I've always...avoided driving double seat...I never say no...if the other person is ready to drive my vehicle..and take me double seat..:)
Not that i just cannot manage the vehicle with an added person...im not totally confident of doing so, and if Im not..obviously the person behind is not gonna be either..:) and what when he/she asks you.."can you drive me home today"..for whatever reason...and u say "sure..but you will have to drive"...snap...he/she is worried now...am I gonna reach safely...!
It so happenned today, that this colleague's bike..just wasnt starting..and it being late...and I was available there...that was the best possible option he had. Right from the beginning I was tensed...he was tensed..:)
So much so, that usually hes quite talkative...when he drives me..hes always yakking..but today he sits so quietly, I almost forget someones there..except for the weight...and old vehicle...and pickup issues..:) I actually tell him...chill ya, you can talk...(I mean...talk bindaas...ur gonna reach home safely..today...:)
But..the funniest part....he talks only when we stop at a signal. He doesnt talk when im driving, which is in a way good...but he doesnt talk because he's scared..he'll fall...and I can make that out, coz he cuts short...discussions or arguments..:)
then when theres a small u-turn, no traffic really coz its late, hes worried if I can take that turn..lol...this was the best ride I've ever had...coz I was so amused at anothers fear...!!
