Who’s really in the wrong here? Also, I am not a bad driver, I just don’t drive exactly how she does.
This is a stupid argument. She should know the saying "if you want something done right you should do it yourself" and you shouldn't have told it would be her fault if you got in an accident while driving because she critiques you. You both suck.
I just got tired of her saying it frankly. I think she was embarrassed because we were talking in front of her friend (who agrees that I am a bad driver).
Even if I am 100% a bad driver, is my argument still wrong? If someone is undoubtedly a bad driver, wouldn’t a smart person not let them drive?
I think you might be a bad driver anon. Why can't you just be better at it?
Whether I’m the worst driver or an F1 champion, it doesn’t affect my argument.
If you thought someone was consistently a terrible driver, would you make them drive you and your family everywhere?
>If you thought someone was consistently a terrible driver, would you make them drive you and your family everywhere
I would want him to get better at it. The only way you can do that is if you practice driving the way she would like you to. Obviously it's not so bad that she's worried you're going to kill her and your kids, but it's bad enough that she feels the need to say something. Just stop sucking at it.
The reasons that my driving is “bad” is not due to skill. It’s not something that can be practiced. Getting on adderall or some kind of add medications would be the only way to “get better”, and I’d rather not die of a heart attack at 35 from taking amphetamines.
So you're unobservant? That's very dangerous and yeah she is an idiot for not driving herself. Still doesn't make what you said correct or okay though. It would still be your fault if you got in an accident because you were driving. Your petty blame shifting bullshit wasn't helpful all you did was make her angry with you.
But again, it’s not something that can be “practiced”. It’s neurological. And I’m not going to fuck up my health to “fix” something that has never been a problem for me until I met her.
I just told you not to and that she should drive. Shit comprehension skills too I guess. I just said that you suck for what you said.
Okay, you’re right. I was acknowledging that you are correct, a reasonable person would not put themselves in (perceived) danger willingly. So basically you’re answer is yes, she is in the wrong.
My answer is she is wrong and you are an asshole. Mistakes were made by both sides.
>But again, it’s not something that can be “practiced”.
Wrong, unless you have autism or some kind of developmental disorder. Assuming your not disabled you can get better. However I think your wife is being annoying, if she has an issue she should drive.
Here’s the thing, I’ve never been in an accident, I’ve actively avoided near miss accidents because of my SKILL at avoiding those who can’t drive, and my insurance rates are lower than hers, so even the (same) insurance company, the ones who will not hesitate to charge you more for being a poor driver, decided that she is more of a liability than I am.
Look up the Smith System's 5 keys and develop a habit of following them. Anybody could do this.
>Whether I’m the worst driver or an F1 champion, it doesn’t affect my argument.
yes it does you obstinate homosexual. if you have 2 other people thinking you're bad, maybe they have some merit. you however refuse to hear it. you clearly have massive insecurity issues, and the fact that you can't take it from your wife of all people is real concerning.
your fucking retarded jfc learn to read
I admit I’m a bad driver.
Now please tell how that makes the statement “if you insist a bad driver drives you around, they must not actually be that bad, because only a crazy person would willingly put themselves in danger by insisting the bad driver always drive” incorrect. M
>Even if I am 100% a bad driver, is my argument still wrong? If someone is undoubtedly a bad driver, wouldn’t a smart person not let them drive?
Your wife can and should correct you when they see you make a mistake as a result of bad driving (Ex: Go through a stop sign, forget to signal) but probably shouldn’t get angry at you and put you down for it unless you are knowingly driving carelessly.
I don’t know I’d go as far as to say that future accidents I make are my wife’s fault if I was in your position, but you definitely have a point in saying your wife should drive if you’re such a bad driver. That’s what I’d suggest if your wife wasn’t so insistent on you driving, from the sound of it.
I understand where you are coming from. My point is basically that, if it is so bad that you need to make it a point every time I do it that I’m bad at it, any reasonable person would instead do it themselves.
I just can’t take you seriously if you say the food tastes like shit and keep shoveling it in and asking for seconds.
It’s hard to say who’s really in the wrong since we only have your perspective, but assuming everything you’ve said is right and there aren’t any important details you’ve left out it’s 100% your wife who’s in the wrong. They have no right to complain about how bad you are at driving 24/7 if you are legitimately doing your best to drive safely, especially when there’s no real reason they couldn’t just drive the car themself.
Why are you married to a dumb bitch?
She's a useless bitch and clearly in the wrong. Since she is so passionate about gender norms when it means she can sit on her ass, tell her that ladies don't backseat drive.
Taking a step back, it is obvious she just wants to pick a fight with you. Who knows why? Try getting her at a vulnerable moment and hitting her with the, "you good?" and see what's up.
You married an argumentative cunt. Congratulations
Your wife doesn't respect you.
You both suck, both of you need driving lessons and practice. You can practice driving so both of you can stop coping and start acting like adults. Jesus fuck.
