    Too much cologne or perfume is a recipe for a real stink job indeed. Maybe they're trying to woo someone in the office?

    Kahzach girls do have a reputation but I don't like stereotyping. It may just be the way they like to wear perfume. I noticed both are a bit heavy handed with the stuff.

    I'm very sensitive with that stuff these days as well. My eyes basically water all day long thanks to the two guys who sit next to me. That's right, guys.

    I don't know MIA, I've never used make up, and I never plan to. I may be a bit old fashioned, but I think make up, just make up, the one you'd put when you go to work, school on night out etc, should be just for women. I don't like it when they use it, not to mention when I see a guy with a powder or whatever that is, I istantly get pissed off. That's just me. I prefer girls with all natural look, no make up at all. I can stand perfumes to a certain limits, when you can sense it just enough, anything above that is just being a total hillbilly.
    I like the idea of no perfume and makeup as old fashioned.

    I can appreciate your not liking either, but no makeup and perfume would be a new idea, not old.

    Both have been around for thousands of years. Men and women have adorned themselves with both to attract the opposite sex for probably longer than we have records for.

    Then you have tattoos, which are the oldest adornments that we know of along with body modification. I'm not a fan personally but to each their own.

    I've heard a similar story before.

    Sounds nice.. And I'm only like a 30 minute drive away from the Atlantic, but I never go for some reason.
    I'm about 50 minutes away and I always think I need to go more often than I currently do.

    more and more people are noticing my band 2. just today an older lady( shes older than me I think in her late 30s) asked me what watch is that on my wrist? is that a Fitbit? I told her " its the same thing in the sense that it tracks your workout activity and does exactly what a fit bit does but doesn't come in different colors and is made my Microsoft." she seemed interested that there are different activity trackers besides fitbit

    I think it's robotised gearbox. You have pedals behind the wheel to change gear right? As far as I remeber it was quite slow gearbox and didn't like fast driving.
    Yep I have manual on both the bear box and behind the wheel. You can use the paddles behind the wheel even in auto mode.

    It's not the fastest at gear changing but I didn't buy it to race. It's about fuel efficiency. Though it does have some good pick up.

    That is one strange car. An automatic trying to be a manual 😛
    My Dodge had what they called "AutoStick", where you could drop it down into a manual mode and shift through the gears. Yours sounds a little different though.
    The idea behind this system is that the car acts like a manual so you get the same fuel efficiency as a manual.

    I'm not sure what the newer diesels are like in the US but here they shut down when you stop (at a light or whatever) then start up again automatically. This is to help with fuel efficiency. My car doesn't do that, this system is to get away from that.

    I'm not a fan of the start/stop thing, it's a bit rough feeling. Even in a BMW.

    My first taste of auto start stop was in 2009 in a Volvo V50 diesel in Denmark.

    I think you'd be great personally. :)

    I have start/stop in a Clio. It should help save a bit fuel but it does drain battery when car is turned off but everything works.
    Fun thing is that I have never driven automatic. I have driven electric cars but that isn't automatic really.

    Well an electric car is basically automatic. There's no clutch and though it's not like a 'normal' car it's still close enough to an auto that it makes little difference.

    North America is mostly automatic. Europe/Australia is mostly manual.

    Though I get why people like manual I really can't be bothered with the traffic I have to drive. Once you're on a highway it makes little difference.

    I currently have an automatic, but I learned how to drive on a manual.

    The only reason I chose an automatic for my current car is because my previous car got wrecked and totaled (not my fault), and I needed to get a car quickly. There were no manual cars available at the dealership where I got the new car.

    Here in the Philippines, the new cars are mostly automatic, though we're apparently still required to be able to drive a manual car in order to obtain a Driver's License.

    I'm quite impressed with some old jeeps that I ride to get home. The gear stick and the clutch pedal seem to be hanging by a thread and yet never seem to fail - though I guess it would be better for those to break rather than the brakes. I find myself clutching to the bars every time we go down that 20 incline...

    So, thanks to all those who helped...my electronic decluttering is almost complete. The only thing left to do is maybe switch my Maxx out for something else.

    If it doesn't sell by the end of the week, I'll most likely keep through the rest of the summer.

    No, the one is recently married and I think his new wife likes the cologne. The other is an older guy who seems like cologne.

    The girls are only here for this week so they'll be gone soon but that doesn't really help me. lol

    Good luck with that double shift.

    I could use a beach with a hammock, a cold beer, a light breeze and the GF in a bikini and straw hat looking cute.

    Off to try to find the money to make that happen...

    Maybe the newlywed needs to wear the cologne at home instead of at work since the wife likes it...

    Most people seem to always lay that stuff on a bit too thick. I've been told i underspray whenever i use it...
