I like to yell at other drivers though
I abuse other drivers from my navigator's seat.

i'm also a little nervous on the highway as i'm bad at changing lanes, again, inexperience.
Usually it's weather or the thought of highways or lunatics that alarm me.

I'm always more relaxed than if my dad is driving. Fuck, i've come close to writing my last will and testament in the car with him.

i am weird about bugs. i don't mind mice at all really, or lizards or other little critters. bugs kinda gross me out. my boyfriend had a huge beetle in his room the other day and killed it with a shoe and left it there (it had fallen on top of the ledge above the closet door). i was sooo grossed out, i could hear it crunch, and he asked how i survived living in africa....but that wasn't a 1st world country, so i just adjusted my expectations i guess. and was still a little grossed out.

If it is safe to do so, you're meant to stop, not floor it.

My Grandad's driving scares me shitless. He's the kind of guy who abuses other drivers for being fucking useless while turning right at a no-right-turn.

i've rarely driven in bad weather, maybe a little rain on the way to my piano lesson 5 minutes away or a little snow over winter break but again not going far.

my parents are both very good drivers, though my nervous mother still sometimes winces and pedals the break from the passenger seat with my other mother....a habit i've acquired when a few friends drive.

i drove when coming down from being drunk once, but i hadn't had that much to drink, it had been 1.5-2 hours, and i'd had lots of water and some food. i was slightly buzzed but it was in my neighborhood and i didn't have a problem.

Torrential rain, it's great fun.

My dad thinks i lose any common sense as soon as i get behind the wheel. A few weeks ago i was behind a car at a roundabout, and it went so i slowly rolled forward to take it's place, and he fucking freaked out.

my grandfather's 90. he drives despite starting to lose it physically and being a shitty shitty driver who's totalled 3-4 cars in my lifetime, because my grandmother has bad bad eyesight. he scares the living shit out of me, i swear last time i almost asked for the keys. it's white knuckle kind of driving. 8 years ago i went to visit them alone and on the way back from the airport he almost missed his exit, he was in the center lane (it was a left exit, one he'd driven 1000s of times) and veered a lane over towards it, of course hitting a car. then he said a lot of words i'd never heard him say, then was embarrassed he'd said them in front of me...it was all very awkward. my grandmother and i agreed not to tell my parents about that, which i didn't for like 6 years!

I'm the kind of driver who said he was great at it and then proceeded to get in an accident.
