A professor in my university drives a pickup truck. So was my former co-worker – a lady programmer.
I see lots of pickup trucks on the road, most of them are not loaded. Which makes me wonder: why would one buy, and drive, a truck if he or she is not going to utilize the storage space fully?
Maybe they think trucks are safer. (But they endanger other road users.)
Maybe they ‘need’ one to transport furniture from Ikea once or twice a year.
Maybe they need one to tow a boat.
Or maybe, as someone put it, they simply want to “express their aggression”.
Can someone please enlighten me?
