Why is it that you can be a thoughtful, good, reliable and safe driver until that certain moment when you offer someone, out of the goodness of your heart, a lift.
Then all manner of crazies happen - near misses; mad drivers; cars jumping out on you; learner drivers going 10 miles per hour ALL the time; lorries scaring the life out of you by driving really close.
Luckily it was only one of the above and nothing was dented (still got good reflexes) but my passenger must have thought I'd only just passed my test yesterday instead of driving for nearly 20 years.
And I'm sure that she'll probably NEVER accept a lift from me again. Sam xx
