    I’ve got a mate who ALWAYS does the same thing ‘because that’s what my parents used to do’.

    >> He always finishes everything on his plate (because it’s wasteful not to!)

    >> He buys a new car every 3 years and it’s ALWAYS a diesel.

    I asked him about his usual selection of car last month when he was in for his triennial upgrade.

    “Well diesels are cheaper to run aren’t they, and much more reliable. And anyway, it’s what I’ve always driven!”
