Things You Do In Your Car

It’s survey time again, Pingers. What thing(s) do you do in your car that you probably wouldn’t do anywhere else? And don’t talk dirty.

For me, it’s definitely singing along with songs. But I have this thing about singing in the car… I don’t really do it when other people are there, and I don’t care if other people see me. Heck, I think it’s entertaining.

Once, however, a teacher told us he once saw a man practicing playing his flute while driving. He had both hands on the flute and was, presumably, driving with his knees. I don’t know. A cell phone is bad, but playing a musical instrument? I think it’s time to consider taking the train.

Yeah, I'm with you. I pretty much only sing along with songs in the car. Sometimes I kinda need to to stay awake.

Yeah, I sing too. But mostly, I listen, with volume way up. With two kids in the house, and a wife who considers Michael Bolton a musical talent, I really don't get the opportunity to listen to what I want, when I want, at what volume I want. So I crank it up in the car. Iron Madien cranked has a way of making the commute more bearable. Of course, now that I'm working from home, I don't even have a chance to do that...

The worst I've done while driving is change CDs, and I do that pretty often.

Fresh- Maiden is the only group who deserve to have an album titled "Best of the Beast."

My roommate Hollee has started, during her 45 minute commute to work, reading books, plucking her eyebrows, writing letters, and other such my-eyes-are-so-not-on-the-road types of things.

Remind me never to drive anywhere near Hollee.

many times when I'm hungry - if it's monday or wednesday I'll grab a cheap McD's burger...and wolf it down while I'm driving...I make sure I eat the messy side of the burger first - so stuff don't spill on me - their hamburgers and cheesburgers are usually pretty neat...just watch out for the ketchup and pickle in the middle - one time it landed on my shirt...and while doing 50 down a busy six lane road in Ft. Myers FL - it can really cause you to lose control! - Of course I didn't panic...but - I think the worst thing that's ever happened to me that's distracted me while driving is a BEE flew in the car and landed on my LEG! - Now THAT can FREAK you out - maybe just a little (no laughing!!) - Lizard

this ping is great. i'm making a documentary about traffic for the discovery channel and am looking for people to film that use their commute times to do "other things." If anyone is interested please let me know....

If were on long trips, i'll make funny faces at my husband until he looks at me and then i look forward like nothing happened.

When my mother and I went on road trips when I was young, we had this thing we would do at red lights. You roll down the window, and stare menacingly at the car next to you. Usually they'll notice you, but try not to look. Then, you start growling. Make sure your lip is curling and teeth are visible. When they sneak another glance at you, start barking. Oddly enough, my mother was the one who invented this childhood game.

I turn the volume on my radio all the way up and proceed to rock out with my cock out!

Why can't they just pick their nose in the car like everybody else?

What is this then?
