relationship problems

oh man... these holden people are just bloody annoying!

i just can't make my girlfriend see that fords are better built cars than holdens! she will just not accept the facts and keeps saying how fords break down a lot, and her parents have NEVER EVEN OWNED A FORD!!! grrrrr, for f**ks sake!

that's not an allegiance based on facts - she's just brainwashed! why does everyone have to like holdens?

Yep!

Mine was keen on buying a new Saab, then I talked her out of it, then she wanted a Peugeot, talked her out of it, then a VW Beetle, talked her out of it! Damn she makes me sick, changes her mind faster than a ball bearing in a pinball machine. At least she won't get a holden, so that's a bonus.

BTW she bought an Audi TT last month. The only thing she can tell you about the car is that its colour is denim blue.

Hey,

Fight the good fight Ads. Eventually you'll get through to her.

My ex came from a mad VW family. After 3 years of "brain-dirtying" (or maybe just brainwashing of a different fashion), I managed :
both her mother and her little sister got Lasers,
her brother got an XF Panel Van,
and her old man was scouring the papers for an Escort after having driven my little beasty.

The ex got convinced that Fords were the go after driving the V8 for a week - I was working on her car and it was in bits all over the garage floor. Shes emotionally attached to hers and refuses to sell it. But she stills goes straight to the Ford section of the classifieds........

Fight the good Fight!

L8a,
Prud

My last gf was a old Holden fan, and her liking Holdens was not part of the reason for the split.

If taste in cars is a serious issue for you in relationships, then stick to being single and loving your car.
