I took the wifey-mobile for service today and guess what she is driving?? Yikes!! Here's a short list of what I can expect:

1. A "I almost hit someone because I was looking at the kids story."
2. Door dings from parking up front at Wally-world
3. Pretzel crumbs from the kids
4. fingerprints on the windows
5. Half empty water bottles
6. And the seat against the steering wheel.

Sound familiar?? I can live with most of these as long as there are no accidents!! I'm really scared. :(

I know the feeling...she took it to Bally's Gym yesterday. When she got home, I DID NOT ask her if she had a good workout!. My first question was "How's the Ridgeline? You didn't put a scratch on her? Did you? :D

It took my wife (aka "The Warden") a full month before she got the nerve to take the truck for a spin. She loved it of course. :eek: Now everytime I get in it I have to readjust everything and she locks everyhting up tight where I usually leave the roof tilted up to let the heat out. Is it just me or does anyone else always see 114 degrees in the cluster when they first get in? :confused:

THIS JUST IN......

a message on my phone, "I'm taking your truck now honey, is there anything I need to know?" Now I'm really worried. As soon as I reach her...my reply will be "yeah...it's still perfect, and keep it that way!"

disclaimer: This in no way reflects my views on women drivers. it's just a coincidence that my wife is a woman.

I am not that nervous about my wife driving the truck, when she does she will be fine. She used to drive a Suburban which could probably swallow the Ridgeline whole and still have some space left over. As long as she stays away from the city that is, I don't even trust myself driving in the city.

ha ha!!

She has had very few accidents and no tickets. It's just when I drive with her, I spend a lot of time tensing up and smashing my foot in to the ghost passenger side brake pedal. That's why when I got her a car to drive our kids around in, a got the safest thing I could find....a Volvo...so they say.

Yea, Just wait till your teenager asks to borrow your Ridge!!!!!! I'd gladly give it up to the wife rather than let the kids have at it. :D

Oh, please. The sexism is getting mighty thick in this post. Your wives better not read this or you are likely to be doing your own laundry and driving the volvo.

My first husband was an AWFUL driver.

I am still a better driver than my hubby now... I get tense when HE drives MY car. I think men have an overinflated sense of how good a driver they are anyways :D

No sexism here, my husband just happens to be a man :eek:

I know how you feel! I work were my co workers drive the company cars rough and they don't open and get out of the vehicles with caution some times. I get to work early so I can get the best spot in front of my office a pity anyone who hurts The Ridgeline Raider! But they know who it belongs too and they don't want to me angry at them. ;)
