He never asks permission, say thanks or anything. I am a little worried that one day I will have to slam on my brakes when an animal runs across the path and he is going to rear-end me.

I am not sure what I need to do. If I try to drop him, I hurt myself for the other three days that I commute. I can't stop and wait for long because I have to be home in time for my wife to get to her night job. I guess I will just have to live with it.
Opening your mouth and saying something isn't an option?
