Mad Driving Skillz

How many things can you do while you drive? Talk on a cell phone? Apply makeup? Grab a lost toy/pacifier? Eat? Talk? How about just driving? Is that too much to ask?

This morning on my way to church I say a wonderful driver. He was driving an old beat up truck. He had the window all the way down (it was 27 degrees outside). He was smoking a cigarette AND brushing his teeth. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of brushing your teeth anyway? Then he spits out the open window. When did our cars become our bathrooms?

One day on his way to work Matt saw a woman multi-tasking. She was "driving", eating - A BOWL OF CEREAL WITH MILK, and applying make-up while stopped that the light. Yikes! And we wonder why our insurance prices are so high. I think it's because people like this cause accidents every day.

OK, I think I'm done complaining now. So, what's the craziest thing you or another driver you saw ever did while driving?

OK, I didn't actually see this, but this lady I used to work for actually bragged about being able to put her pantyhose on while driving. Yikes!

In high school I knew people who SWITCHED DRIVERS while on the highway!! Like as in you drive now and I will push the gas and you steer while we SWITCH PLACES!! I can't belive we all made it to adulthood.

Well I've never done this, but I've heard of women breastfeeding while driving! A friend of mine said her aunt nursed her cousin on her way to the babysitter's house every morning of his infancy!

I've heard of people breast feeding, I've been in the backseat of a car when someone switched drivers and the CRAZIEST thing I've ever seen is someone smoke weed and drink, while driving. It's all SOOOO CRAZY!
I do it occasionally, but I don't even like to talk on the phone when I drive!

Ed routinely reads the paper while he drives. Not with the kids in the car though.....not on my watch.

I shudder when I think of the crazy things we used to do while driving in college. I once road with a guy who played Hearts (card game) with us while driving. He even managed to shoot the moon three times in a row to win. Since becoming a responsible adult the worst I saw was some guy watching a DVD while driving.

I have seen people reading books. Mainly it is just people talking on cell phones and weaving all over the road or driving like 30 miles an hour in a 55. UGH.
