It's one thing to talk to your pets. Yeah, they probably don't understand 99.9% of what you're saying . . . but at least they're living beings. This is a whole different level.
According to a survey commissioned by Jiffy Lube, three out of five Americans talk to their cars. Here's what they're saying . . . and they could give more than one answer.
50% have thanked their cars for a job well done, like getting them somewhere on time.
39% of people say they verbally encourage their cars. Like, "Come on, get up the hill without making me turn off the heat. You can do it. You got this. You're a beast."
32% have apologized to their cars, either for reckless driving, getting in an accident, putting them through bad conditions, and more.
30% beg or plead with their cars.
21% of people talk sweet to their cars while RUBBING the dashboard, steering wheel, or some other part.
And 17% of people try to bribe their cars by verbally promising them premium gas, a car wash, and other special gifts.
