Little Cars

We got our rental car while we're waiting for the truck to get repaired. Our insurance will cover a car up to $25/day, which mean if we don't want any out of pocket costs, we get a compact car. Well, let me tell you, after driving a huge Dodge Ram 1500 for over year, most cars feel compact!! We got a Dodge Neon, and man is that a little car!! Now, I'm very short ~ only 4'11" ~ and it's even small for me!! Because I'm cursed with very short legs, I have to have the seat up as far as it goes {in the truck I also have to use a pillow to boost me up to see over the steering wheel!!!} and in order to get out of this itty bitty Neon, I have to push the seat back because my knees hit under the steering column!! I've ever been in a car where I've had to do that. And it's so low. I love that the truck is up high & I can see over most other vehicles. Here's hoping it won't take too long to get the truck back!! Enough of my ramlings for this morning. Off to work now. Until next time....

Oh that's too funny! I can just imagine your little 4'11" frame driving that big 'ole Dodge pickup sitting on your pillow!! I'll bet going from that to the Neon is quite a shock! Hopefully your truck will come back to you soon!!

Hee... I have to drive that far up too!! And I'm with Lisa. The thought of you driving the truck on your pillow is SO cute!!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's quick for you!!

ooo i hate those tiny rental cars! I remember my mom getting a rental car after an accident and it was a ford festiva, I was about 15 and standing next to it the roof of the car was just above my WAIST!!! (i'm 5'10 now) I refused to go anywhere with her because the backseat was soooooo small my knees were under my chin.
why do they think anyone would want to drive those little cars? i think they should have something large as the $25/ a day cars, at least a sedan, not a compact for crying out loud. it's a bit like riding around in a sardine can
