Buying My Friend a Driver-less Car

Buying My Friend a Driver-less Car

I found the perfect gift for my friend the other day. A driver-less car. I’m not trying to be mean or anything. Just… trying to save my own life?

You see, she really isn’t the best driver. And her Dad just bought her a brand new BMW which has only accelerated the problem. Literally. She’s now driving a car that doesn’t take up to 5 minutes to reach her desired speed of forced back in your seat fast.

The other day, we were driving through my neighbourhood. Down a really narrow road with parked cars all down one side. You’d think, that she would see the car driving head on towards us and, I don’t know. Wait for it to pass so that it didn’t drive into us.

She didn’t. She decided to speed up and force the oncoming driver to slam their brakes on in a way that almost caused a pileup.

That’s why I’ve decided that her next birthday gift is going to be a car that she doesn’t ‘have to’ be in full control of. How generous of me.

Not only will it save the lives of her, myself, and all of our friends that have the misfortune to be offered a lift by her. But it will also save innocent strangers that find themselves within a 5-mile radius. And it will save her bank account.

For her, cheap full coverage car insurance is now a no go. I suspect she’s been blacklisted by the majority of insurance providers in the country, to be honest. She’ll need to get something like very cheap car insurance no deposit. The “very cheap” part is probably any oxymoron for her!

So this solves all of our problems. And it’ll probably be quite a wake-up call to be behind the wheel of a car that isn’t recklessly swerving through lanes at alarming speeds I would think. I can’t wait. Anyway in the meantime, I figured out that I’m overpaying for auto insurance so now I get to spend an afternoon googling who has the cheapest auto insurance. FUN!
