Detrimental to life and soul?

Hi Guys,

In my thesis I am talking about the idea that if we are detached from our vans then it is
not particularly life threatening...however it will/does have impacts on owners and their families emotionally
etc...if the van gets sold or breaks down or whatever.

I would like to find out about the different reactions (if any) to loss of the van/not being able to use it.

Can anyone share anything? I imagine no one has tried to top themselves over it ;)
pm also if you want.
xxxx

No replies...interesting.

So either this is really crap question.......or folks don't want to share ideas on this one.

Maybe emotional stuff isn't easy to share or maybe no one gets the question.

Can anyone help me out here;) ? :lol:

Not really much to add to this question apart from two very simple answers....

Loss of van...... I'd get another one.
Van breaks down ..... I'd fix it fast.

There's always a way if you really want something bad enough :wink:

First idea.... If you have the money. Buy one ready to go.
Second idea.... If your skint. Buy a heap, learn to weld, and do it all yourself on a shoestring over time. Anyone can do it if they really want to and are willing to try :D

Final option would be to buy a Transit van :shock: Think I'd rather shove a wasps nest up my arse sideways before I did that though :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
