Re: Weird driving habbits/motions... (Maflagulator)

I have the weird habit of SLAMMING the throttle when Im tryin to accelerate fast. Like the more weight I put into it the fast, instead of being quick, Im just rough. I need to work on that, my hands and shifts are smooth, but I literally stomp the gas.

My friend Chris shifts like his life depends on it. He shifts in the blink of an eye.

Re: (nilocs)

When I'm sitting in traffic I have the bad habit of adjusting stuff. The gear lever, the fan speed, the radio volume, the contents of the change tray, the windows, etc. I'm just fidgity I guess.

Re: (lacuna)

i sometimes do math tricks with other plate numbers.
hmmm, how do i explain this?
errr... for example, the car in front of me has "532" in its plate, i try to guess how much i should add to reach "999." i dunno, just bored, i guess.
other times, i compare two plate numbers, and try to find a connection between the two. it's pretty hard to explain, really.
sometimes i try to find meaning in the letters of the plate numbers, i mean, i pretend that its an acronym for something, and i form my own meanings.
how's that for weird?

Re: (Kafer Wolf)

Whenever I get bored I track down rattles. Does it go away if I open the glove box? Does it go away if I put my hand on the instrument hood? Does it go away if...

I also always have my window wound down when I'm driving. All the time. Even in winter. When its snowing. At night. I just hate it witht he window up but anyone who rides in my car always begs me to wind it up because they're freezing their nuts off. Maybe I should be driving a convertible

My girlfriend leans when she turns - does the same exact thing if she plays a driving game on a computer too. Not just a little counteraction to any Gs, but leans like a biatch

Re: Weird driving habbits/motions... (snuffyboy3)

When sitting in traffic and sometimes at traffic lights I continue to put the car in 1st then neutral, push the gear shift back and forth to ensure it's in neutral, let the clutch out, repeat until it's time to move again.
1st, neutral, 1st, neutral, 1st, neutral

Re: Weird driving habbits/motions... (DiscoStu)

when I'm in a "high-excitement" driving situation, I find that I sorta cross my big toe with the one next to it on my right foot...
weird? I think so....
