This one time I picked up my brother to go out to lunch (Mr. Anti Foreign Anything) and he went snooping in my glove box and when he went to shut it, he gave it the ol' American Swing....B.A.M.!!!
Of course I freaked and proceeded to inform that all he needed to do is gently push it closed. (I suppose that I am one of the fortunate ones who has a glove box that needs minimal effort to shut and without any rattles).
Needless to say I made him to open it and shut it gently. "See, that's all it takes!"
...He mocks me every time we go out to lunch now!!! Mostly, I make him drive, now...a boring '99 Black Ford Taurus
