I Love My Hatchbacks

I've probably posted this before, but I love my hatchback cars. The first one I ever had was the 1994 Ford Escort that my brother in law gave us. Need space? Drop the back seat down and you have a nice sized area to place things. The reason I bring this up? Today, at Sam's Club. I took the New Beetle to do some shopping. The cart is heaping with stuff, there is stuff stacked higher than the sides of the basket part. And crammed in the area between the basket and the wheels, is even more things. I pull it up behind the car, make sure it won't roll and lower the back seat of the car. Plenty of room. A lady walks by me and makes some comment, "You're going to have to cram all that into there!" I look at her and see she has one small item. She is walking towards a huge white Suburban. She opens the back and places the box in the back. "I have plenty of room with the seat down, " I said, as I gestured towards the back of the car. Plenty of room. "I love hatchbacks!" She left before she could see all the items fit, with room to spare. I don't need no stinking Suburban to carry all of my stuff.
