Looks like DMV and State Farm has better opinion of me than the wife best of all
Anybody experience similar discrimination?
OH YEAH, have I experienced this.
I used to have a girlfriend that was HORRIBLE about this. She was the BAD DRIVER because she drove so slow she was a hazard. She always complained I was a bad driver because I drove to fast and recklessly (she'd wait 20 minutes at a stop sign because she wouldn't go if any car was within 1/2 mile).
One day I got a speeding ticket and to her that was instant proof that I was the worse driver because I had a ticket. Well, while on the interstate once, we stopped at a rest stop (she was driving) and when we came out, she STOPPED right at the end of the merge ramp back on to the expressway. I FREAKED and screamed how dangerous it was. You should NEVER stop here, I said. She fought with me to the end about how it was safer if the way wasn't clear.
Finally, when I was going for my driver's ed class (for ticket) I said I'd ask the teacher what he thinks about stopping on end of entrance ramp to expressway. Of course, he freaked and said it was one of the worst, most dangerous things you could do too.
What happens when I tell her? "You are making that up.....he agreed with me and you just don't want to admit it".
There was NO WINNING with her.
