WHEN TECHNOLOGY WENT TOO FAR


The 'not grey' car

I know I usually sing my car's praises whenever I mention it. I like the sliding doors that mean the kids aren't constantly knocking them against walls or other cars. I appreciate the way the windscreen wipers come on when it starts to rain and the lights come on at dusk. The one thing I am not happy about this week is the interior motion sensor alarm. In this heat I want to leave all the windows open while I sit in my garden because I am in and out all day and have no desire to step into a furnace on wheels and wait for the air conditioning to combat the melting dashboard. Of course when I leave the windows open but lock the car, anything bigger than a midge flying in through the open window sets off the alarm over and over again. After various attempts at cooling it down I am now giving up - it is simply impossible to leave its windows open. :-(
