Things They Should Have Told You in High School

Volume 1: Driving.

How to learn to drive in an Ideal world:
1. Learn to drive.
2. Drive.

How to learn to drive in the Real World:
1. Learn to drive.
2. Get License.
3. Get Insurance.
4. Get Registration (Note: Steps 3 and 4 each have to happen AFTER the other).
5. Get a couple DWYs.
6. Get into a couple accidents.
7. Take a good hard look at your Insurance Policy.

Yeah, the speed limit on that road SHOULD be 15 MPH more. Yeah, the Ticket doesn't really seem all that bad, especially considering you actually WERE speeding. But the thousands of dollars you'll pay in Insurance over the Years doesn't get mentioned anywhere up front.

Vacation isn't over yet, and I still HATE THE WORLD.
