The "Ambassador" effect

Did you wonder when you closed the door of a car, why you slammed it so hard?

I call it the "Ambassador" effect. 40 odd years of the rule of the Ambassador and the Premier Padmini have taken their toll on our door closing instincts. The newer cars dont need to be slammed shut, a cute push is good enough.
But with the Ambassador, the old warhorse of the olden days, one needed brute strength to open and shut the door. When we think car door, the Ambassador mindset takes over and we use brute strength.

Like the typist who graduates to the touchpad of a computer, yet hammers his keystrokes into it...
