I was a local wine bar with my waifu and mentioned that I work at Soft99. The proprietor started talking about his hobby, mentioned his weekly wash routine usually takes around 2-3 hours.

Then the women around us started saying how they just don't get it...
I just pointed out how much time and money women spend on beautification and they were all

I usually just say something like “your car is the second most expensive thing you’ll ever buy, you should look after it” lots of people just see them as a tool though.

I just say, have a look at your car in bright sunlight or under lights of petrol station at night. All those scratches and swirls are what I don't have.

I play golf too so I have twice the explaining to do😂

Don't you just love all the daily adages, "you missed a bit" or "you'll clean all the paint off" " you're not cleaning it again are you?"

Usually from some anorak off to do a bit of train spotting or sweeping the yard on SWMBO's orders.

Sometimes I bite down so hard I swear my tongue bleeds.

Worried about what folk say at work? No no no, you need to do what I used to do. Take the opposite path and be the one saying the stuff at work.

Being eccentric and joking about was par for the course at my last place. The more the merrier.

Make up your own words/dialect.

Do weird stuff. Even if it's only walking around the office with no shoes on.

Be that guy.

^^ This. A car costs a lot of money and to me it's something that should be cherished and cared for. Like I do with my house too. I know it's each to their own but I really don't get how someone can spend so much money on a car and treat it so poorly.
