Whisper is a fun little iPhone app that lets people anonymously "confess" something. BuzzFeed has taken to posting groups of funny, odd, or shocking "confessions" from the site, and I've been wondering how many of those had to relate to driving. So, I downloaded the app, punched "driving" into the search, and this is what I found in about a half hour (a half hour! not even scraping the surface of the archives!):
I wouldn't know personally, but I imagine that pivoting my foot by the heel might be a little difficult if I had a four-inch point on the bottom of it.
You're either on your way somewhere, late, or on your trying to enjoy the scenery. Unfortunately, not everybody is doing the same thing at the same time, and when the two meet on a two-lane road in a no-passing zone, someone's going to get annoyed. Although I am surprised to see road rage from a Prius owner that isn't environmentally-based and directed at a Hummer.
You gotta stay awake somehow...
Oh, something controversial. Yes, let's stop blaming Audi, Toyota, and Ford for our own driving errors (yes, Ford...my neighbor drove a Windstar into his lawn while revving it up to 4000 RPM and said the brakes didn't work).
Driving with OCD is a pain in the ass. True story.
It's good to see someone enjoying a drive through the country...
...even if it's someone else's car.
It's too bad they're knowingly going to put the lives of the rest of the people on the road in danger...
...but at least they're not enjoying it. What the hell???
There can't be THAT many designated drivers. Why?
Cameraderie. A beautiful thing.
Distracted driving is DANGEROUS. Also true story.
Distractions aren't always from smartphones!
Really, how common IS this?
Road rage in America: the cars aren't the only weapons!
Yeah, I'm like that.
Save the Manuals!
Awkward at first, and progressively more distressing the longer you're stuck in traffic.
Especially if a cop is following you. I live a few blocks from the McHenry County Sheriff headquarters, and I'm constantly being followed unintentionally, wondering, "did I do something wrong?"
Cars can help us find love...no matter what kind of love we are looking for!
Also nothing I have personal experience with, but I imagine with a big enough car and an automatic transmission it's possible.
I'm going to assume that people aren't staring at my green-wheeled car from now on.
If only there was a way to smell this on a driver at a traffic stop...
Um, I'm going to assume that his car isn't a one-seater, because when I got MY license, I went out driving with whatever girlfriend I had at the time. Usually looking for a nice spot to park, watch a sunset, and curse whoever created center consoles.
There SERIOUSLY needs to be a way to look up who posts this shit.
