Help me convince the wife on a 2nd one

Post by graham1 » 14 Mar 2018 17:31

Come on guys. I need help thinking of reasons to convince my wife that we need another patrol. :pray:

She thinks it’s the most ridiculous idea she’s ever heard of. And my reasons of ‘because it’s the best car ever made’ just don’t fly.

The 4.8 needs a buddy. I reckon another 4.8, maybe a manual?
We have a small little Hyundai i10 that I use for the commute, it’s not the best, but you can’t argue with 5.5l/100km!

So come on, help me with some convincing arguments here! :biggrin:

Don't you really need a working vehicle with which you can pick up heavy equipment, or maybe haul some large items around (like perhaps a new dressing table for your wife)?
Perhaps one of the cupboards in your kitchen is in need of repairs.. and you have to buy wood to repair that...and wood is big?

In that case, how on earth can you do it without a pick-up? And we all know that the only pick-up you should ever buy..... is a PATROL! :blonde:

Cheers!
May the road be long.. and dirty.

Maklik:

1) Speel kar;
2) Toer kar;
3) Kerk & werk kar

Al drie Patrols.

Ek het so drie gehad, maar spasie en instandhouding ens ens. te veel.
Maar twee is makliker om te manage en te regverdig.

1) Speel & Toer kar; en,
2) Kerk & Werk kar

Jy kan nie teen 5.5 l / km argumenteer nie. Tenminste nie 'n Patrol nie. So hang af hoeveel myle jy op 'n dag ry.
Maar die Patrol is omtrent die laaste ding om gesteel of ge-hijack te word.
En veiliger in verkeer met smash&grab (te hoog) en bumper bashes ens.
Skilpad & Shortie

Haha, funny you mention that. The patrol is literally standing in the driveway as we speak with a massive coffee table inside it that needs to go to JHB on the weekend!

Thanks for the tips guys, I will start writing and practicing my motivation presentation to the board now then. :rolling:
