do you actually have any gloves in your glove compartment ?

When I got my first car, I bought a pair of leather driving gloves - but found I just couldn't drive with gloves on,so, for a while, they were in the glove compartment. Now I have:- the car's manual; a single-use camera, phone charger, a pen, some fuses & a spare headlight bulb.

I'm sure I have just about everything in there except a pair of gloves. Oh wait, I might have a pair of little knit winter gloves. What we Americans know as a trunk, I believe you Brits call a 'boot', correct? I've always wondered why it was called that. Do you keep any booty in it?

I wonder if they keep boots in it? :) And for the original question, I'm sure I also have about everything but gloves in my glove compartment. Sunglasses tend to be the most important accessory in it.

Yes, we have 'boots' instead of trunks. In winter, I do keep boots in there. Do you keep elephants in your trunks... or maybe lifeguards - either could be interesting!!

I have my car's papers but not gloves in my glove box and I have not tried driving with my gloves on.

During the colder weather this year, I found that fingerless woollen gloves are fine for driving ;o)

No, I have never put any gloves in the glove compartment. I have the owners manual, insurance card, and a few odd things. I never really thought about putting gloves in the glove compartment, this is a very good discussion.

I assume the space was originally for gloves and that they would have been needed in the early days of motoring because they were always having to get out and turn the starter handle or check under the bonnet (hood?). I suppose a lot of them didnt have hard tops or proper windows and wouldn't have had heaters so the drivers hands would get cold.

No I would say I have everything but gloves in my glove box. Some things I know are in there are my registration, insurance card? cd's,maps, owners manual, sunglasses, miscellaneous crap, and like papers from having my car serviced. I have no idea what else is in there. I have no idea I should look I guess.

Who knows... there could be a stash of cash we've forgotten about in our glove compartments ...if we never clear them out we can keep that possibility!
