Yup, I worked out what car I’m driving. I made sure no one was watching when I walked round the back to read all the metal tags.
The other cars get out my way. I wonder why 😀 I think my lane positioning is getting better, and they’re big lanes so I got a bit of lee-way… but I have this impression I may have flashed danger a mile off when I first got into that car 😉
It is a red car, that must be why! It was pretty shiny when I got it, I felt waaay not posh enough to step inside… In case you are wondering by now, it is a Pontiac G6. Very nice!
Someone explained to me which pedal was which. I can’t believe how much easier it is to not have a gear/clutch to distract from what is going on outside the car. It is a big help right now for concentration-purposes, like when I’m counting the number of lanes to work out which one to turn into on a left turn.
After a few weeks now, the other cars are starting to drive past me normally. There was only one lady I totally wound up cos she never changed lane at the right time, that was the day I found out I was getting sold (but that’s another story!).
She could have changed lanes on time, only she was speeding and trying to slip in ahead of me before the motorway exit. If it wasn’t for my rather emotionally-stressed situation, I’d be even more completely definite it was her own fault! And at least it wasn’t dangerous, it just meant she had to drive in a big loop to get back on the highway. I laugh now when I remember her face 😀 that’ll teach her to speed!
And I can park now, almost… usually by the third attempt.
