    Or the lack of stimulus led to boredom, they were sleepy, and feel asleep.

    That'd be very inconvenient if you happen to die while driving. It should get you to the destination so your relatives could take care of your burial.

    They should just put another set of controls in the back seat... My wife would be certain to buy 2 teslas.

    A few years ago I decided it was best to let my wife drive. I don't have to worry about driving or listen to someone telling me how to drive. Much less stress in the car.

    Wiser man than I.

    I find my attention being drawn towards my wife, standing on the passenger floorboard, as if to invoke some kind of telekinetic force on the brake pedal...
    Usually by the time her back arches off the seat, I depress the brake, allowing her to temporarily sink back into the passenger seat.

    I really should just concentrate on driving, but all the arguing and suggestion causes my mind to wander.

    I realize this post may seem suggestive - I swear, despite having a corrupt mind, there is no double entendre intended in this post.
