Driving in the new Passat felt like travelling around in a lounge, it was so roomy. It also weighed a ton and steered like a cow. I believe they have improved somewhat since then. It was also solid, safe, waterproof and never went wrong, which was all quite different from the Midget! Great for carting kids about, in fact.
I once had to do the food shopping (before kids) when Jim had mumps. He says I came back with cleaning products and cat food. I have to say I don't remember this, and therefore deny it hotly.
Even now I only shop for food if he is incapacitated. It takes hours because they have always reorganised the aisles in the supermarket since the last time I shopped, so I can't find stuff. I think it is a secret supermarket plot to get people to walk miles in search of their food so that they will be hungry and buy more.
Then he took over. Result.
