YKYAEM if *true story* you go to turn on your cruise control, hit the button for "ON" and then press "SET" you go driving down the road about a mile, try to hit the gas because you seem to be slowing down, nothing happens, and realize you put you car in neutral before you tried putting on the cruise control so that didn't turn on and you realized you have been coasting the WHOLE time (GOOD TIMES)

or

*Also true story* You press "ON" on your cruise control then press "SET" and drive down the road about .6 miles and get to a hill and start to slow down... you are like "What the heck?!" and realized that when you pressed the "ON" button, the cruise control was already set to "ON" so you really turned it OFF and have been coasting the whole time...

YKYAEM if, you have been thinking about getting a windshield sticker that says "My car is broken and will not go over 55mph" so maybe people will stop flashing you and riding your tail on the highway.. haha

or

*true story* MY car is doing this weird jerk type of thing between 55-62mph (but it fine under and over those speeds) where it acts like it is going up in rpms then going right back down over and over, you dont know what the problem is but you know you have an excuse for going 53mph on the highway now... *BTW anyone have any idea on what this may be?*

YNYAEM if u have about a mile till ur exit on the highway and someone passes and goes flying by just to get off the same exit because they can't stand to go ur speed. When u get to the toll booth, they're waiting in line to pay their toll and u go past them in the booth next to them cuz u have fastlane and they don't . *True story* This has happened more times than i can count.

YKYAEM if... Gas goes up about 10 cents in the last few days and you wonder if you can hypermile good enough to make you 1/2 tank of gas last long enough that you can wait until the gas goes back down a little (I think I might be able too >.<)
