May 23 Weekly Thread--Riding In The Back
We've all done it. Given up the helm so somebody else can chart our way. We went aft, to a more couchlike seating arrangement and possible living room appointments. Traded the steering wheel and pedals for a grab handle and maybe even foot rests, heated, cooled, and vibrating seats, and mahagony fold-up tables.
Whether alone or with company, a posh rear cabin can be an escape from nightmarish traffic and other more pedestrian nuisances.
As I've mentioned, four-door cars and limousines are a fancy of mine. Some seem to have been designed more as a passenger's car than a driver's. Others have at least made an attempt to please a discerning driver, some have not.
Or were we not so lucky? Were we back there not by choice but by command? Were the seat belts not the only restraints on us that day? Was the destination not a place of our choice? In either event, we've all been "back there" for one reason or another.
So do you have any memorable stories you'd like to share? Maybe a prank or wedding or other? A first date?
And as always, this Open Thread is the place for random, off-topic conversations that don't belong anywhere else.
