    Only when my son or daughter are driving. They have their permits, so I have to be a “back-seat” driver.

    ooo its Vikings weekend! Do I wear purple and gold when I visits???

    I tend to only crabby when someone drives dangerously and if they continue to do so I tell them to stop and let me get out. The one time I totally freaked out was while driving with a friends boyfriend, he was giving me a lift somewhere and he had road rage, went towards his “cubby hole” (I dont know what you call it in US) and took out his gun.

    I shat myself not literally but pretty close – it wasn’t the best day ever and I never drove with him again.

    It totally depends on who’s driving. I have a friend who is known to the traffic courts as a “speed demon” and has had her license suspended 2 or 3 times so far. She has also been known to fall asleep multiple times while driving. Very high maintenance if you are sitting in the passenger seat. Plus, she’s one of those people who can’t stand to let sane people drive.

    I also have a sister who is given to excess while driving – excess speed, excess punctuation using the gas or brake pedal, excess weaving, etc. I really try to bite my tongue, but sometimes that self-preservation instinct is just too strong.

    For the most part, I don’t even pay attention to the “driving” aspect of the trip. I look at the scenery going by and just relax, if at all possible.

    Yes, I am. And it makes my hub nuts! LOL

    Ok, back STREET, right?

    Nope I just grab the “Oh Shit” handles above me. I figure that says it all!

    Back seat or back street?? I’m not much of a back street driver, if it’ll get to where I need to go faster then yea, but the main streets here are faster. I know some people who only go on back streets (to avoid cops)??? I don’t get that theory but… I am kinda a back seat driver, a little, I’m very good at grabbing those OH SHIT handles too!!!!

  7. Joy says:

    That is the first time I’ve made a mistake like that and still didn’t notice it until you said that Nikki!! LMAO!!!

    I won’t even fix it so everyone will know what a melon I am!!!

    Sorry, it should say back SEAT!!!! *going back into my hole now*

  8. nikki says:

    Ahhh we all already know what a melon you are? JK really the back street driver isn’t a bad question either!!! LMAO!!!

  9. SKL says:

    Yeah, I do have a friend who is a total back street driver. She claims to have all these “short cuts” but they always take longer. I could see enjoying the passing scenery if I wasn’t always late and if gas was about 10 cents a gallon. Actually, I used to have a back-street route that I’d take to my parents’ house when I was feeling relaxed. It’s been years since I’ve felt that relaxed. Tried the back street route on the last leg of a trip from DC to my folks’ house, thinking I’d save about 10 miles by not taking the freeway. And once on the way back from Detroit to avoid the toll road. Both times I ended up losing more than an hour. I think I’ll stick to the freeways from here on out.

  10. Sue says:

    Ah, it’s more like side seat driving!

  11. nikki says:

    SKL, I too have an ex friend that has all these back road short cuts, yea they are not short cuts. And why is she avoiding the cops anyway?? Come to find out, she thought people were following her…FBI, CIA…man was she weird!!!!

    My daughter and my youngest son are the worst backseat drivers ever. I mean, when she’s harping on me for my speed (too fast, Mommy), he’s complaining about the route I’m taking (that way THAT WAY!!!).

    The worst part: they indeed learned it from me, from my griping at Tim. Now, I drive, I get payback, and I never hear the end of it from anyone in the darn car!
