Have you heard? A recent Allstate survey says that Virgos are the worst drivers hands down. (Full disclosure: I’m a Virgo, and my husband is a Taurus.) I obviously think this is crap, but I’m really agitated because I know it’s only a matter of time before my husband reads this and finds out the news. Why would I care? Because when he does, I will never (ever!) hear the end of it. Although we don’t fight often, most of the arguments we do have, happen in the car over driving skills.
Here’s the situation: I think I’m the best driver in the world and my husband wholeheartedly believes that honor belong to him, and him only. Plus, we both have two completely different driving styles and opinions on what “backseat driving” really means. If we’re stuck in the car together for more than an hour chances are one of us is already driving the other crazy about the alleged right and wrongs of manning an automobile. Ask The Man and he’ll say most of the time I’m the one who starts the argument, usually with some “nagging” about defensive driving or “watching speed limits”. But if you ask me, he starts the argument by driving like a teenager and expecting me to just sit back and pretend I don’t notice. (More full disclosure: Now my husband will say I drive like a granny, and that’s why everything he does scares me.) We may never have a clear winner in this fight, but it’s safe to say this new study doesn’t help my case.
