When you are young and single, you buy yourself a hot car like a Camaro. Yes I know some people are mustang fans, and others are into Japanese crap, but for the story let’s stick with the Camaro. It’s great seats two, and not much in the back seat, you look cool with your hair slicked back, ray bans on. Drive around with the windows down and the radio blasting on ocean ave by the shore. The goal to impress chicks, and guess what? Some day you do, and you finally find the one.
Of course the first few years of marriage, still driving around in the Camaro it’s cool since it is just you. But eventually you have to 2.3 kids, and when they are really little, they fit in the back. You by strollers designed by origami experts so they fit in th trunk, but runs to Cosco are not that easy as you need to load up on diapers etc. As kids get older and they have friends it’s hard to squeeze the 4 kids and 2 adults in the car, yes kids can sit on each others lap, and while they are young, they seem to be ok with this. But as they get bigger it’s harder. The funny thing is that you don’t blame the car for the issue, but the situation. That the car was fine in your 20s its fine now.
Fast forward 20 years, the kids are gone, and now you have an antique Camaro that you take to car shows as its all original, and mint. You tell stories of how you and your wife met and how you squeezed 6 kids in the back once, and tell fond stories. Noting there is nothing wrong with the Camaro.
It’s not that every tool is right for the situation, but sometimes you do have to use a hammer, sometimes you have to use a screw driver, and sometimes you can drive a Camaro
