So my son & me went for a drive to a local forest where we met up with my girlfriend & her daughter. We went for a walk which dragged as I just wanted to get back to the car park while it was dusk so I could look at my car, mess around with the LED’s etc.
After explaining how the front light dance can be seen best when parked next to a white wall, and extolling the elasticated storage area which kept a hot flask of tea upright, I heard my girlfriend’s (polite & lovely) 10 y.o. daughter say quietly “when is Dave going to stop bragging about his car?”
Let this be a warning- not everyone will interpret your enthusiasm for your car the way you intend it. It is very easy to become a real dick.
On the way home my son told me to save all my car excitement for our private chats. Wise head on young shoulders.

If it's any consolation, I had the same even with a couple of young software engineers in my previous car. I was telling them (expecting them to be interested, being embedded software engineers) to be interested in the lane assist, automatic adaptive cruise control and more, and yet... they just told me to stop showing off the car!

sigh The youth of today, they're not impressed by anything any more :rolleyes::cry:

Youth of Today
Amy Macdonald
Maybe if you were some spearheaded guy
I would listen to what you have to say
But you're just some incapable figure
Thinking you're bigger than me, but you're not
Yet you don't know a thing about the youth of today
Stating your opinion making it ring in my head all day

And you say,
"My children weren't the same"
"My children's children they're the ones to blame"
And you say,
"In my day we were better behaved"

But it's not your day no more
And we are the youth of today
Change our hair in every way
And we are the youth of today
We'll say what we wanna say
And we are the youth of today
Don't care what you have to say at all

And maybe if you had a true point of view
I would listen to you
But it's just your one sided feelings
They keep getting in my way
And you don't know a single thing about the youth of today
Stating your opinion making it ring in my head all day
