Default Do you ever let your woman drive?

Well do you? I did today and it was a reminder why I don't. I realize now why we need brakes on her car pretty regularly. Its amazing she doesn't get into a wreck just pulling out of the driveway.

I let her drop me off today since I am getting off early and we have a place to be quickly. She normally doesn't drive us, but she was already in the drivers seat when I came out to the garage and I just let it go.

Nope...it never ends well...argument or I end up jumping back in the drivers seat. I agree my wife goes through a set of brakes every year!

Sure. My old lady is a pretty good driver. She can even tackle the trails here in CO like a champ.

My wife is about the only person I would ever let drive one of my cars. She grew up around cars and learned to drive on a 92 toyota pick up stick shift. Her current daily driver just hit 100k miles and I decided to do the brake pads and they were still like new.

All that being said she tail gates the shit out of people because she's always running late to go somewhere. She was driving from plano to arlington in one of my riced out eclipses with a pearl paint job and was getting 32mpg out of it, I had to do oil changes every month because it was a 60 mile trip each way and about 600 miles a week. We got it with 60k and after a year when she hit 100k the pads and rotors were toast

Not by choice. It almost always ends up in w fight. What's funny is she feels like I'm a terrible driver despite the fact that I drive for a living. I guess we have to agree to disagree.

She drives her car exclusively. I hate driving it. Other the flip side, she hates driving my 4x4 so it balances out.

Not with me in the car. I do not even let my friends drive with me in their own cars; most of them just toss me their keys without me even having to say a word about it.

Most people I talk to have nothing but good things to say about you, but you sure come across as a condescending prick. Do you have an inferiority complex you've attempted to overcome through overachievement? Or were you fondled as a child?

You and slow99 should date. You both have passive aggressiveness down pat.

My wife is an excellent driver, and takes better care of her car than I do. She parks in the back of parking lots, to keep away from door dingers, and she is more smooth on a stick shift than I am, and shes only been driving stick for about 5 years. She has natural skill behind the wheel. Only complaint I have is she leaves half empty water bottles in the car like rat droppings in a barn.
Sadly I suffer terribly from car sickness as a passenger. front seat, back seat, it doesn't matter. More than 5 minutes in a car and I've got my eyes closed and my face in an air vent with the sweats. So I always drive. That means when we go out I'm always the DD. F-ing ALWAYS!

I will say this though, of all the people I've ridden with I've gone the longest without getting sick with her.

Lea drives us about half the time when we're together and I don't mind. Sometimes it's nice to just be the passenger.

All the time. Tired of dealing with cock faces and traffic. If I have to drive and am by myself I'll take the bike. I've found it therapeutic to observe rather than partake.

Only when I am tired, but the adrenaline rush that follows usually wakes me up with a quickness. She is asian and keeps the stereotype alive.

My wife drives about half the time. She's a great driver though. Not sure I could marry a girl who wasn't.

My ex wife should have been a professional driver, serious skills. I let her drive whenever she wanted. Current wife scares the fuck out of me. "Honey...why does my steering wheel shake when I hit the brakes???" Because your Tahoe wasn't meant to be driven like a FUCKING F1 car. How she hasn't boiled the fluid yet, I have no clue.

This probably even happens with people you've never met before too!

Her car, yes. My car, hell no. She has never sat in the driver's seat.

She's the worst kind of bad driver, convinced she is not one of them.

Yeah, she has no interest in driving either of my Mustangs. She can drive a manual just fine and drove a mustang for years, but no power steering in the '66 and way more power than she's comfortable with in the '05... those are just mine.
