Good Things About Being In the Car
Our class activity got me thinking about all the little annoying things about life. I enjoyed hearing what other people had to say, and thought it was very interesting that so many peoples’ “pet peeves” had to do with driving and being in the car.
And I completely understand. I feel like as people, we are more likely to get annoyed in a car. In that confined space, with no where to go, things seem to bother you even more. There were many examples of things that happen on the road that really annoyed people in our English class.
So to counterbalance that, I thought I would share a few things I really love about being in the car.
1st: the sunroof
I love being in the car when the sunroof is open. It provides just the right amount of breeze and lets the sunlight directly into the car. Also, it makes the car seem more open and considerably less stuffy.
When there are too many people packed into a car, it makes me really happy. When every seat in the car is taken (and maybe even a few more people squeezed in) my mood is automatically improved. And I don’t even have to be in the car. I love just seeing this occur, especially in trucks. Seeing three large men squeezed into the front seat of a truck never fails to make me smile. I am aware this is not the safest way to travel, but it makes being in the car much more fun.
3rd: riding shotgun
I do not enjoy driving nearly as much as I enjoy riding in the passenger seat. It is so relaxing to lean back, put your feet on the dashboard, and enjoy the breeze from the open sunroof. Some of my favorite conversations have come from the front seat of a car. It is a definite benefit of having no where to go. And you get to be in charge of the music, which is another excellent aspect of being in the car!
So, overall, there are a lot of good things about riding in a car. Even though terrible drivers are frustrating and backseat drivers get annoying, it’s not all bad. Just open the sunroof, play some music, and talk to a friend.
