Right Own Up…

Red mum captured this picture last week of a crazy driver having her cereal whilst driving along the Quays in Dublin during morning rush hour traffic.

Mad Driving by Red Mum

Then yesterday this arrives by email:

Driving to the office this morning on the M25 (UK) motorway, I looked over to my right and there was a woman in a brand new BMW doing 90 miles per hour with her face up close to her rear view mirror putting on her eyeliner!

I looked away for a couple of seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane still working on that makeup!

It scared me (and this coming from a bloke….) so much that I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the bacon roll out of my other hand.

In all the confusion of trying to straighten up the car using my knees against the steering wheel, it knocked my mobile from my ear, which fell into the coffee between my legs, causing it to splash and burn BIG JIM AND THE TWINS, causing me to scream, which made me drop the cigarette out of my mouth, ruined my shirt and


Flaming Women Drivers!!!!!!!

So come on own up, which of my Toyboys was it ❓

    Not me, as you know I’m currently considering my employment options. Also, if it were me I would have been adjusting my headphones, watching the mini-TV on the windscreen and plucking my eyebrows.

    I have ceased to be amazed by what drivers will do while going down the highway at 70MPH. I have seen people reading newspapers, etc.

    Ha! It definately wasn’t me. Yesterday I was driving through a shopping center parking lot at about 5 MPH when my celly rang. I pulled over before I answered it.

    Integrated phone kit in car so i’m sorted

    gave up the fags years ago …. went straight …. for the nicorette patches :mrgreen:

    No liquids allowed in my car …. spoil the finish! πŸ˜‰

    Shaving … done the night before (late) …. by the time a stubble appears I’m too busy during the day to notice or even care for that matter!

    Food …. another no no in the car …. bad for the leather …. makes the seats very sticky! πŸ™„

    After all that ….. I think I’ll take the bus!

    Paddy ~ with all those no nos, do you allow women in the car or would they spoil the finish πŸ™„

    I read about a woman who said.” I’ve sure gotten old. I’ve had two by pass surgeries,a hip replacement and new knees. I’ve fought cancer and diabetes.

    I’m half blind, can’t hear anything quieter than a jet engine,take forty different medications that make me dizzy,winded,and subject to blackouts.

    Have bouts of dementia.have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can’t remember if I’m 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends.

    But, thank God, I still have my driving license.

    One of my neighbours bought himself a new car for his 92nd birthday.
    I have noticed him panic several times in the past few months, I only hope he decides to stop driving before he causes an accident.

    Not so long ago I saw a man brushing his teeth while driving who knows where around noon–on an interstate highway no less! We decided he was on his way to noontime quickie and wanted his mouth to taste fresh! Animals are smart enough not to drive or brush their teeth.

    He! He! Not me neither! I don’t drive…public transport, Shanks’s pony or cabs for me…have been known to cycle but it scares me stiff…I’ve been safer in a canoe on a river in flood from snow melt water! hauling in nets by the way. Thay wouldn’t let me shoot the rapids though!

    Women in my car …. as rare an occurance as you could possibly imagine.

    When I clean the inside of my car only the driver’s area needs to be dusted!

    All other areas are untouched by human hands!

    The jacket I have draped on the back seat is quite comfortable in its regular position.

    Do you remember the skit that Rowan used to do as Mr. Bean?

    He would get up out of bed, jump in his car, turn on the windscreen wipers and press the button for the washers to start. Then he would put his arm out the window and hold his toothbrush in the water that was squirting on the windscreen and proceed to brush his teeth.

    He was really very funny.

    TC ~ are you the guy who standing on the pedals weaves from side to side on narrow roads? If so I meet you all the time πŸ˜‰

    Paddy ~ Never say never….. ❗

    Nancy ~ I hope the Rowan is Mr Bean and not Rowan Plaything (Toyboy) !
