Down the Yellow Brick Road….

Well, the topic on my mind today is “driving”. For the 12 years we have been together I have allowed my LO to drive us, because otherwise if I’m driving she is telling me every 90 seconds what to do next! Argh… I couldn’t stand it! so it was easier to just let her drive.  So, that was our “normal”; now it’s very scary driving with her. Twice she has gone out the “wrong” way; I can’t talk to her while she is driving because she has to “concentrate”; and she has developed  a mild case of road rage. Mild in that she hasn’t run anybody off the road, yet….( she doesn’t own a gun either!)

So the solution is: I say I want to drive my “relatively” new car and I practice extreme control of my mouth. Remember , every 90 seconds she is telling me how to drive; what lane to drive in; how fast or slow I should be going; where to turn and who to honk the horn at!

At least if I engage her in conversation she’s less likely to give commands. Discipline; prayer; mantra- I know I can do it!  It also helps to let out the screams of frustration while I’m parking the car in the garage.

  1. OMG!
    That is very scary. Not sure what to say, other than don’t let her drive and I know that is easier said than done. I’ll get back to you on that one !

  2. When it’s reached the point where she’s dangerous to herself and others, the DMV has an excellent process for testing her, then revoking her license, if necessary. You get the ball rolling ANONYMOUSLY and they do the rest. In the meantime, keep that great sense of humor!
