Is Eating Inside Your Car a No-no?

As a kid, I remember being told not to eat inside our SUV, especially when it was still brand-new. I never really got the logic behind this right away, but for that meantime, I just followed. After a few months, I found out the reason behind this, and I’m here to talk to you about it.

I’m not assuming that you’re also a kid who doesn’t know why you shouldn’t eat in an automobile, but I am sure that you have heard this command before. So, is eating inside your car a no-no? Well, to be logical, anyone can easily conclude that eating in your car would cause crumbs to tumble, resulting in many pieces of food all over the carpet and upholstery. Now, do you want to have crumbs and food bits to be left in your car? Of course you don’t, right? There are plenty of reasons as to why.Eating is good, Driving is good, Both of them together, I don’t think you should.

First of all, having food bits left in your car (between the chairs, on the carpet, etc) will leave this food-smell in your car. Food is good, right? However, having that same food-smell in your car is very annoying, and is actually unpleasant. Especially with fast food, the smell of deep fried, greasy goodness will stay in your car for several days. Remember that I’m not talking mainly about the possibility of messing your car with the food bits that fall off of your meal, but even the very presence of having it eaten in your car will cause that smell, even if you don’t spill any at all.

But even if you do spill your food, that’s going to be twice the dilemma, with stains AND smell. Secondly, eating in your car causes crumbs that will inevitably invite ants and other insects into your car. I’m guessing that you don’t want that, right? You may think that since your car door is shut when you park it and that you think the inside of your car is out of reach from these tiny critters, then you better think again. You’ll be surprised how these will manage to get themselves in your car. And once they’re in there, it’s going to be hard to get them out. You may use a pesticide, but that would again mess up the scent of your car. Even from these two simple reasons, I can conclude to you that eating inside your car IS a no-no. Plus, eating WHILE driving is not just a no-no, it’s an OH NO. Don’t even think about doing it. It’s as dangerous as driving while under the influence of alcohol

Remember that a car is meant for transportation and not for dining. There’s a place for that, and it’s not related whatsoever to your automobile. Eating in your car may be convenient, and I’m not prohibiting you from doing so, but I was just here to tell you of the consequences that you will face if you choose to do so. Remember that there’s a time and a place for everything, so if your hunger tells you it’s time to eat, remember that your car is not the right place to do so. So, before you drive, I suggest that you have a full meal so that you don’t have to eat while riding anymore. So, with that in mind, happy driving.
