    Has anyone in here gotten rid of their SUVs yet? Anybody waiting to take delivery on their hybrids?

    Never had nor wanted an SUV. My husband and I have Saturns (him: '02 SL1; me: '04 Ion), and are now getting the last laugh on various acquaintances and relatives who own SUVs and F250s and whatever other gas guzzlers who teased us about our uncool economy cars.

    The last time I went in for preventive maintenance, the mechanic expressed interest in buying my car! (Ummm, no way!) Sorry -- since we can't afford hybrids right now, we're hanging onto our "boring" old economy cars!

    Darn, Ellen, I wished I lived closer to you so I could sell my Saturn to your mechanic. It gets great gas mileage. When it works! But a mechanic could deal with those problems, and I wouldn't feel bad about selling it to him.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I am conducting an unofficial poll (while ranting and whining). We have two bathrooms on the lower level of our house. One is the Master Bath and the other is a tiny bathroom that is the "Guest Bathroom". The two bathrooms are less than 20 feet apart. I have repeatedly suggested that if "we" don't use the guest bathroom, then I won't have to keep cleaning it up (sometimes rushing in there to straighten and clean up in advance of guests). Mr. Doxie continues to use that facility, mess up the guest towels, leave nasty splatters of soap all over the counter and mirror and worse! I'm sick of cleaning that room and I don't see why he can't walk down the hall to the Master Bath (unless it was a dire emergency). I'd like to clean it, keep the door closed and not have to re-clean it before we have guests. I'd like some opinions - is this some "man thing" - or am I being a witch for complaining about him not walking down the hall to use the other facilities?

    I cried large tears when I had to sell my Navigator back in November as I had gotten it for a steal from some friends and it was, by far, the sweetest ride I had ever known. The current gas price fiasco has certainly lessened that blow for me.

    ETA: doxie, I'd keep that door locked. If your hubby insists on using it, keep some of those bathroom wipes on hand for him to clean up after himself each time he uses it. I'm guessing he'd rather walk a few more steps down the hall than have to clean up.

    doxie- my first instinct is to agree with Bunny555, but then I got to thinking, is it really that big a deal? There might come a day when he isn't there to not walk those 20 steps and use the master, and you'll wish he was. Maybe he just waits until it is too late to go further.

    I know children like that, too. We're always happy when they finally get it together.

    Me either. And we too got teased about our uncool economy cars too. I wish I had my Ford escort back, but what I have now isn't that bad.

    Doxie, keep the door locked.

    I never use the "other" bathroom. I will walk the extra 20 feet to use MY own bathroom in the master bedroom. Always have. I just feel more comfortable in there. Maybe if you were to redecorate the guest bath in pink frills, he'd not feel comfortable in there any longer.

    But I'm like you, if I could clean and room and keep it clean because we didn't need to use it, I would.
