A 36 year-old local man with a wife and two children has chosen a beautiful photo of his car for his profile picture on Facebook. Paul McGuire from Tallaght in Dublin recently bought a 3 Litre BMW 1 Series Hatchback and told us it’s his pride and joy.
“That car defines me.” said Paul. “It’s who I am so it’s only right that’s what people see when they visit my page. Don’t get me wrong, I love the missus but she hardly compares to a Beamer. There’s just no contest.”
Paul admits he could have spent the money on other things but is adamant he made the right choice.
“We could’ve had a lot of family holidays out of that 30 grand but what would the kids prefer, going on holidays every year or getting dropped off at school in front of all their friends in a Beamer? I don’t know what their answer is obviously ‘coz I never asked them but I certainly know what mine is and I’m the bread winner in this family so case closed.”
Experts say the profile picture we choose on our social media accounts says a lot about who we are as individuals. It shows the world how we see ourselves and apparently lots of men see themselves as a car.
