I just got back from my first driving lesson and Im proud to say I didn't kill anyone or hit anything and my husband's car (or my soon to be car) is still intact with no scratches. Alhamdulillah it went better than I expected it. I was soo nervous.
My husband just pulls into a parking lot (of a church no less) and then tells me to get in the drivers seat. I thought that he was just gonna show me how to turn, put the car in reverse, etc just the basics you think. NO. He tells me to take the car onto the road. Mind you, the last time I was behind the wheel of a car I was like 15, it would be 19 but sittin behind the wheel of you mom's car to turn it on doesn't count.
At least I didn't freak out, it just made me a bit more nervous. I know the guy who was driving behind was getting mad or I think he was, but at least he didn't curse at me or honk he's horn. If it was NY, those swear words would of been flying like crazy. But thank God people are a bit nicer and patient down here.
If it was my driver's test, I think I would of failed 1) for taking my hands off the wheel. My hubby is saying Im dangerous because of it. The car didn't spin outta control or crash so no big deal right? 2) I turned without signaling and didn't come to a complete stop, oh well I'll remember it next time I guess. I think that's all, but overall I did a good job.
My husband was making fun of me because I was stopped at a school bus and a little girl got off the bus and crossed the street. He kept saying 'don't hit her, don't hit her unless you wanna go to jail'. Mind you the girl was crossing like 100 ft away and the car was at a complete standstill. I know, he's just messing with me. Insha'Allah, we'll see how tomorrow's driving lesson goes, if I live to tell about it, just kidding ;)
