Many years ago, I trained to work in a group home. They taught us over and over that distance was our friend. After six weeks, one of the residents chased me with a big knife.

They fired me for that, even though he was allowed to use sharp objects while under supervision. For six weeks, I would relieve one guy and see several rules that he broke, and more that the guy who relieved me also broke, but you have the S.W.A.T. team called during your shift and everybody loses their mind!

I do not tailgate, especially her, while both of us are driving my cars.

However, if she sets cruise control, it would help me maintain a constant speed.
