Minivans suck. “Soccer moms” must suck too.
Stephanie Torgerson, 32, of Pataskala, Ohio, said she simply can’t put her three boys in her husband’s Mazda 626. The 1-year-old needs a car seat, the 5-year-old needs a booster chair and she doesn’t feel comfortable wedging her 8-year-old between the two.
Sure, she could probably get better mileage in a minivan, but she doesn’t like the stigma.
“I don’t want to be labeled as a soccer mom,” she said.
And this lady has it easy. Embarrassed soccer moms in Europe have it even worse.
