Why is it almost every teen boy's "dream" to work on cars as a career?

I mean seriously! Everytime somebody asks a teen boy what he wants to do, he says "Work on cars". And they say it like they're half asleep. What, can they talk without sounding like their stoned?

Either that, or video game tester.

I'm not being sexist, but it's true almost all the time.

What makes cars so fascinating to them? They spit grease and it's always a hot day when you work on them.

None of my guy friends want to have anything to do with cars (though video games is another matter ). A lot of them actually want to go into teaching which I find interesting; infact more of my guy friends want to be teachers than any of the girls I know.

Out of every one I knew only one of my mates was a qualified mechanic and he'd given that up.

Didn't always used to be train driver in the old days? I wanted to be an airline pilot until I realised I was quite scared of crashing!

Same with me, also I have never heard anyone wanting to be a video game tester either.

I think this is a sexist thing. As many girls as boys I know love cars. And, frankly, we tend to be keener on driving fast whereas most blokes I know are more keen on their speakers. Most blokes seem to want city jobs now, frankly.

*snorts* No it ain't. Both boys and girls love the fanciest "pimped out rides". But it's always the boys who wanna be an auto-mechanic.
