Mashing the wrong pedal and committing to it 'till the end must be a XX chromosome thing.

A couple weeks ago Mom decided the house could use a more open floor plan.

In response to localized dealer complaints about Teslas direct sales, Tesla introduces its mobile dealership model. Easily identifiable by its large red "Tesla Sales and Delivery" hood ornament, it can setup in just moments, and retreat just as fast once dealerships lawyers swarm.

But seriously, she can afford one and we can't? Gosh, I hope she's got a couple airbags of her own, to match the airhead.

Another reason to keep sticks, press two pedals and it'll either stall, or not go anywhere.
