Marriage 201, Lecture 392: Life and death, or, what is the purpose of a car

SH: No! You can't put it [the little flashlight] in the glove box.

Me: Why not?

SH: It won't fit.

Me: Well, I'll take out the owner's manual and put it behind the seat in that pocket thingy.

SH: NO! The owner's manual belongs in the glovebox. Every man knows that. And I don't want you to stretch out the pocket. What if I want to sell this car someday? The flashlight can go in the trunk.

Me: In the trunk? If I need it, it's because there is an emergency!

SH: You can still get to it from inside the car.

Me: With my broken leg? In the dark? You want me to die.
