themasterdebater: Slaves2Darkness: jehovahs witness protection: PMS much?

Millennial, she expected to be given all the answer and pass, because she tried really hard. Just like she passed all her grade school classes. Stupid biatch should have just done what everyone else does and have mommy or daddy bribe the driving instructor.

That seems to be the new hotness - automatic passing. Up in Manitoba, Canada, they just started doing that a couple years ago - you child never fails a grade, they keep moving through and getting into the next grade even if they fail their tests. I just can't understand the logic, but I can almost guarantee it develops people like this girl who feels entitled to pass just because she showed up.

it going to get crazy when all these entitled kids show up to work late or don't finish a job and then wonder why unemployment is hitting new records. Unions could make a huge comeback from all this...


They do it in BC too. Last year, our daughter was in grade three. She has *significant* learning disabilities due to her FASD. Most of the homework they gave her was beyond her ability, but because she was well behaved, she wasn't considered a "problem". When we received her final report card, we expected that she'd be held back and made to repeat grade 3. Nope. "Promoted to Grade 4! Good job!".

We withdrew her from the public school system and enrolled her in a private school that appears to take things seriously (half way through this year, her academic progress was somewhere between grade 1 and grade 2).

W.T.F.??? Do people think this will really help things in the long run?

I passed on my first test at 15, driving a stick. It was not pretty, but it was functionally okay. Learned about defensive driving years later as a GI stationed in South Korea amidst very aggressive taxi drivers.

Rule #1: If you think you're a good driver, then good for you, Punkin!
Rule #2: Everyone else is an idiot, and dangerously so.
Rule #3: See Rule #2. Believe it. Adapt as necessary and you'll be fine.

Every driving test should be in a 1965 Ford pick up with three-on-the-tree and power nothing!
If you can pass in that you should be good for anything that doesn't require a CDL.

Killer Cars: Let's share CSBs on how pathetic our "driving tests" actually were.

Mine? In NH, all that was required at the time was to drive a square mile involving only one stoplight intersection and a single stop sign, then back into a parking space at the DMV. This was at (IIRC) the DMV in Milford.


Drive a square mile? Phaugh. All I had to do was drive for 3 gallons, and parallel park less than 8 Ohms from the curb.

I got a car when I was 11 years old as a birthday present.
It was a '56 beetle and my dad said I could drive it anywhere on the farm, the only condition was, I had to teach each of my three younger sisters how to drive.

They all had the same final exam: Walk out on the frozen pond, start the cold engine, and then with the bald tires, get it going through the slalom course, and then drive it back straight, do a controlled skid, and a back in park job in the pig pen. All on ice.

They all took their driver's tests in the winter, As they all were born in winter, as was I.
All of us passed first try.
We all had 5 years under our belts, and knew how to check oil, and change tires by then.

One lives in a ritzy neighborhood in SC and one in ritzy neighborhood in VA and when it snows, the neighbor email their grocery lists to them, they go shopping, and get free groceries out of it.
They do know how to drive. Their husbands (Vets, and officers) not so much.

I did my parallel parking, ended up about 3 feet from the curb. Declined the opportunity to try and get closer, as parallel parking was only a few points, but hitting the cones was an instant fail.

The instructor said the woman kept yelling, "Why didn't you tell me what I was doing? Where else can I take my test?"

She then blamed the mistake on her instructor. When the instructor got out of the car, the woman tried to run her over. The instructor barely got out of the way


/Its up to YOU to know the traffic laws and rules of driving. It's not the testers job to farking teach you how to drive into a farmers market you twunt. And there is NOWHERE else to take the test. You failed, and now you're going to jail for trying to run over your tester.

Forbidden Doughnut: No parallel parking requirement? I guess standards have been slipping in recent decades...


On mine, we ran through all of the normal driving stuff and saved parking for last. She was silent the entire time except for the instructions she gave me; I was terrified I'd failed miserably by doing something I didn't even know was wrong. When we got back into the lot, she turned to me and said "Well, you've got a perfect score right now. If you completely fail the parallel parking section, you'll still pass. Do you want to do it?"

I said no, went inside, and got my DL.

/still told the parents of my friends (I was the first to drive) that I got a perfect score on my driver's test.
//on the stuff I did, anyway
///left that part out

CSB: While studying in London at a school that shared campus space with the London College of Business, I had the chance to sit down with a middle-eastern oil-money (heiress? princess? daughter? was never sure) person. She had a no-joke Hunter Thompson Fear-and-Loathing drug collection suitcase that made her very popular amongst the Americans studying abroad at Regent's College, and I was invited to one of said sessions. Over some of the finest consumables I've ever had, the conversation naturally turned to her opulent lifestyle (she was one of the ones who was upset that the ATM in the lobby would only let her withdraw 1000 GBP/day) and how different things were when money was never, ever, EVER an obstacle to anything she did. Since I'm into cars, and the abundance of $100k cars in the student parking lot was always of great interest to me, I asked her what she drove.

Her: Oh, I don't drive.
Me: Why not? You can afford literally any car in the world; you don't want to?
Her: Not really. My dad offered to buy me a Mercedes SL65 (the V12 TT that ran about $165k) if I attempt my driver's test.
Me; Uh, ATTEMPT? Like, you don't even have to pass it and he'll give you a damn near $200,000 car?
Her: Yeah. Not really interested.
Me: Uh....care to explain why? I'd kill to have a car like that for a DAY.
Her: Well, for one, where I live, you have to take classes for a couple weeks that you can't buy your way out of and they're a pain in the ass and two, I have a man outside, right now, sitting in a Rolls Royce. I pick up my phone, call him, and tell him where I want to go. He's also security, a place-in-line holder, shopping-bag-carrier, and can cook a decent meal if he needs to. So, why would I ever drive myself anywhere when I can ride around in the backseat of a Rolls while texting my friends and drinking a latte, any time, any day, to anywhere? As a bonus, not having to drive myself means I can get as farked up as I want and never have to worry about getting home safely, OR being accosted by an undesireable.
Me: I suppose you have a point.

/tried to bang her
//she banged some asshole from Jersey instead
///he got sent home early for punching out a window and nearly severing tendons in his arm; confirmed in my mind everything I'd ever heard about kids from Jersey
////best 5 months of my life? Quite possibly.

Norfolking Chance: How on gods green earth do you fail an American driving test?

If you have the brain power to chew gum and walk at the same time you can pass it.

/just you try and pass a Finnish driving test
//if you can't drift you can't pass


Blow a stop sign, screw up parallel parking, run over the curb on curbside parking, or piss on the instructors head.
