a tactile learner. Although...it doesn't really matter. I'm not really talking about learning.
Anyways, what I am trying to say is that when people tell me stuff, I visualize it. That's right I always end up getting a mental image....so please spare me the details when it's nasty stuff. (I will forever have a mental image the time my friend told me the story of KFC gravy, a dog, and....oh...it's so bad I can't even continue for fear that I will scar someone else for life.)
So in order for me to get my imagery right, I need you folks to accurately describe things.
If you drive one of the following vehicles you may describe it as a "CAR":
a Crown Royal...wait a second that's a type of whiskey....a Crown Victoria
or any other non descript car
you have a
Mini (think cooper not van)
(These cars must be referred to by actual name.)
If you have any sort of van....I don't care. Just call it a "VAN" that will do...you can throw mini in front of it if you so please.
If you have any sort of truck...just call it a "TRUCK". I don't care if it's a 1/2 ton, a 3/4 ton, or has an awesome winch on it and a lift package. I don't care if you got some fancy skull hitch mabob....that's fine but just tell me it's a Truck. That will do.
Here is where it gets tricky...if you have an SUV....you can say just SUV, but you can also throw out what it is. For example .... go ahead, say Escalade, Yukon, Tahoe....I get it.
If you have a crossover....you MUST use the correct name for it. You should NEVER refer to it as a car.
It's not a car, for that matter it definitely isn't a truck either...so don't be calling it a truck.
Let's say for example, you have a BUICK RENDEZVOUS.... (do you feel like I'm yelling at you? I'm not...I should just quit using CAPS...sorry.)
Never (I really mean NEVER...but I don't want to yell) refer to it as "My Buick"....Even if I know you, all of the sudden you'll turn into a denture wearing, depends pads purchasing person in my mind's eye.
Just call it a Rendezvous...or a cross over, but come on..... call it a Rendezvous... it's fun to say.
"Let's hop in the Rendezvous and we'll go rendezvous with the other rendezvous-ers at the rendezvous destination."
OK...that may have been a bit much.
What do you call your vehicle????
