Ack. Usually casual carpool is such an easy and interesting way to get to work. Usually. When it goes wrong, it really goes wrong. This morning the woman driving had the heat on full blast (it isn't cold, mind you). She explained to the three of us that she had it on so her hair would dry faster. I cracked the back window a little so I could breathe. A few seconds later, she used her button to roll it back up. I told her I'd prefer to keep it down a bit since she needed the heat on and she said no, because she could feel the cold air on her neck. I could actually see sweat beads on the poor guy in the front seat, taking the brunt of the blower. This on top of the fact that she had the radio blaring and laughed loudly at every motorist we passed who'd been pulled over by a cop (oddly, that was a total of four cars this morning). Tres thoughtless! Anyway, I feel like a plate of leftovers that's been microwaved on high for 25 minutes. And before 9:00 in the morning!
