I actually saw two people switching positions to drive one time, while on the highway. They must have had the cruise control on, and then there was this jumble of arms and legs as they switched. There are some crazy people out there.

I was 10 years old in the mid fities, riding with my parents and 6 year old sister on a country highway in the summer on a hot day back when cars did not have AC. Trying to impress my little sister, I stuck my tongue out at a man hitchiking on the road. My tongue was still stuck out when my father said,"Poor bugger, it's so hot out, I am going to give him a ride." My father stopped the car, backed up and the man got in on the other side of my sister.My sister was trying not to giggle and I was so mortified that I pressed my face against the window and refused to look at the man. I was terrified that he would tell my parents. I am 62 and I am still embarassed to think that I was ever such an unkind brat.
