She's Only Just Begun
|She's such a courteous driver|
Being in the passenger seat gives you a different perspective, mainly about the crazy drivers out there. When I'm driving I won't hesitate to cuss someone out who cuts me off or put on my brakes when I'm being tailgated. But when your kid is driving and someone pulls that crap, it makes me mad. Sure, they don't know she's a student driver but still, common courtesy and rules of the road should dictate how you act towards other drivers. Even her instructors encounter rudeness when students are in a market Student Driver's car.
We're trying to teach her the right way to drive and handle herself on the road. But anymore it seems like you have to be on the defensive all the time and pay more attention to what everyone else is doing. The other day hubby was with her and she was at a four-way stop. When she didn't pull out fast enough for the guy behind her, he honked. Since she hasn't learned the fine art of flipping people off, her Daddy did it for her. Isn't that what Daddy's are for?
She's barely gotten out off the starting blocks, and I sure don't want her to be scared or intimidated when behind the wheel. Rude drivers have always been around and always will be, so I guess she's just going to have to learn to not get so flustered, grow a tougher skin, and learn how to flip people off.
