re: My wife is a terrible driver but she doesnt think so - TU Rob
[quote]Were you around 40 or low 50's [/quote] I'm not even there now. I'm 35 and she's a little younger. I had just graduated high school and we'd been dating a few months and she didn't have her license, despite being 16 for over a month. She said her mom was scared to ride with her and teac...

re: My wife is a terrible driver but she doesnt think so - TU Rob
[quote]My wife is a clutch dumper, but outside of that she drives alright.[/quote] Anyone I've ever known that can drive stick is usually a great driver. Especially if they learned on one. Any idiot can put it in D, mash pedals, and steer. It takes more to work a clutch and know when to shift ...

re: My wife is a terrible driver but she doesnt think so - TU Rob
Is she by chance Asian or African-American? The OT will need to know these pertinent facts before issuing any advice. And they will still advise you to PIIHB and degrade you for no pics....

re: Who remembers report cards? - TU Rob
[quote]You'd have to cipher that for me. It was easy back when[/quote] I feel the same way. The first report card I saw had all Cs on it, and I about lost it. My wife had to explain that they don't do traditional letter grades in lower elementary, and C was the best. 1-3 is the same way, 1 th...

re: Who remembers report cards? - TU Rob
My kids school does 1, 2, or 3 for grades and three letters which two of them mean satisfactory or consistently. I don't know what the bad letter is because I don't have idiot kids. She just got hers last week and it was all C and 3. ...
