Was an adventure in itself!
I don't normally drive Roy around. It is way too stressful on both of us. There have been so many times that I have either whipped the car on the shoulder and made him get out and drive or just turned around and drove home and locked him out of the house....I think once I threw him out of the car.
I mean really!!!
It is like takin' a drivin' test all over again!!!
"Use your turn signal."
"Keep both hands on the wheel."
"Don't follow too close."
I can only take so much!!!
But Thursday, with him barely able to walk there was no way he could drive with the bad leg being the right leg. He was at my mercy! So when the drivin' test began I just blocked him out and every little bit I would shoosh him.
It was like that scene from Austin Powers where Dr. Evil was shooshin' his son....for 12 miles!!!
And then he got nasty!!
"I can't wait for you have something wrong and have to have surgery and be in real pain and I GET TO DRIVE YOU!!!"
He wasn't squealin' like a girl but he was sure whinin' like one!!!
After the visit to the doctor's office, we had some errands to run around town.....he was not pleased!
"Did you look before you changed lanes?"
"You have no respect for that tag!"
And then he threatened me!!!
"That's it!!! I am buying some dumpy little car that has a 4 banger in it to slow you down!"
Now that was below the belt!!
Them's fightin' words!!
"Roy Hightower!! Wash your mouth out with soap!! Are you trying to get me killed? Why on God's little green Earth would you buy me a car that I can not drive in traffic with all these aggressive drivers? I am only being defensive! I can't believe you would say something like that to me!"
This am I when I left for work, I left him a list of things to do before we left for our weekend trip. And I told him if he got the list done he could drive the car. He had the list done by 11:00am....He wasn't takin' no chances!!!
Have a great weekend!!!
