Exclamation Why Slam So Hard?!

Why do people insist on slamming the boot/door of a car? I mean when they cause a richter scale event throughout your chassis and subframe.

I just picked up my nephew from brother-in-law and SLAM went the boot [hatchback]. I swear, he grabbed it at its apex and followed through all the way until it was closed. I think he might have damaged my back-shocks! :loser:

To cap it off, after he buckled in the tot in back seat he did THE EXACT SAME with the rear door, despite me cringing/crying in front of him after he had slammed the boot!

JEEZ! I need a drink, and there's only flippin' wine in the house, and that's not drink.

It's a Safrane, not a Laguna.
