I’ve always wondered how various things were named, more specifically the interesting names that have been adapted for popular items, places and even incidents. The person that dubbed a car ‘Evil spirit’ really out did themselves although the people that propagated the name were much more instrumental.
With this at the fore, today we examine what has been dubbed the ‘owner’s corner’.
The ‘owner’s corner’ (that position in the car diagonally opposite the driver’s seat) is a prime piece of mobile real estate. This (we’ve been told) is where the person that owns the vehicle sits. This being the broadest definition, since we have people that don’t necessarily own the car, but that happen to be responsible for it positioned there too. Ultimately, the CEOs, senior executives et al of corporations to whom the driver reports is included in this league. This position thus signifying that whoever occupies it calls the shots.
