I may or may not have mentioned this before but I think the HHR I bought was originally destined for a climate with colder weather than we get here. I say that because it came with seat warmers and remote start. The seat warmers (which originally I doubted I would ever use and now LOVE) weren’t a novelty so much as my dad’s Silverado has them in the front seat…but the remote start- that was and still is quite the novelty and most people here do NOT have them and are not use to cars that do.
The other morning I was gathering my things and getting ready to leave for work and as I did I happened to notice my neighbor from the other end of the block walking his malamute past my car. Well I also happened to have my keys in my hand at the time and I just couldn’t help myself. I remote started the HHR. Well he jumped and flipped around and looked at my car…and all around…I couldn’t help but chuckle watching his reaction and then I opened the front door and walked to my car and got in- chuckling the whole time.
I would love to tell you that was the only time I did that…but it’s not. Two of my coworkers were walking next to my car in the parking lot- and they both knew it was my car…and I happened to be within remote start range so I started it up right when they were there.
Seriously I told you all that it doesn’t take much to amuse me sometimes.
