Do people who talk to...

their cars and give them names need professional help? A car is a big piece of metal/steel needed to get from A to B and if I ever started talking to one, I would have myself admitted.

Hey, in addition to what Jakes says, talking to your computer when it ISN"T working properly ? The advantage, as Delene points out, to talking to inanimate objects is that the seldom answer back and can be perfect listeners. Of couse once they start arguing with you, then you do need to see a good shrink.
And of course I talk to myself --- do you know how hard it is otherwise to find an intelligent conversation round here ?

No wonder u don't talk to your'e car if I was driving a Renault I would'nt want to talk to it as well. Just because I talk to my cars pets plants whatever does that mean I need help. I don't think so......You are just being nasty that is probably why you dont use your'e real nic.

If I want to talk to give my car a name,thats my problem,Don't get insulting.I don't discreminate against you for driving a renault.There are lots of other things you do that people might think you need help,Including discriminating against people who give their cars names.

Don't be so daft Valkyrie, of course I am going to take care of it. I drove my previous car for 10 years and sold it in perfectly good condition. Just because I don't talk to them or give them names, doesn't mean I don't take care of them. I water my plants every week but don't chat to them either.

Talking to yourself is fine, but get worried when you start answering yourself back!

Talking to pets is a different thing, pets are living creatures who respond to your voice. I talk to my dogs all the time. I've also found myself saying to the car " go car, gooooo!"

Hmmmmmmm...........and your car is most probably in a very bad state cause you treat it like metal/steel to get you to A to B. Oil leaking, so dirty you cant' even see clearly, tyres in a bad state.....your car most probably wishes he had another owner.

Well, there are people who talk to their pets and various electrical appliances! EVEN PLANTS! My parents once threatened our apple tree that if it did not bare more than 2 apples, we would chop it down...the next season, there were 5 NICE apples! I know, it must be a coincidence...but it's just funny, that's all! I say, each to their own! When I was driving my mother's car, I found myself saying: "Please start...please start!"
