Today, I was going about my own business driving The Princess home from school. We stopped at a light and I look over and see a woman flossing her teeth. Ewww! Maybe I'm alone on this, but I was pretty grossed out. Sometimes I wonder if people believe that they are invisible when they get in the car. I've got news lady, I can see you flossing your lunch out of your teeth!
The sad part is that it isn't even the grossest thing I've ever witnessed someone doing in their car. So here for you, I have prepared a list of the 5 grossest things I have witnessed people doing in their car (We'll put flossing at number 6):
1. Digging For Gold
We've all seen it at one point or another. The guy in the car next to you is going to town trying to discover hidden treasures... Or maybe it was a scratch? Either way, dude, I can see you! (By the way: I make a conscious effort to make my nose scratches very obvious because of that episode of Seinfield! Haha!)
2. Toenail Clippings
I don't care if you have the cutest little feet that smell like roses. They gross me out!! The last thing I want to look over and see while I'm out for a drive is you lifting your NASTY foot up and clipping your toenails. And what are you doing with the clippings?? I don't even want to think about it!
3. Pimple Popping
I totally get that you don't want that huge nasty pimple staring people in the eye, but seriously! Save it for the privacy of your own bathroom! Plus, a dirty mirror has got to be a safety hazard...
4. Cleaning Your Ears
Waxy build up? I don't want to see you digging a q-tip in your ear!! In fact, did you know that cleaning your ears with a q-tip can actually be bad for you? Most ear wax is actually good for you and works as a protective coating for the ear canal and protects you from infection (A little fun fact for ya!)
5. X Rated Activities
You're young, you're out having an amazing first, second, whatever date. Things get a little heated in the car... I don't care if you want to drive to some desolate spot in the middle of the night, that's your business. But please, don't do inappropriate things on the road where I or more importantly MY CHILD could possibly see you! Seriously, the best option is to just GET A ROOM!
What gross things have you seen people doing on the road? Or in public? I'd love to hear about it in a comment!
