My wife's SUV was empty of gas so she took my car out for some Christmas shopping. Actually I prefer her to take my car shopping. The truck space of an MX-5 is much, much smaller than the storage of her SUV which perhaps can cut shopping time down and purchases.
But the fun part is when she came home, she told me that I might want to delete all of the video. How successful are you when you are told not to look at something? Yeah, me either. Apparently she was in a bad mood. Yes, my sweet wife, who works with a charity helping abused kids everyday, at church every Sunday [last clip was from coming home from church] is a mad woman when behind the wheel. Perhaps this will explain why all of her friends from church are scared to ride in the car with her behind the wheel. The last clip is when I was driving and she wanted me to run a light that may or may not have been safe to make. I might drive really fast but I am safe around yellow/red lights.

That light was too close to call lol so I’m with you.

Also I bet she’s going to have high blood pressure In a few years if she doesn’t already.
We can’t fix stupid (other drivers) , we can only change how we deal with it . 🤷🏻‍♂️

Actually she remained calmer than usual and calmer than i expected after that van pulled in front of her.
I’d have laid on the horn or just went to the right lane and not cared.

She was too calm In that one Lolol

Soon after we were married, I had to set some ground rules when I'm in the drivers seat. She would reach over and honk the horn when someone would cut me off. The rule that I put in place was when I'm driving, she isn't allowed to touch anything in the drivers area. Granted, she was the one driving my car the last time it was hit and is a bit more on edge.
Maybe I need to put a dash cam in her SUV to see if this behavior is just in my car!

I love the Christmas music in the background haha.

Definitely a lot more calmer than me, I'm a maniac!

I think my blood pressure just went up watching it...

Thanks for sharing!

A sure sign that it isn't me that is driving. Mr Scrooge married Mrs Claus. I've been banned from all Christmas decorating due to me 'crushing the Christmas spirit' and wanted to leave the man cave Christmas free but she snuck in a little tree by the window when I wasn't looking. Downstairs looks like Santa threw up everywhere. At least she is down to one main tree with a few non decorated trees around the house. She use to set up 4 big trees inside. 90% of our attic is dedicated to Christmas decorations and we have a Christmas shed filled with even more crap/Christmas decorations. Her work has a total of 4 different Christmas parties!
Yes, she regularly gets me a lump of coal for Christmas. And I earned it!

That section of road is really frustrating for both of us. Rarely have I seen anyone driving the speed limit on it, usually 10-15 under [limit is 50 there[. In fact, rarely do I see anyone driving the speed limit on pretty much all of the roads around here with exception of my wife and I!
