Why I Hate This Car

No, not because it's a Mini. Because it's a Mini with a child safety seat in the back.

Everytime I see this car I want to yell "you guys shouldn't be parents!!!" Only a self-absorbed yuppie hipster (yupster?) would hang on to a Mini to cart his toddler around town. Does your kid's Playskool record player only play Coldplay? You secretly wish Banana Republic had a kids collection, don't you. Don't you?

And then there's the luggage compartment on the roof. Oh, you need a little more space? Buy a bigger friggin' car!

It's obvious this Mini doesn't meet your needs so you're only hanging onto it for style points. Any time I see someone sacrifice functionality, quality of life, and family well-being for style points it makes me nuts.

And don't buy an SUV or a minivan. Whatever happened to the station wagon? The Vibe, The Matrix, Ford Focus 5, all cute wagons. Hell, buy a Volvo or a Subaru, isn't that what your people do?

Trying to fit your family life into this tiny little car is like trying to squeeze a 42" waist into 32" pegleg plaid pants from Hot Topic. It's time to move on. You're parents now. Be good ones.

It looks like it should have come in a McDonald's happy meal! But it's awesome in that terrible way- by the way Rob, who the hell buys Hot Topic pants?
