Glove Compartment

Does anybody even store their gloves in their glove compartment? I don’t even own a pair of gloves and that’s the last place I would think of storing them if I did.

Wait, I do own a pair of gloves. But I only pull them out when I go skiing. Incidentially, I store them in my back pack, which I never cary on my back.

“the glove compartment isn’t accurately named
and everybody knows it.
so i’m proposing a swift orderly change.

cause behind its door there’s nothing to keep my fingers warm
and all i find are souvenirs from better times”

Well it is for keeping your gloves in, but it’s for your driving gloves. If you’re one of those wanky old fellas in a cap who drives an mgb, or the modern version who drives an mx-5 with your driving gloves (they’re kinda like sailing gloves but less slippery), then it’s for you.

If we change the name of the glove compartment (or glovebox), we might as well do the same for the trunk, dashboard, floorboard and headlight. Actually, I keep a set of thick leather garden gloves in my car, however, they’re in the trunk. Much too bulky for the dainty glovebox. By the way, the gloves spare my hands from looking like some stigmata after carrying up fresh drycleaning. Cheers!

@Jordan: I was about to post exactly the same thing until I actually went to this page and read the comments. 😀
