Glove Box or Glove Compartment?
I believe every car has one:
that little compartment on the front passenger’s side of the dashboard.
By name alone, I trust it’s designed to store gloves.
Winter gloves, especially lately here in Florida.
(No, not really.)
The other day, stuck at a railroad crossing,
I decided to clean out my glove compartment.
Here’s what I found:
The car owner’s manual and service record, a couple old google maps, three or four receipts, a pencil, a pen, a month-old-Sunday church bulletin, a cell phone owner’s manual (I don’t even have the phone anymore), and a plastic something or other that I can’t even identify.
Here’s what I did not find: Gloves!
Until very recently, I used the word “floppy” to describe
that device on which you store computer data.
After being somewhat chastised by my 13 year old son...
and following my 8 minute wait at the railroad crossing,
It appeared to me that I needed to update my lingo… computer and otherwise.
First update: call the compartment located in my car by its correct name:
a “Stuff Place.”
Got to keep up with the times!
How about you?
Got any “stuff places” that need renaming?
