Learning To Drive - Aloha Friday



My Question:
Who taught you to drive?
*******
My husband taught me in a shopping centre at night when it was empty. He is a good teacher. He didn't let me feel like I was a failure, or pressured when I make a mistake. I went from 3mph to 90mph!


Kailani says "In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link on Kailani's blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
 
I am also joining in with Friday Follow. So if you happen to visit and follow me, I will definitely be returning the love.

  2. Ah, that is really sweet! My DH is currently trying to teach me. I am really freaked out about the responsibility. I wish I had learned when I was younger... when I wasn't as timid.

  7. My dad, the driving instructor, and my high school boyfriend all taught me. The best times were with my bf, scariest were with my dad because he had no patience, and the most embarrassing were in Dr. Ed. because I had to share the car with 2 males plus the male teacher. I had those 2 boys clinging to each other in the back seat one day. Ah memories! :)

    Found you through Friday Follow :)

  15. My parents did. They each had totally different styles. About a block away from a stop sign my mom would start shouting "There's a stop sign! STOP! Stooooop!"

    My dad would be like "That was a stop sign back there. Next time you should stop."

  16. PS: Your comment about Texas being so long to drive through made me laugh. I'm from California and spent many a trip driving from there to Dallas. When we hit El Paso, we knew we were half way there.

  31. I started driving at a very young age. I was always tall so I could easily reach the pedals. My mom would let me drive up and down our road when I was 10 years old.

  36. My father, tried anyway. On the manual transmission (shift & clutch) family vehicle, instead of on my mother's newer automatic. (groan)

    My teen daughter starts driver's training this fall! Yikes.

    It was actually my best friend who finally explained the clutch to me in a way I could understand.

    Stopping by from Friday Follow and am now following you on GFC.
