"Not Me", Monday! - Backseat Driver

Well it's that day of the week again to share our "Not Me" Moments from last week.   So lets just get to it, shall we? 

Last weekend we had to drive the kids back to Idaho Falls to meet their dad so they could go back home to Cedar City, Utah.  It was cold, it was snowy and the roads were very icy for about 50 miles of our trip.  But it was "Not Me" who was sitting in the passenger seat all tensed up, seriously scared, and covering my eyes.  Those of you who know me, know that I would never do that.  I love driving on icy roads in the middle of winter, I never get afraid and seriously would never cover my eyes.  So that couldn't have been me. 

It was also "Not Me" who was told to cover her eyes rather than continue telling the driver to slow down, or don't get to close to the edge, or your going too fast.  Nope, that would definately not be me.  I would never think of being the "backseat driver" sitting in the front passenger side of the car telling the driver what to do, probably making him more nervous about driving in those conditions.  No, no, no.... that was "Not Me".  It just couldn't be.

Hate driving on the ice! Glad it all turned out okay. I would have been on the floorboards!

Glad I read it after the fact. I would have been a maniac.

That sounds just like me. I HATE icy roads, especially when it is not me driving.

I'm not a fan of winter driving either. My husband just makes me bring my knitting and tells me, "Knit now" when things get iffy!
