Posts Tagged ‘teamwork’

A friend and his wife recently went on an extended car trip across the United States. He wrote, “If you want to test your marriage, try being together for 30 days in a car in strange places at strange times in strange weather and see if you can hold the ‘Till death do us part’ together without speeding up the process.”

I think being in the same vehicle for extended periods, far from a sanctuary (when a person is desperate to be alone), has the same danger factor as home remodeling does!

I already know my husband of many years and I are not compatible enough to arrive at a far away destination in a state of sanity.

Our powers of compatibility and teamwork were tested early on when we got involved in a car rally! He was the driver. I was the navigator. As time ticked by, we became strangers in a strange land, with nasty tempers. I can’t even remember if we finished the rally. Or if we were talking after the rally.

My husband drives most all the time now when we go places together. Older and wiser, I lean back on the passenger side and let him argue with the woman on the GPS about HER directions!

She clearly gets pissed after a time when he misunderstands or ignores what she told him, and in her British accent starchly says, “Re-culc-oolating.”

His reserve gone, he bursts out, “NOW WHAT!? GODDAMN IT! I DID WHAT YOU TOLD ME!”
