Does anyone else drive your car?

So I rode the bus today and my better half worked from home, so in all it was a pretty good FE day. My wife wanted to do the grocery shopping tonight so she picked me up at the bus stop instead of me walking home. I jumped in the car and she jets out into traffic and is absolutely flogging the car, slamming through the gears, weaving through traffic. It felt like we went up on two tires around one corner but it could have been my imagination. The whole time I kept telling myself that it was only a couple of miles so it couldn't hurt my average that much, could it? Finally, I just reminded her that we were going to the grocery store not taking a trauma patient to the ER so please slow down.

So the question is does anyone else drive your car and how much do you think that it affects your FE?
