    I particularly liked the one about the steering wheel being moved to the other side of the car.

    Made me think of a time way back in 1980 on my first trip to the USA. Was based in Boston for 6 weeks, in between courses my colleague and i had a sorta long weekend due to end of one course and start of another. Decided we would rent a car and drive to Toronto. Well its end of January in one of US worst winters. Tons of snow dumped on Boston and the surrounding area.
    We decide to drive to Toronto through the night. Now ya gotta remember we were used to driving on the other side of the road. No problem we took turns driving in blowing snow. Well into the night this colleague sleeping in the passenger seat suddenly jumps up with his hands straight out to grab his steering wheel. Then he woke up. Though he had fallen asleep at the wheel except there was none. I laughed my head off after i got over the fright.

    The one about the steering wheel reminded me of my first honeymoon... we went to Jamaica. About the 3rd day there I finally talked my wife into taking a drive into Montego Bay... we rented a car and took off... about 10 minutes into the trip, we rounded a bend and met a dump truck coming our way... he was on his side of the road, I was on my side of the road.... my new wife screamed, grabbed me and my immediate reaction was to get on the right hand side of the road... right into the truck's lane.... fortunately I recovered before we met head on... I think by the time we reached Montego Bay I had gotten my heart slowed back to normal speed and swallowed back to where it belonged... we had our first fight that day too..

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
