Well, at least it wasn't half the front bumper that came off!

And I've just realized that I have driven around 7000 miles so far this year, if I am recalling my mileages right. My brother and I put 3500 miles on the same car over this summer, and that was with me having my own car not breaking down for a month or two.

Boring DCC title is boring.

Speaking of miles, since my mother started her new job courting animals around, she's stacked nearly 100,000 miles (perhaps more since I asked her a ~month ago) on her '98 Grand Voyager. Pretty insane, really, as I hardly drive a few miles a week and she drives nearly 500 every day just to make one delivery.

My mother doesn't have to go nearly that far, but she still has to drive a lot since she's a Realtor. Perhaps that's why our PT Cruise keeps breaking. Haha, who knows. But it's been hard these days with our cars because we have three drivers who have to go places and only two vehicles (only one right now actually because our PT needs new tires yup.)

Er, my dad has to drive about fifty miles max daily, so my family doesn't stack that many miles. We might have reached 30,000 miles on one of our cars. The only place I really have to go a good ways would be to and from school, which is downtown so I have to take the highway every morning. Actually, I go about the same distance as my dad, if not more.

We have to drive about 20 miles each way whenever we need to do any shopping outside of simple groceries... down old country roads that aren't in the best shape. I think both of our family's vehicles have over 50,000 miles on them atm.

With that in mind, it's my dream to someday buy one of those cars on eBay that's 25-30 years old and only has 15,000 miles on it xD

Cause I'm poor and the second I got my license I was afraid I was going to be forced onto my mom's insurance but now I live at school 9 months a year so we took the risk and it turns out they did try to force me onto the insurance so my mom had to change to a provider that was more accommodating to my circumstances.

I actually haven't driven in awhile... blame a combination of the parents needing both cars and my inability to afford decent insurance. Not that I'd have anywhere to drive to anyway.

I actually never had a car throughout college, which might have been for the best since from what I heard, the parking enforcement officers there like to swoop in like vultures.

I have been driving since 16/17 (whenever it is you can get your G1 in Ontario) but now in the UK I am thinking of taking driving lessons to learn how to drive a Standard car, and.. learning how to drive on the other side of the road without feeling confused haha.

I remember this story where this mom that got in a front-end crash driving a minivan on the wrong side of the freeway drunk and high, thus killing her eight kids and their grandma.

That's sad and all, but my question is, what the hell were the kids thinking getting into that car?

Would you refuse to get into a car with your own parent when they were high and drunk and therefore probably unpredictable? I know that when I was a kid, I wouldn't have. I'd have just done what I was told.

Anyway, about driving, I've not learned to drive yet and most likely never will. But hopefully I'll be living in a city for a long time so I shouldn't need to!

Yeah I trusted my mom as a kid and if she said "I'm fine to drive" I would have believed her. I probably still would because she's never given me any reason not to XD;

It's not quiiiiite October here where I live, but I can tell you October is pretty fun for me.

And no, it has nothing to do with alcohol. That tastes like poop.

You obviously haven't tried rum yet.

Tom is OBSESSED with good beer. Like he goes and shops for homebrews and microbrews or whatever is this the right terminology? I think his beer tastes like dirt. Is alcohol synonymous with October?
