smile when driving

hi,
i just want to ask why whenever i am driving and make eye contact with people they have a look like on their face like they are the baddest mofo ever and they want to kick some ass? this goes for boys and girls. why can't we just smile at each other when we drive? it seems it would make the world a better place.

A lot of times when people are driving they are racing against the clock to get somewhere and probably running late or in traffic. Most people are stressed out and oblivious to their facial expressions.

I smile often while driving. Especially when I am listening to a U2 CD. Actually, perhaps the furious beating on the steering wheel (my imitation of Larry) scares the people away.

People laugh at me when I'm driving because I sing and "seat dance".

Hahah edgerulz, I'm one of those people.

Sorry but why is it that people have to STARE at me every time I'm driving. Especially at stoplights. I just look straight ahead because if I look over its usually some greasy scum bucket with his tongue hanging out of his face making gestures at me.

Even girl mean mug me!

Yes, half of those kind of people are in a hurry to get to Taco Bell for the 49 cent taco special (they don't even have time to buckle up their seatbelts), and the other half are driving navy blue sexydimonjeepgrandcherokees and think they are too righteous to smile at you.

Do that too Bonochick! Even people in the car with me get embarrassed and pretend like they don't know me! LOL

I could give a bad ass mofo look, but it would be SO hypocryical. I drive a beat up old corsica with dents and scratches all over it...It would justbe humerous if I laughed at other people.

i think it would be kinda hard to smile, when your trying to concentrate on something big, like keeping your eyes on the road.
maybe if you were a demented serial killer.

At night, you know how when you are at an intersection or somebody is waiting to pull out, and that means that when you drive by them that their headlights flash into your car, and they can see inside? My friend and I used to look at them and make demented faces. Heh...

Damn kids...

Ppl are crazy on the roads, like today, the guy in the lil old 1923 model laser that simply couldnt overtake me, flipping the bird. Its unecessary to be so aggressive.

I stare straight ahead. I feel real self-concious when driving, because once on the way to a concert a friend and I were bothered by this creep in the van next to us...he was pressing his nipple up against the window and making kissy faces, it was too gross.

And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time

I make eye contact occasionally with the driver of the car standing in front of me (if i'm stopping at a red light)
and, using the mirror for looking back, (what's that called in English? the mirror in the middle of the car used for checking what's behind you) i make occasional eye contact with the person who's driving the car behind me.

We just glance at each other - by far nothing as creepy as some of you have described.

Though once, as i was having a final driving test to get my driver's license, i pulled over at a red light and the driver of the car standing behind me (when you do a final test, there are two other people in the back of the car that evaluate you, along with the instructor who gave you driving lessons at the co-driver seat. so, as there were 3 people in the car beside me, he knew it was my final test) smiled and gave me the thumbs up. I smiled back at him.

"For us, each night on stage has to be like the last night on earth. That's the way our band operates-we can't play the songs unless we're fully into them." - Bono

"The music itself will tell you where to go." - Edge (about recording)

"It's an elevation thing." - Adam (when asked why there's pictures from airport on ATYCLB cover)

Rear-view mirror.

Why do they call it a rear-view mirror if you cant see the ass of the person driving behind you?
