My wife is the same way.. While were living in Colorado she once went all the way to Denver from Vail Pass driving in the left lane at the speed limit. She is a Washington state native and explained she did it all the time in Seattle. I have the right to drive this way. So what if there are signs saying slow traffic keep right (especially along I-70 where there are very steep grades). A guy diving a Porche comes up behind us and flashes his brights. I told her she should move over as a courtesy. She instead flipped him off. As he passed on the right he gave me a dirty look I shrugged my shoulder, instantly he understood smiled and waved... She said what was that all about. I said "It's a guy thing"...

I suddenly flashed back to Sidney Poitier singing "Amen" from the movie Lillies of the Valley.

Amen, Brother. Couple weeks ago, my wife and I were driving in our neighborhood. We are approaching a stop sign, and a young man on a bicycle is attempting to cross the street in front of us. Now, one could argue that the man was breaking a law by riding his bicycle in the crosswalk, but that fact is not really germane to the story. Were it not for my screaming, my wife would have run the stop sign and collided forcefully with the bicycle, which she did not see. She apologized to the cyclist by yelling out the window, "You were in my blind spot." This "blind spot" somehow existed in front of the car, as opposed to its usual location behind the driver. Like you, I am shocked and amazed that my wife has lived this long.

The same thing happened to me, but in my case it was a 70+ year old grandma on roller skates (Venice beach).



Didn't know they had cuss words like that before electricity.

At least the zip lock bag will keep them fresh if they ever need to use them again.

If what you're saying is true, then I can't believe you don't have the sense (balls?), to explain to your wife that what she is doing is wrong and against the law (left lane is for passing only).



I mean, the rest of the comments show what a bad sense for driving women have. But your wife's driving characteristics are plain stupid and annoying and it's your responsibility as someone who definitely knows better, to correct her.



I've been continually teaching my wife how to drive for years now and she accept my remarks with understanding because she knows that I know what I'm talking about and that my remarks actually help her be a better driver.

You are posting to us from a deep dark hole in the closet under that display of whip and chains, aren't you.
