go on, take a wild guess…

We’ve been out doing a bit of Flyering this week in North and South-West London which was fun, cold and character building…

As well as coming out with thicker skin, mild frost-bite, and loads of useful feedback on our app, the exercise also got us thinking about the different ways you can tell if a car belongs to a parent.

Here’s what we came up with.

Essentially, you know the vehicle is parent-owned when:

  1. There’s an assortment of random  – for want a better word –  “crap” on the dashboard; a spoon, a sock, crumpled bits of A4, a rubber spider…
  1. There are stacks of old coffee cups by the gear-stick
  1. It’s an old sports car with a tear-sodden “for sale” sign in the window
  1. There’s a “Keep Calm & Carry On” sticker on the bumper
  1. There are no tennis rackets or other “exotic” sports equipment in the back
  1. There are wet wipes. Everywhere.
  1. It’s a Nissan Qashqai

Oh, and the car seats in the back are a bit of a giveaway too…
