How sad are we?

I hold my hands up, I love my car :D

Over 2000 miles now and I don't think I could live without it!!

It is becoming so bad now I can't dare to be parted from it.

This week I was flying from Heathrow and I always leave my cars with a valet parking service, however this time I was having second thoughts.

Should I let someone else drive my car?
What if they stall it will it flood?
They will be careful not to ding the doors?
I hope they don't shuffle it round their compound and flood it.
They had better not rev it too higher before it's warmed up.

What was I thinking!!!!

Anyway time came and I let them take it, I gave the guy a lecture about rotories etc, it's was like telling the baby sitter where the nappies were.

Late for my flight I handed over the keys and walked towards the terminal.

However it did not matter how late I was I would not go in until I had seen my baby drive away safely.

This was worse than saying goodbye to a loved one at the airport.

Any other sad gits out there with similar experiences. :D

I don't think I'd *ever* use valet parking. I've known two colleagues who've had their cars damaged using valet parking. One guy had a S2 Elise written off! :O
