Talking of firsts, I had my first official driving lesson today (something I've avoided like the plague until now). Yay me!!!
Here's the story of how it all happened.
I was peacefully in the kitchen peeling carrots for a dish of fried rice when I was summoned to go driving!!!! -.-''
My initial reaction was to deny of course, 'cause that's how I react to things. After some persuading and being kicked out of the kitchen, I went to my "driving teacher" making him promise that he won't shout and we set off. As it turns out... driving has nothing genius about it. It's just a series of steps that need to be coordinated. All it needs is some getting used to.
Here's a flowchart:
And here's what I learnt more:
- The clutch and the accelerator are mutually exclusive .
- The brakes and the accelerator are also mutually exclusive.
- To know if you are in the required area you need to be able to see the white line . (How about roads where there are no white lines? :O )
