How to know where a driver is from:

One hand on wheel, one hand on horn: New York

One hand on wheel, one finger out window: Chicago

One hand on wheel, one hand on newspaper, foot solidly on accelerator: Boston

One hand on wheel, cradling cell phone,brick on accelerator: California

With gun in lap: L.A.

Both hands on wheel, eyes shut, both feet on brake, quivering in terror: Ohio, but driving in California.

Both hands in air, gesturing, both feet on accelerator, head turned to talk to someone in back seat: Italy

One hand on latte, one knee on wheel, cradling cell phone, foot on brake, mind on game: Seattle

One hand on wheel, one hand on hunting rifle, alternating between both feet being on the accelerator and both on the brake, throwing a McDonald's bag out the window: Texas city male

One hand on wheel, one hand hanging out the window, keeping speed steadily at 70mph, driving down the center of the road unless coming around a blind curve, in which case they are on the left side of the road: Texas country male

One hand constantly refocusing the rear-view mirror to show different angles of the BIG hair, one hand going between mousse, brush, and rat-tail to keep the helmet hair going, both feet on the accelerator, poodle steering the car, chrome .38 revolver with mother of pearl inlaid handle in the glove compartment: Texas female

Both hands on steering wheel in a relaxed posture, eyes constantly checking the rear-view mirror to watch for visible emissions from their own or another car: Colorado

One hand on steering wheel, yelling obscenities, the other hand waving gun out the window and firing repeatedly, keeping a careful eye out for landmarks along the way so as to be able to come back and pick up any bullets that didn't hit other motorists so as not to litter: Colorado resident on spotting a car with Texas plate.

Four wheel drive pickup truck, shotgun mounted in rear window, beer cans on floor, squirrel tails attached to antenna: West Virginia male.

Two hands gripping wheel, blue hair barely visible above window level, driving 35 on the interstate in the left lane with the left blinker on: Florida "seasoned citizen" driver, also known as "no-see-um".


  1. boy howdy that last one is the truth i can tell you for sure!

    smiles, bee

  2. nothing about Pennsylvania drivers, must be because we aren't on the roads we're too busy shoveling the

  3. Scary part is that even though this is humor, it's right! LOL @ Florida.. saw them all over the place in Naples.

  4. Hey, I'm from Boston and I do not read the paper while I'm driving. Anymore.


    Big hugs :]

  5. All of those are hysterical. I would imagine that they are all very close to the truth. Thanks for the laugh today.

  6. So...when are they going to start putting hand guns in vending machine in L.A. so the tourists can "blend in" and defend themselves?

  7. A Bimoette is driving, a Bimboob is riding shotgun, while a Bimvestite and a Bimbrownie are in the bacseat. Four seniors from Hollywood High! Just sayin'.

  8. That driller is sooo funny!

    That FL one is spot on and one of the things we hated when we lived here full time. I promise never to have blue hair!

    Have a great w/e. Big hugs, honey...

  9. I liked this posting so much I linked it on my FB page.

    Hilarious. Now where did I put my shotgun and squirrel tails?


  10. Is big hair back in style? Loved the Texas female. LOL!

  11. Yep I remembled one driver for a time.

  12. You may want to postpone any trips you may have made to Texas. Word has a way of getting around there. I know... it's the same here.

  13. A wig sighting above the dashboard in a car traveling at 65 mph on a sidewalk, would be indicative of a Florida driver.

    Walking in Florida scares me.

  14. Having visited Italy and Florida on a couple of occasions I have to agree its true! I don't think I will ever visit that seems like a crazy place...

  15. And for those of us who have lived all over the country, we meld together one of these or another so that no one knows where we're really from!

  16. I don't know about all of them, but you've certainly got New York and Boston right. LOL

  17. The biggest problem is in the photo. You crazy Americans all drive on the wrong side of the road!!!

  18. Wow what a politically incorrect post, I love it. Although I do think the Chicago person could be a universal driver. Just saying as a famous person once said, LOL.

    Big Hugs

  19. I suffer from terrible road rage from bad drivers, may birds crap on their windshields! Those were great Sandee, hugs and loves! :)

  20. Makes me feel very safe to drive anywhere!
