Strange Things Happen Behind The Wheel

When riding your bike, whether for recreation or commuting to work you tend to notice drivers doing the weirdest things. It’s strange how people act different once they get behind the wheel. Some instantly get hit with road rage, while others think they’re invisible to the world and start doing funny things. Every so often you see guys picking their nose like they were digging for gold. Some of the ladies put on their makeup. Some would eat a full course meal. Others park the car and turn on the window steamers. Does this feature come standard on new sports car? Some would sing at the top of their lungs thinking they sound just as good if not better than the person on the radio. Its funny how being enclosed in your car would sometimes make you forget that people could see you. Have you guys seen people behind the wheel doing stranger things?

    Just this morning as I was out buying donuts and cookies (for my kids), I pulled up to a truck with some guy taking a toke of the ganja weed, Mary Jane, Mar-E-Juana…you get the point.

    I’ve also pulled up next to people that was on the phone, eating, smoking and drinking…not all at the same time, but executing each move one right after the other with precision.

    A while ago, up in New Hampshire, I was driving behind a man who was trimming his hair with scissors using his rear-view mirror.

    I wish I had a camera the other day, when I saw the young lady behind the wheel of a Honda Civic waiting for the traffic light to turn green. In one hand the cell phone, and in the other a slice of pizza!

    On my way back from a Nascar race (did he say Nascar?) we were behind a truck that seemed to have a single passenger. That is, until the girl surfaced. Needless to say, the guy had a grin on his face.
