Talking in my Car

Updated on March 4, 2012

I have a confession to make. I talk in my car, don't know for sure if I am talking to myself, or the other people, I promise, I am not Crazy, or at least I hope not, just being Communicative on my long Commute. Most of the time, I'm not even mad, just VENTING, as you call it.


And even though I love to drive,I've only been driving since 2003. I feel like Captain Kirk on the SS Enterprise. To boldly go where no WOMAN has gone before, but in reality sometime,it's like if the ship had to depend on Dr. McCoy( Bones) to sit in instead of famous James Kirk or Spock. I feel Driving is a Privilege, and a Honor, also a Responsibility.

45 minutes to an hour drive I don't take the Free Way, of course I take the creepy road to my job.

But I love to drive,and it is ALWAYS interesting to me. And just like the SS Enterprise,it's a new voyage everyday.


This is how interesting it is;

  • "DETOUR?!!!!"
  • "Ahhhh!" My headlights shine on a man walking limping on the side of the road, this FREAKIN' scares me!!! You would think I would get used to this on this road, but nope. And of course I think of the movie Night of the Living Dead. I swear they look like a Zombie!

  • "Oh, I'm so sorry little squirrel."
  • "Nice truck,Dude" I have been known to give a happy thumbs-up on nice vehicles.
  • "At least go the speed limit."
  • "Watch out People, there's a Cop back there." I blink my lights at them, then I look in the the rear view mirror, and they have slowed down, this makes me happy.
  • "Thanks, for the blinker, bud." NO blinker
  • "Come on, you piece of Crap." Talking to my car.
  • "That's it Baby." Also talking to my car.


And I have a Love-mostly-Hate relationship with the lady on the Bluetooth. She almost made me cry one time. When you first get a No Hands Device and you have to set it up or program it, beware,because my accent was so strong she would not accept any of my family's names, very frustrating.

If you can't drive and you have to depend on someone else, it hurts your pride. It did mine. So I learned to drive, but sitting in to take the driver's test, it was un-nerving, everyone else was 16 or 17.

Happy Driving and be Safe

Do you talk to people in the other vehicles? Chime in folks, what do ya say?

      I enjoyed the part about the Bluetooth not understanding your voice or names you say. I have a Onstar hands free phone built in my Chevy Cobalt. Everything bothers it when trying to get a call through from road noise to music playing softly. It works fine if things are quiet or if someone calls you. I find myself screaming into the mic above my head sometimes only to end up stopping the car to make it acknowledge what I'm saying to it.

      I talk to myself too in the car. It is a perfect place to vent. You are not in anybody's space. Just watch out the speed limit and traffic laws. Great hub! Voted up.

      Very funny and entertaining! I would love to see the conversation between you and a stubborn GPS unit. That would be quite the heated argument.

      Yeah,JimDoyle,the Bluetooth was a project was a challenge. My husband has one of those that clip on the sun-visor and to me he sounds like a duck. Lol.

      My mate has got a bluetooth/mobile phone option in his car - but it is terrible. It is like trying to talk to someone who is a long way from his phone, and like a radio station not completely tuned in.

      "At least go the speed limit!" I say that ALL the time! I talk to myself all the time in my car. And when I start singing....LOOK OUT. But I sometimes forget that I have people in the car with me and they don't appreciate my singing. Oh well! :) Thumbs up Dee, great hub!
