2008 Smart ForTwo: Bad For Picking Up Sick People

April 09, 2009

The Smart Potted Plant -- Awesome Photo by James Riswick

This picture makes the Smart look like a potted plant. Or Sideshow Bob, or for the kiddies, Corbin Bleu. Just thought I'd point that out.

Any way, I had the chance to drive our beloved ForTwo home last night. But along the way, I had to pick up a deathly ill Magrath from the doctors (we think it's ebola). Of course, when you're going to be sitting with Typhoid Gary for 25 minutes, being in the smallest enclosed space on wheels is just a fantastic idea. Had we been in the Flex, I would've made him sit in the caboose seats. In the Smart, he's basically on my lap.

So there you have it: the Smart ForTwo is not the ideal vehicle for picking up sick people. Oh, and get better buddy -- these cars don't care for themselves, you know.
