Driving Tests


My kid is taking his driving test today and he wants to take it in my car, so I’m driving my wife’s car to work.

Her car is more upscale than mine. It has features like Average Speed displayed on the dashboard.

What I can’t figure out is why the Average Speed is always 24 MPH.

It was 24 MPH when I left the house . . . I’m almost at work and it’s still 24 MPH.

I wonder if there’s some way to reset that. Maybe if I press this MODE button here on the steering wheel . . .


Having your car radio suddenly come on full blast — which is what happened when I pressed the MODE button — is like someone jumping out of hiding and screaming at you. It’s alarming and you can’t recover from it right away.


Later, when I got home from work, I asked the boy, “How was the driving test?”

“Gotta go,” he said, as he brushed past me and out the door.

So I guess he passed it . . .
