I'd call it an SUV, however, ask your wife what she calls it -

Didn't say I WAS sick. Mental health day. I'm going to go treat myself to breakfast.

That raw fish was tasty.

Well, she hasn't seen it yet, but my guess is she'll call it "too big" and refuse to drive it after trying a 3-point turn here in the yard and discovering there's no back-up camera, no parking sensors and a rear-view mirror only showing a distant sliver of daylight.

According to my own personal snap judgements and prejudices and nothing else, the following are facts... ..


The "Sport" part of "Sport Utility Vehicle" - Nope. The "perky bus" handling kills that.


"Van" - well, if all of the back seats are out and it's now an open cargo area, maybe yes. If you can put a 4x8' sheet back there, then definitely yes.



"Truck" - Body-on-frame? Then yes. Unibody? No.



I'd go with "UTVV" - "Utility Truck Van Vehicle"

Now, that you have published that you installed a drink holder, your insurance company will find out and your insurance rates will skyrocket -

It's a Utility Vehicle that you can scratch the heck out of with skis, snowshoes and chain saws.
Splash some two stroke gas around in the back so it doesn't smell so diesel-y.

I've had an OLFA Craft Knife - L for ages.
Click the picture. $3.71 and it's JDM YO!
Not a flick knife, but does what it says on the box.

Also inherited a Stanley exactly as pictured previously. Not broke yet.

You said that you called in SICK. You should have stuck with that. Now that your employer knows it's a mental health day, they will have to do a mental health evaluation on you which will most likely direct them to give you a medical early retirement, at a drastically reduced pension -

However, you will still be able to retire to a place in Montana -

Now THAT is a utility knife!
People were headed up the knife scale so quickly that I was afraid of where it would end.

I have been trying to get HR to do that for years now. They say I am crazy if I think I can get out that easy.

Now you went and did it - all the automobile manufactures will now have to come out with that line -
