    Slamming of doors

    Can someone explain to me the need that some people have with slamming doors and boots?

    Every car I've owned there has all ways been at least two people who feel the need to slam the door.
    I politely mention to them that there is no need to slam the door and their response is all ways one of two
    Them:=- "I'm heavy handed"
    Me:=- "Your 7 stone of 5foot women"
    or
    Them:=- "O, did not slam it that hard".
    Me:=- "THE HOLE CAR BLOODY SHOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Does any one else suffer from friends/family who seems to lack the ability to simply close a door with out slamming it?

    Yeah i think its just some people are used to their own cars and some need more of a slam than others!

    It particularly annoys a mate of mine who has an E46 cab and the doors pull themselves in the last few mm. When you slam them the windows wobble!

    Yup my Mrs keep slamming my door too, she's got a 5dr 1series BMW, so the doors are naturally 75% lighter, her excuse is everytime that because they're heavier she thinks they need a lot more ooomph to close..

    It's always when I'm down in the garage pit and the car is up on stands that it worries me the most! I'm waiting for the day that she does it and the car gets shunted off the stand! :|

    I've started kicking people out of my car if they keep slamming the doors and boot.
    They soon stopped when they notice your not joking.

    I threatened to slam my cousin's head in the door if they carried on doing it.






    I then I told them I was joking but would, in all seriousness, not pick them up from school if they miss the bus again.
    Lesson learned.

    My ex always used to slam the doors and boot. I used to make a comment of "Do you want to make sure that's shut" or something but then the mardy ***** would have a go at me and I was apparently the unreasonable one. My new lady is very careful and considerate so happy days
