I’m terrified of cars. And I mean TERRIFIED! I’ve been in six major ‘traffic incidents’ in the last ten years, and I’ve lost friends to car crashes. So I was putting off learning to drive for a while (I’m 27 now, lol). Just to put it in perspective, I’m nervous just getting in the car, no matter who’s driving! Admittedly, there are one or two people who I dread getting in the car with, but those opportunities are few and far between!
So, I’ve had about six lessons now, done roundabouts, which despite dreading beforehand I’ve got a little more confidence in doing.
So far, I haven’t done any reversing, and been ot a few times with my wife, who almost killed me the first time. She was smoking (she’s a bit of a nervous passenger), and decided to flick the cigarette out of the window when it was finished. Except that the window wasn’t open that much and it rebounded back into the car, off the dashboard and under her arse. This is all happening whilst I’m driving along the road!!!!!
I’ve just booked my theory test (august 8th if anyone’s interested), so I’m going to be swotting from now on. Lol.
Should be fun.
Does anyone have any funny driving stories?
