, sour grapes
Sounds unbelievable, but I've noticed in my workplace that there are a few people who have actually started treating me differently - and not in a good way - since I acquired my little roadster.
Well, my theory is that the MX5 is one of those cars that, secretly, most people would really like to drive (especially on a sunny day). But the way we Brits deal with things we secretly lust after is to mock, to disparage.
It made me a little self-conscious at first: I would leave the car-park and lower the roof somewhere down the road, out of sight of my colleagues.
Then I thought, why? Why should I apologise for having a mildly tasty little motor?
What a strange world we live in.
